Uncles and Angels

An interactive dance/video collaboration between Nelisiwe Xaba and Mocke J van Veuren.

The Reed Dance is a colourful, cultural celebration that promotes respect for young women and preserves the custom of keeping girls as virgins until marriage.

Uncles, kings, big men, presidents, powerful men, VIP men, old women, strict aunties, young girls, purity, respect, heritage, tradition…
