Presented by Mubanga Studios

Experience rare African dance styles which serve as guideposts to the lost and misplaced fragments of African history.  

Alkebulan “Mother of mankind’’.

African dances have been one of the most significant means to foster social closeness, promote community, connectedness and healing. Dancing in synchrony with others has potent psychological effects due to the self-othering, merging-mirroring and modelling that takes place. Through dance, the individual sees themselves as belonging to a group in a positive and harmonising way.

This event is choreographed and directed by Mubanga, a Zambian born director and choreographer who shares his deep cultural knowledge by exploring Africa's precolonial history through the artistry of dance, music and poetry.

This one night only performance at the State Theatre Centre is performed by Mubanga and members of the African communities from WA, NSW, SA and Victoria.  The showcase will include special performances highlighting the regions and dances practiced in West Africa, East Africa, Central and Southern Africa.
