Insango Ensemble: Dance Workshop
‘rich choral music and exuberant dance…glorious.’ – Financial Times
Mountview is very proud to be working with award-winning South African theatre company Isango Ensemble to present immersive workshops in music and dance. This is a chance to explore South African performance traditions with world-leading practitioners.
This practical dance workshop will teach you new dance skills in an alternative cultural setting, exploring expressive group dance. It is led by Isango’s creative team and accompanied by performers from SS Mendi: Dancing the Death Drill and A Man of Good Hope, the company’s productions playing in rep at the Royal Opera House this spring.
The workshops repeat in the morning and afternoon, so you can book for both to enjoy music and dance.
Free places for Southwark residents:
Half of the places on every workshop are offered FREE to Southwark residents. These can be booked by phone or in person only. You must be able to prove your eligibility by showing your Southwark Presents card.
