Neliswe Xaba & Mocke J van Veuren Award-Winning Uncle & Angels at UJ

After travelling to over twenty cities across the world, Nelisiwe Xaba & Mocke J van Veuren’s Uncles & Angels will return to Johannesburg for a run at the UJ Art Centre Theatre (23 – 25 August). Winner of the FNB Art Prize in 2013, the interactive dance and video collaboration explores questions of chastity, virginity testing, purity and tradition. Altogether, the performance presents a compelling examination of the manipulation of cultural heritage, questioning how we look toward tradition for solutions to contemporary problems.
