William Kentridge’s ‘The Head & The Load’ included on Holland Festival

William Kentridge’s critically-acclaimed multimedia performance The Head & The Load opens the 2019 Holland Festival (29 – 31 May). The Head & The Load tells the untold story of the almost two million African porters and soldiers who served in the British, French and German armies during the First World War. Featuring music by long-time collaborators Phillip Miller with Thuthuka Sibisi, Kentridge’s unique vision brings together an international ensemble cast of musicians, singers, dancers, and performers alongside film projections and shadow play to create a landscape of extraordinary proportion and imagination that unfolds across a 50-metre wide stage.
