UMOJA @ Peacock Theatre
UMOJA is a pulsating musical celebration of South African song and dance, which is set to light up the West End in 2012. The show has previously enjoyed two popular runs in the West End and has been seen by over four million people worldwide. UMOJA returns to London for a run at the Peacock Theatre from 31st January to 19th February 2012.
Originally created by Todd Twala and Thembi Nyandeni as a way of a reminding a new generation of South Africans of their heritage, UMOJA, meaning ‘togetherness’ in Zulu, has won critical plaudits and collected multiple awards since its premiere in 2000. From the potent rhythms of tribal music to the joy of gospel and the pounding energy of contemporary kwaito, UMOJA unites 30 singers, dancers, drummers, marimba players and musicians, who represent the best of South Africa’s young performers.
Tuesday 31 January – Sunday 19 February (Performances: Tue-Sun 7.30pm, Sat & Sun mats at 2.30pm)
Tickets: £15 – £42
