Join Professor Price of the College of Education and Human Services for an introduction to life and education in South Africa, under Apartheid and beyond. Get a first-hand look at South Africa's protest movement, and learn about the resistance dances - such as the Gumboot dance practiced by Via Katlehong - that grew out of the townships. Refreshments will be provided.

Katlehong Dance Party!
After the Saturday night performance of Katlehong Cabaret at the Kasser Theater, stick around for a FREE lobby dance party with the cast. This was such a huge hit during the company's last visit in 2009, we're doing it again!

Produced by Damien Valette Productions. Co-produced by Via Katlehong Dance, Peak Performances at Montclair State (NJ), Théâtre national de Chaillot, and Scéne nationale d'Orléans. Supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
