Making its U.S. premiere, The Inkomati (dis)cord is a work made collaboratively by South African artist Boyzie Cekwana and Mozambique artist Panaibra Canda. In 1984, the Mozambique of Samora Machel and the South African apartheid state signed the Nkomati accord, a non-aggression pact. The Inkomati (dis)cord  is Cekwana and Canda’s referral to this failed historical agreement, as well as the river that lent its name to it. In an attempt to break through artificial borders and traverse territories, using their own bodies, skins, identities and histories, the choreographers explore the internalized colonial boundaries that still alienate shared histories and aspirations.
