Tavaziva’s AFRICARMEN is a sumptuous and evocative dance production loosely based on Georges Bizet’s popular opera Carmen. Through a synthesis of ballet, contemporary and African dance, Bawren Tavaziva’s powerful choreography is performed by a cast of outstanding dancers. Played out through the entanglement of desire, deceit and corruption in a township of oil-laden Equatorial Guinea, lingering ancestral voices are at work here amongst the dreams of a better life. 

With a new score composed and arranged by Fayyaz Virji of the acclaimed Warriors International, AfriCarmen is Bawren Tavaziva’s most ambitious work to date. Tavaziva’s previous show was rated 5* and described by press and audiences as:

“a contemporary African masterpiece – amazing, sublime, truly inspirational”

 “better than excellent – OUTSTANDING”
