A leap into the unknown

A dancer leaps across the stage at The Place theatre in London, where the Tavaziva Dance Company will perform as part of a new programme announced yesterday.

Under the direction of Zimbabwean choreographer, Bawren Tavaziva, the company is known for its exuberant modern take on traditional African dance. The new show, Double Take, follows My Friend Robert, which last year drew on Bawren Tavaziva's experiences of growing up in Zimbabwe under Robert Mugabe.
