Bal­let goes Zulu

CityPress - - T# - Inala – A Zulu Bal­let Inala with Lady­smith Black Mambazo

will in­vade Lon­don, cour­tesy of four-time Grammy-win­ning a cap­pella group Lady­smith Black Mambazo. They take an­other leap for­ward with this col­lab­o­ra­tion with lead­ing chore­og­ra­pher Mark Bald­win.

From Septem­ber 17, the stage of Sadler’s Wells will see two cul­tures merge in a show fea­tur­ing 18 dancers and mu­si­cians. The bal­let will then tour Eng­land. The group will ap­pear on stage and have also con­trib­uted to the orig­i­nal score.

Award-win­ning Bald­win uses Western clas­si­cal bal­let to ac­com­pany the tra­di­tional Zulu mu­sic.

The Guardian has called Inala a “thing of stir­ring beauty”.
