Meany Hall – Studio Theatre

Produced in partnership with Bill T. Jones and New York Live Arts

South African choreographer Robyn Orlin created this critique of shifting power relationships for the 20th anniversary of the end of Apartheid. Playful, ironic and featuring dancer and performance artist Albert Ibokwe Khoza, the work is a journey through the seven deadly sins that Orlin considers a “requiem for humanity.” Torn between sin, transformation, decline and brilliance, Khoza ritualizes an incantation of hope that is full of curiosity and positivity, despite the never-ending destruction facing future generations.


Please note: This performance includes partial nudity.


After the Friday performance, there will be a post-show conversation with Robyn Orlin and Albert Ibokwe Khoza, moderated by UW Professor Jasmine Mahmoud.
