This is a vibrant musical piece told through narration, music and gumboot dance - described as a South African version of Tap Dogs or even Lord of the Dance - from international company Mthakathi Productions.
Stimela The Musical is a unique South African musical story which tells a tale of rural African men who come by train from all over Africa in search of a better life and greener pastures in the city of gold, Johannesburg.
was born out of the oppressive gold mines of South Africa. Forbidden to speak and in almost complete darkness, the slave laborers developed their own language by slapping their gumboots and rattling their ankle chains. In time it has developed into a truly unique dance form.
Fans of anything from STOMP to Ladysmith Black Mambazo are sure to love Stimela, transferring to Greenwich from South Africa for just three performances.
