Third World Bunfight - The House of the Holy Afro

Third World Bunfight - The House of the Holy AfroFrom South Africa

"...An invigorating celebration of the riches the cultures of this country have to offer" Pretoria News

Welcome to The House of the Holy Afro, a highly-styled package of Afro-kitsch to electrify your eyes, ears and bodies on the dance floor. In shamanistic ceremonies in rural villages in the heartlands of South Africa ancestral spirits are summoned and revered with songs that arise from dreams. In the churches of the townships, soaring gospel songs lead people into states of spiritual communion and trance. The House of the Holy Afro weaves these melodies together with driving house beats and electrifying African choreography and design. Internationally acclaimed South African performance troupe, Third World Bunfight, collaborates with one of the country’s hottest house DJ’s, Dino Moran (Ibiza, Ministry of Sound), and hip club poet Odidi Mfenyana, to take you on a trip through the rhythms of 21st century Africa.

Under Artistic Director Brett Bailey, Third World Bunfight has been making provocative, celebratory African performance works since its formation in South Africa in 1996. Its plays have won several awards and have toured extensively at home and abroad.
