The African Cypher

The birthplace of ritual celebration, council, story telling and dance.

Bay Area Premiere!

"I dance as if I have a gun to my head."  Mada Sthembiso, (Shakers&Movers)

Street dance in South Africa is a complex, convoluted underworld; that, like most sub-cultures, exists as a sum of its participants. In Mapetla, Soweto if you steal phones and hand bags you will not live long. The community will kill you. If you do a heist, they will tell the police you are not there. Prince tells me this as we walk back to Mada's place from the shisa nyama. (an informal outdoor fire where you can buy some meat to cook and drink a beer.) Prince is a pantsula. He used to be a tsotsi, a gangster, a thug. Today he walks his streets with pride; he is a pantsula dancer and a little bit famous. Tom London from Soweto's Finest says, "When we dance we find purpose with our bodies".
