AFRICAN CYPHER
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 6 @ 7:30PM - W/ Q&A AND RECEPTION

AFRICAN CYPHER
This is the physicality of the dance; the awe of a body flowing through space, flipping, spinning, and snaking as if giving birth to a new means of self-expression. Across South African cities and townships, dance has long been a mirror of the community, replaying allegorical stories that both educate and entertain. The film harnesses the energy of the unique and diverse performance styles of isiPantsula and sBhujwa to Krump and B-boy. Crime and poverty may be a challenging reality in township life, but the dancers featured describe how their art has enriched their lives with new avenues, and pay it forward by engaging with youth through mentorship and dance training that breaks the cycle of crime and offers hope. Directed by Bryan Litlle, 2012, 88 min., South Africa, Documentary, Zulu/ Xhosa/Afrikaans/ English subt. Q&A after screening.
