Tavaziva returns to the Stephen Joseph Theatre on 4 November with Africarmen, a sumptuous and evocative dance production loosely based on Georges Bizet’s popular opera Carmen. 

Through a synthesis of ballet, contemporary and African dance, Bawren Tavaziva’s powerful choreography is performed by a cast of outstanding dancers.

Played out through the entanglement of desire, deceit and corruption in a township of oil-laden Equatorial Guinea, lingering ancestral voices are at work here amongst the dreams of a better life.

This latest production from Tavaziva, previously seen at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Tavaziva 10, Sensual Africa and Heart of Darkness, features a new score composed and arranged by Fayyaz Virji of the acclaimed Warriors International and is the company’s most ambitious work to date.

“…one of the best young contemporary choreographers working today” – The Stage

“What counts is what they do and how blazingly well they do it!”- The Times

“Amazing, sublime, bold, daring, sensual, powerful… a contemporary masterpiece” – Afridiziak Theatre News

Africarmen can be seen at the Stephen Joseph Theatre on Wednesday 4 November at 7.30pm. Tickets, priced from £10 to £15, or £6 for under 30s, are available online at and from the box office on 01723 370541.
