performing arts & music / events / Vincent Mantsoe // Compagnie NOA // Ottawa

Experience the riveting mastery of an incomparable artist. Vincent Mantsoe’s Afro-fusion mixes traditional African dance with contemporary Western street styles/martial arts to create an exhilarating and passionate new language. He embodies control, intensity, and absolute commitment.

Reflecting on the poverty-stricken life in South Africa’s squatter camps, NTU deals with nothingness, while Skwatta says there is something happening within that nothingness. Both works are politically and socially charged and Mantsoe is perturbed and forceful, sinewy and tense. He finds hope and salvation in the human spirit — often fragile and tortured, but capable of great dignity and pride.

This show is presented by the National Arts Center (NAC dance).
