In Zulu, ‘Enyangeni’ means something like ‘ascending’, and refers to the moon. Choreographer and composer Nhlanhla Mahlangu directs Enyangeni, an emotional journey centred on vertical movement. Three female dancers and six male musicians stage this multitalented South African’s provocative and energetic performance. It is followed by William Kentridge’s interpretation of Ursonate. He took German poet Kurt Schwitters’ famous sound poem from 1932 as the starting point for a performance. Kentridge has several tricks up his sleeve for the scenes where Schwitters challenges performers to show their creativity.
