The power within


Delving deep into the unknown, Mana will take you on a journey. Feel the hairs on your neck stand up and shivers down your spine as you encounter the force which resides within all animate and inanimate objects, the stuff of which magic is made. Watch exceptional dancers express soul, energy and precision to a stunning backdrop of commissioned music and cutting-edge lighting design, with movement styles drawing from Afro-fusion, Martial Arts techniques, the essence of Flamenco and Ballet. A Thousand Shepherds: Spanish choreographer Jos Agudo creates A Thousands Shepherds, an energetic celebration of discipline and dedication, inspired by spiritual traditions and ritual. Mana (same name as double-bill): South African Choreographer Vincent Mantsoe will take you back to ancient times, evoking the spirit and earthy ambience of African dance and Shaman traditions. The word mana is used in over twenty-four languages, its interpretation unifies beliefs, cultures andages. Feel alive with ACE dance and music.
