Do not miss “RHYTHMS THE GUMBOOTS SHOW” with  4 outstanding performances from 13 to 14 November in THE LYRIC THEATRE, Gold Reef City.

Created by Philippe Barreau & Magda Hadnagy, Produced by Philippe Barreau, Directed by Magda Hadnagy, and Choreographed by Mduduzi Magagula.

Get ready and let yourself be transported by the tribal songs and be captured by the intense rhythms of the South African miners’ dances, the famous gumboots.

This show is a physical performance, a historical tale, and a digest of the best of traditional South African dance and singing. The principal instruments are their black boots, pounding the ground, and the callous hands of the dancers who beat, tap, ring, and vibrate the gum.

Guitars, piano, percussion, marimba, and drums accompany the dances and songs in English, Zulu, and Xhosa, captivating polyphonies.

Experience the Fierce dances, the art of rhythm, and captivating songs … as all audiences who have already attended the show can vouch, you will not be able to resist the urge to get up and to dance relentlessly during the hour and a half show by fifteen fabulous dancers, singers, and musicians!

RHYTHMS THE GUMBOOTS SHOW, a great moment of happiness to enjoy with your family.
