Event Description

Mzansi Cymru: Torchbearers

Wales Millennium Centre and Valleys Kids are pleased to present Torchbearers, a rollercoaster epic saga told by the people of the South African townships and the South Wales valleys in a cross-cultural performance mixing drama, music, circus and dance.

It tells the story of a young Welsh actor and an African dancer who in 1964 are given the chance of living the dream when they win parts in the film Zulu. As the two young people are drawn closer to each other they find themselves falling in love, but their lives are ripped apart by the apartheid system and they never see each other again until fate plays its hand forty years later.

The communities of the South Wales Valleys and the townships of South Africa bring this inspiring love story to life as the massed ranks of Valley voices, musicians and performers join forces with stellar groups from South Africa such as Zip Zap circus, Dance for All, Amampondo and the Fezeka Choir to tell both sides of the story.


Wales Millennium Centre - Donald Gordon Theatre (£10 - £22)

July 20 - 1.30pm & 7.30pm
