Named for a river and the underlying mistrust dividing two countries, Inkomati (Dis)cord has much to say about the pan-African experience of colonialism, division, war, power, violence and mistrust yet remains relevant on the world stage. Choreographer/performers Panaibra Gabriel Canda of Mozambique and Boyzie Cekwana of South Africa are dance leaders in their respective countries and forces to be reckoned with on the international scene.

Having performed separately for Global DanceFest in the past, Canda and Cekwana are joining together now in the creation and presentation of one of my favorite dance-theater pieces of all, time. Inkomati (Dis)cord, Global DanceFest's very last presentation, is also completely expressive of our intentions over the years--work that is socially challenging, politically energizing and brilliantly performed.

-Marjorie Neset, Global DanceFest Artistic Director
