Toyi-toyi is a dance of protestation that accompanies the protest song that sprang up from the streets. This dance first appeared in the activist camp in Zimbabwe where South African youths were sheltering in the 80s. It lends a supplementary strength to the freedom chants. It comprises jumping and very virulent chatting. This choreographic show for four performers uses both dance and spoken testimonies to recount the life stories of three South African dancers from Katlehong and the encounter with one French dancer from Hors Se’rie Company.
