Boy's Khaya: Tavaziva Dance

Tavaziva Dance return to Edinburgh with Bawren Tavaziva’s powerful dance piece that questions who we are in today’s divided world.

A mesmerising journey through Bawren Tavaziva’s early life in Zimbabwe told through a combination of contemporary, ballet, and African dance, music and spoken word.  

Performed by five outstanding dancers, post-colonialism and injustice create a rich source of untold truths in Boy's Khaya, making this unique thought-provoking work a profound comment on what it is to be human.  

'Boy's Khaya' or ‘servant's house’ is a colonial legacy that still exists today in Zimbabwe. It refers to living quarters used for Black servants, in stark contrast to the luxurious suburban dwellings of white families
