ABOUT THE ARTISTS

The Is’Thatha Dance Project is the brainchild of Olwethu Sotiya, who decided in his final year at Indoni to take the next step and form his own Dance Project. He teamed up with his peers and Is’Thatha was born in February 2019.
The project is a platform for young fresh professional talent, all from a disadvantaged background. They can express their creativity to a bigger audience, whilst not forgetting their responsibility towards the community, especially women and children.
The first creation, Domination, is a reflection on their hardship in every-day life.
