Unmute Dance Theatre presents ‘Traces of Memory’, a work in commemoration of the late Themba Mbuli, co-founder and Associate Artistic Director of Unmute. The company goes down memory lane, revisiting through dance and the display of imagery some of the works created by Mbuli during his 7 years with the company. Unmute is also working with Elvis Sibeko who is composing the soundscape for this work.
Mbuli had initially applied for a different work for this year’s festival. Sadly due to Covid-19 the company was unable to continue with presenting this work. The company however will still be going on stage with a new work paying tribute to his life and the legacy he has left behind.
