South African choreographer Fana Tshabalala completes a three week residency with Deeply Rooted Dance Theater (DRDT) in July 2017 to create an American-focused adaptation of his work INDUMBA. Created to illuminate the perpetual impact of apartheid politics in his native South Africa, Tshabalala is adapting the work for an American audience. “Indumba” means African healing hut, promising a work of stirring resilience and reconciliation. Deeply Rooted premieres the new incarnation of INDUMBA at its 20th Anniversary Finale performances, “Deeply Free,” December 8–10 at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago in Hyde Park.
