Bawren was invited to In2it International Dance Festival in Norway to create an adapted version of Izindava with three Tavaziva dancers and 23 Norwegian dancers – including five professional dancers from Compassion 2 Dance, three dance students from Sunndal Culture school, and 11 dance students from Kristiansund Opera Ballet center
The dancers had one week to learn the unique choreography and due to all their hard work and determination, the dancers delivered an incredible performance on 30 September 2018. Tavaziva dancers, Asmara, Nicole, and Harriet, really enjoyed collaborating with the Norwegian dancers, and both Bawren and Tendai Makurumbandi, artistic director of Compassion 2 Dance and In2it International Dance Festival programme leader, were thrilled with the outcome.
We are proud to say that the performance received a standing ovation!
