Madiba 2015

Commissioned by the Southbank Centre for the Nelson Mandela Weekend and Festval of Love. 

In 2015 the Festival of Love, in London, was in remembrance of Nelson Mandela and his messages of love and reconciliation.

For the festival Bawren Tavaziva with assistance by South African dancer Bafana Solomon Matea created Madiba; a large-scale dance performed by degree and graduate dancers from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

It was performed in and around the colourful and dramatic Festival of Love site installations along Mandela Walk and the Riverside Terrace at London’s Southbank Centre.
