Tavaziva Celebrates 15 Years


Tavaziva is one of the UK’s leading professional, contemporary-African dance companies, led by Zimbabwean-born Artistic Director, Choreographer and Music Producer Bawren Tavaziva who established the company in 2004. Now a national touring company, supported by Arts Council England as a National Portfolio Organisation, Bawren Tavaziva has reached audiences in every corner of the UK.

In Tavaziva’s 15th year, the company will embark on the creation of its new production BOY’S KHAYA, featuring seven exceptional dancers. With his distinctive African style that is highly original, inventive and thrilling to watch, this new work includes cutting-edge digital design and motion-capture technology, adding to the striking visual staging of BOY’S KHAYA.

The show will premiere and tour in spring 2020 and will be accompanied by an education and participation programme of workshops, masterclasses, residencies and talks.

“Looking back over the last 15 years, it’s amazing to take stock of all that we have achieved. Thousands of people have come in to contact with our work through performances, workshops, projects and commissions. I’m excited for BOY’S KHAYA and using technology to create a new experience for our audiences. I’m looking forward to what the next 15 years has in store!” Bawren Tavaziva
