The Culture Project Presents MoLoRa


Opening June 30, the Culture Project will present the New York premiere of the stage play MoLoRa (the orignal production took place at the Market Theatre in Jo'burg). Set after the fall of apartheid, South African director Yael Farber reimagines the ancient Greek Oresteia to tell the story of  South Africa's transition to democracy and the reconciliation process.

The role of the Greek chorus is played by members of the Ngqoko Cultural Group who contribute their haunting throat singing of the Xhosa tradition. Hailing from deep in rural South Africa, these guardians of a dying musical tradition bear witness as the crimes of apartheid are viscerally remembered.

Performances are at the Ailey Citigroup Theater at The Joan Weill Center for Dance (405 West 55th Street, NYC). For times and tickets, check Molora.org.
