Chant tells a personal story, journeying from the suburbs of Alberton to the squatter camp in Phola Park during the 80s and 90s.

Written and performed by Nhlanhla Mahlangu, directed by Gerard Bester and designed by Thando Lobese Moropa.

In memory of Mahlangu’s grandmother, Chant was first commissioned by the Juliedans Artist’s Lab in 2010 and premiered at the Juliedans Festival in Amsterdam in 2011. Other performance include: Goethe on Main and Dance Umbrella Festival in 2012; the Jomba! Festival in 2015; and Season 2 at the Centre for the Less Good Idea in 2017, in which Mahlangu was a guest curator.
