Reviews – What the Critics Say

 “Both High voltage and down and dirty with leaps worthy of Baryshnikov.”

–New York Times

–Former President Jimmy Carter

“Soweto Street Beat has found the perfect formula for surviving in today’s politically sensitive, entertainment obsessed arts climate. It presents an engaging mix of uplift, authenticity and show biz.”

–World Africa Network

 

“The Soweto Street Beat Dance Theater came to Columbus and entertained thousands at the fourth annual Columbus International Festival. These native born Africans stunned the audience with their dance moves, acrobatics, leaps, jumps, drum beats and song. The Soweto Street Beat appeared on stage in African tribal warrior attire made of skins, furs and leathers. Accompany by mask, shields and spears, these costumes made the crowd take notice right away.”

–Columbus Times

 

“Direct from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival a group of talented South African men explode onto the stage in an extravaganza of dance, rhythm and song. Musically brilliant, physically amazing, Soweto Street Beat enthralls its audiences with a boot slapping celebration of urban Africa life. We’re talking pull your, heart, strings resilience and a symbolic show of strength. We’re talking amazing a cappella singing and Olympic displays of athleticism. We’re talking infectious laughter and the heat of the beat that sets you brain on fire and makes you want to dance yourself. We’re talking a hit! We’re talking mega-huge.”

–The Boston Globe

 

“Under the direction of South African Choreographer, Isabelle Doll, and her husband and company founder Peter Ngcobo, the dancers give a thrilling, unforgettable performance. They continue to tour American cities, and were highlighted as a part of the 1996 Cultural Olympiad in Atlanta.”

–Caltech, Pasaden, CA
