Anna Mudeka : FARAWAY

on Saturday, 22nd June 2019
Venue: The Cut Arts Centre, Halesworth IP19 8BY link
Reaching back to the Bantu migration some 5000 years ago from the Tanganyika and Baka tribal regions, Anna Mudeka takes us on an inspirational journey to modern-day Zimbabwe, London and Norfolk. Paying homage to the great ancestors of Zimbabwe, especially Nehanda - the powerful female warrior who united the tribes and led the first Chimurenga war in 1896-7, Anna tells the story of her childhood in a free Zimbabwe - about the influence of her grandmother and the difficult decision to leave and pursue her dream as an artist in the UK.
Kure Kure/Faraway speaks of the challenges and opportunities of starting a new life in a different country, this narrative rings true to contemporary lives and tackles issues facing the world today, posing important questions around migration, cultural identity and changing belief systems.
Authentic live and recorded music permeates this thought provoking show as Anna showcases traditional skills; haunting vocals, highly accomplished mbira playing, dancing and drumming accompanied by multi-media visuals.
Ticket Details: Ticket price - Standard £12.00
