Part ritual, part manifestation, part war, part opera - NEHANDA is a durational performance structured in seven scenarios called 'days' and is an immersive, participatory, and durational spectacle. This new opera features musical forms, melodies, and instruments that wholly subvert the form - think: turntables, Ngoma drums, mbira, and samples of field recordings. Working from and within the ancestral spirit of Mashonaland in Zimbabwe; Nehanda embodies a sacred space where performers fight for the liberation of the colonial body with a case against the empire.
