I Am An African inspires as 2012 Grahamstown Festival in South Africa

Today I found out that my poem, I Am An African, featured in a dance show by the same title at the 2012 Grahamstown Arts Festival in South Africa. Here is the blurb from the official programme:

I Am An African

Festival: Fringe  Genre: Dance  Venue: Victoria Theatre

A theatrical dance explosion of rhythm, athleticism, artistry and entertainment. Technically awe-inspiring dancers unfold the intricacies and eccentricities of choreographic dance fusions. A foot-stomping, nail-biting, hand-clapping audience will marvel at the works of some of the proudest South African choreographers. This highly entertaining, proudly South African work is set to the hauntingly beautiful poem I am an African by Wayne Visser


Duration : 70 minutes
Directed By : Kelsey Middleton
Choreographed By : Supa Zungu And Kelsey Middleton
Written By : Supa Zungu and Kelsey Middleton To The Poem Of Wayne Visser
Composed By : Aubrey
Performed By : Musicians in CHNA with Footprint
Featuring : Supa Zungu, Thabiso Khomo, Muzi Buthelezi

I'd like to get hold of the artists, so if anyone knows them, please put us in touch.
