Expressions of Hope

Amajuba reveals the scars of a nation

For over four decades, South Africans lived under a government-imposed blanket of oppression. While the years of racial discrimination officially ended in 1998, many of the practices created by apartheid still exist in the conflicted country. Yael Farber, an award-winning writer and director raised in Johannesburg, has created many artistic works that express these years of turmoil. Her latest is Amajuba: Like Doves We Rise, which is being presented as a part of Miami Dade College’s Cultura del Lobo performance series.

Written in collaboration with her cast of five, Amajuba is a visual journey that entertains with as much humor as sadness, proving the energy and strength of a nation through song and dance.
