Talkin' Broadway V.J.

Vuka Uzibuse

Occasionally we like to take a look at other forms of entertainment such as Cabaret or Dance. Since we now have a regular Cabaret column by Jonathan Frank, I thought I'd take a look at what's happening in the Dance world for something that would be of interest to theatre fans.

Vuka Uzibuse, The Zulu Dance and Drumming Troupe, will make its New York City debut at BCBC (Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College) on Saturday, October 23 at 8 PM. This exciting company of drummers, singers and dancers from South Africa has performed to critical acclaim in the Far East, North Africa and Europe. Vuka Uzibuse is part of BCBC's World of Dance series.

With a repertoire that brings to life the traditions of indigenous South African dance and culture, Vuka Uzibuse's performance demonstrates how dance is connected with tribal rituals associated with war, marriage, birth and death. Dance for Zulus is an integral part of their culture and celebrates life in all its various forms. These African traditions are presented in a memorable and spirited show by 24 drummers, singers and dancers who actively seek to bring their culture to Western audiences.

Tickets for Vuka Uzibuse are $25 & $30. All BCBC performances are at the Walt Whitman Theater located on the campus of Brooklyn College (one block from the junction of Flatbush and Nostrand Avenues). Tickets can be ordered by calling the BCBC box office at (718) 951-4500 or by faxing (718) 951-4437. Box office hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 1-6 PM. For Group Sales call (718) 951-4600 ext. 27.
