This performance is a working development piece utilizing the art of Mappuka (known today as ‘twerking’), a tribal dance which was performed by the women of the Ivory Coast as a ritual for augmenting fertility.

Soca-to-Me is an Afro-Caribbean and African inspired dance company which offer various dance classes, performances and events all ran by Azula Bandit. Azula (AKA Lerato) blends an eclectic mix of cultural influences into her work to create her unique compositions and dance styles.
