Dancing all the way to New York

Denzel Washington, Lupito Nyong’o, Oprah Winfrey and Donald Molosi are just some of the blockbuster names that have starred on the Broadway stages.

Located in the heart of New York, Broadway is widely considered to represent the highest level of commercial theatre in the world.

Indeed, the just ended 2017-18 season attracted an audience of over 13 million, with the season’s shows grossing US$1, 697, 458, 795 (that’s a lot of Pula!).

Now Botswana’s very own 34-year-old artistic director and founder of Mophato Dance group, Andrew Kola is set to lead his 46-member cast to the Big Apple to mark Botswana’s second entry on Broadway.

On the 22nd and 23rd of August, Kola and his ‘I Love Botswana’ ensemble will fly country’s flag high with their ‘Pula’ production.

This week Voice reporter SHARON MATHALA visited the crew during one of their rigorous rehearsals, where she managed to pin Kola down for a quick chat during a break in practice.
