Provocative South African choreographer Robyn Orlin returns to Peak Performances after the success of 2011’s exuberant Walking next to our shoes…. For her latest work, she joins forces with Germaine Acogny’s famed Compagnie Jant-Bi, a touchstone of new and traditional African dance in Dakar, to investigate the charged -- and often taboo -- issue of the human body itself.  Questioning standards of ugliness and beauty, illness and health, Orlin places the body itself at the heart of the debate, revealing the range of pressures towhich it is subjected, especially in the African context.

*No charge for University-enrolled undergraduates
