The Meal explores universal topics of love, art, eating and cooking through contemporary dance

On Monday, artists from South Africa staged The Meal, a contemporary dance performance exploring the universal subjects of cooking, eating, art and love.

The performance celebrated the creative capacity of young South Africans to subvert and transform instruments of oppression and denigration into expressions of ecstasy and beauty, and reflected on the relationship between women from different generations and races.

The Meal was choreographed by Mamela Nyamza from Cape Town (South Africa), who studied ballet in her hometown and at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center of New York.

Following her graduation, Nyamza joined the State Theatre Dance Company of Johannesburg. She performs extensively in South Africa as well as participating in many major international musicals, festivals and tours, whilst her award-winning choreography has been shown throughout Europe and the United States.
