It ain’t the JOMBA! Festival yet but it is the JOMBA! Colloquium

Coming up next week (June 2 -4), the CCA launches its three-day dance colloquium/conference - JOMBA! Mashambisane Dialogues to support focused South African and African (and Diaspora) dance and performance scholarship in an accessible and community-driven manner.
