MEDIA ALERT: INDONI DANCE GROUP WELCOMED HOME BY MINISTER MARAIS

On Monday, 7 November 2016, Western Cape Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Anroux Marais will welcome Indoni home following their outstanding performances at the of Africa festival in Perth Out and at the Seymour Centre in Sydney, Australia.  

Indoni is a group of 14 talented dancers who come from vulnerable backgrounds but rose above all the odds through developing their artistic skills. The trip to Australia afforded the young South Africans, hailing from Gugulethu and other townships in the Western Cape, the opportunity to tell their stories through dance and music. They received standing ovations after both performances.

A short video of one of their performances can be found on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMA0Uaf7n3w
