Kutamba School appears at a variety of public events during the year including Sheffield Chance to Dance and Bakewell Day of Dance. We have also performed at the Burton Street project for the dance your socks off festival .
Following on from SEMEAS's programme "Singing for Change" in 2012 Kutamba was working in collaboration with SOSA-XA! Sounds of Southern Africa. The choir has been supporting the Singing for Change programme through its linking project with the Es'phakeni Youth Arts centre in Pumula in Bulawayo.
Our follow on programme entitled "Dancing for Change" was intended to broaden an understanding of global development issues as they are affected by massive consumption in the North that has incremental effects on the agricultural lands and climate of the South. We will be launching live performances linked to great audio visual and online material supported by key departments at the University of Sheffield. A recent event has cojoined with our Zimbabwean friends at the Guisborough Forest festival in 2012 . We are immensely grateful to BBC Performing Arts Fund for their support in enabling the development of the project. Watch some of our projects on KutambaDanceUK TV on You Tube including an extract from the Inkanysiso "reflections" concert on 14 April. The Dancing for Change dance drama is also fully available on a DVD entitled "Inkanyiso" and is available through the shop on the SOSA-XA -website.
