Joyce Theater

Physically charged and visually striking, Cion: Requiem of Ravel’s Boléro is a powerful work featuring live singing, choreographed by South African star Gregory Vuyani Maqoma. Set in a graveyard filled with the haunting music of Isicathamiya singers—an a cappella style originating from the Zulu people—the production draws inspiration from Zakes Mda’s novel Cion and Maurice Ravel’s Boléro. Presented as part of the pioneering opera-theatre festival PROTOTYPE, in Maqoma’s words, the show is “a lament, a requiem required to awaken a part of us, the connection to the departed souls.”
