South Africa's most beloved choreographer, Vincent Sekwati Mantsoe, enthralls audiences with his sinewy, fluid and shape-shifting new solo, "Skwatta." Born from his alarm at the increase in squatter camps as urbanization clogs South Africa's cities, "Skwatta" portrays the poverty alongside irrepressible expressions of happiness. Mantsoe dances as if channeling the ancestral spirits through a contemporary dance language that fuses the cultures of Pedi and Shangaan to Asian and Aboriginal.

Sharing the evening, Chinese choreographer Yin Mei delves into childhood memories of growing up during the Cultural Revolution in the profound solo "DIS/oriented: Antonioni in China." "DIS/oriented" takes the form of a dance-theater "conversation" with Michelangelo Antonioni's seldom-seen 1972 documentary portraying everyday life in China, "Chuon Kuo Cina," which was not shown in China until 2004.
