Gregory Maqoma is one of the most talented choreographers and performers to emerge from the new generation of South African artists. Influenced by his childhood in Soweto and his studies in Brussels at Performing Arts Research and Training Studios (PARTS), Maqoma finds his expression in movement, design and the spoken word. He has previously performed with Akram Khan in Steve Reich’s Variation for Vibes, Piano and Strings, and collaborated with other artists of his generation including Khan, Vincent Mantsoe and Faustin Linyekula. Maqoma continues to perform his critically acclaimed sold-out solo Beautiful Me in Europe and the USA and has successfully pioneered his company Vuyani Dance Theatre, based in Johannesburg, into a fast growing contemporary company in Africa.
