Short film for Sylvan Aztok.
A preparatory sketch exploring our ancient and intrinsic compulsion towards finding god.
In North Africa when the ritual dancers reach a fever, a moment of exultation,
those gathered in witness would chant the word 'allah' - a testimony to a glimpse of god.
Today we find this notion adapted in their northern neighbours of Spain,
where in a festival of celebration they will chant the word 'Ole'.
In their joy they too find a glimpse of god.
Since time began, all over the world, men and woman reach out earnest and open fingertips towards the unknown.
Our bodies are conduits through which hope, desire and fear are channeled and expressed.
We use our bodies for dance, exultation and ritual, we use our bodies to alter our world,
we use our bodies to pray, to dance, to fuck and to get fucked up. We use our bodies to love, to worship and to martyr. Self immolation and transcendence of self. exultation and agony. We use our bodies to find purpose.
The psychonauts and yogi's, the metalheads, pcp heads, acid heads, the dread heads, the dancers and the singer, the believer and the poet.
I salute you.

“I dance as if I have a gun to my head.” – Mada Sthembiso, (Shakers&Movers)
Street dance in South Africa is a complex, convoluted underworld; that, like most sub-cultures, exists as a sum of its participants.
In Mapetla, Soweto if you steal phones and hand bags you will not live long. The community will kill you. If you do a heist, they will tell the police you are not there. Prince tells me this as we walk back to Mada’s place from the shisa nyama. (an informal outdoor fire where you can buy some meat to cook and drink a beer.)
Prince is a pantsula. He used to be a tsotsi, a gangster, a thug. Today he walks his streets with pride; he is a pantsula dancer and a little bit famous. Tom London from Soweto’s Finest says, “When we dance we find purpose with our bodies”. Prince, strolling down the dusty street with his fluid movement, a little trouble in his hat and a slight swagger, is perhaps the embodiment of that sentiment.
When he dances on the street corner with Mada; the kids, the tsotsi’s, the mama’s, the unemployed and the hustlers all stop to watch him. I always wonder how it must feel to have that power residing right inside you. No props, no burning hoops – nothing.
Whatever this dance thing is. It is beautiful, part circus/part soul. No matter the context or style. We all ultimately dance for an audience of one.
