Closing Night

Head along to the HeART hub and shake it with members of Soukouss Internationale for an authentic, fun and energetic introduction to Congolese soukouss dance. ‘Soukouss’, by the way, means ‘shake it’. It’s a bootyful thing. Natyalaya School of Dance then invite you to experience the magical world of the traditional Indian dance Bharatnatyam. Soukousse Internationale will then return to the stage to showcases the utter infectiousness of high-energy African song and dance. 

REAF2022 Closing Night is sponsored by Fortescue Metals Group.
