Featuring a variety of singing, dancing and speaking, “Senzenina” examines racial segregation and apartheid in South Africa plus the country’s battle toward freedom.Likewise, the performance intends to relate these past events of injustice to current incidents of inequality that the black community in the United States faces today.“I try to bring reality and what is happening now to what we are remembering,” said Jason Aryeh, the director and choreographer of the show.In order to make history relevant today, the production expands upon the meaning of “Senzenina”, “What have we done?” and asks, what can we do now?Throughout the black South Africans’ struggle toward equality, these individuals would constantly ask themselves, what have we done? Addressing this question in a new context and time period, Aryeh said he hopes that the audience members will ask themselves what they can do now to make permanent strides toward freedom and creating a more unified community.
