• First Steps: The Children of Renco Mine

At the school of the Rio Tinto Gold Mine near Masvingo in Zimbabwe, children are taught dance as part of their school curriculum. Their bodies are totally engaged with the boys playing percussion whilst the girls take their first dance steps.

• Pas de deux, pas de trois: Bulawayo

In true Matabele tradition, the harmonising voices of a group of dancers singing a cappella rise from the veranda of a clinic as accompaniment to their dance steps that are reminiscent of Broadway in the thirties...

• Une entree digne : Isicathamiya in Durban

Under the auspices of SATMA, all night Zulu men's choir competitions are organised by Paul every Saturday evening in Durban. The a cappella voices of the men rise into singing marked by furtive isteps.

• A Best Dressed Man Competition

Where the men display their latest styles...

• Mtshongolo : The Shangaan of Kagiso

In Kagiso, a township west of Johannesburg, the Krugersdorp Stars, TK Swinyeleteni, partake in competitions every Sunday. The Shangaan rites of passage from birth to the age of adulthood are re-enacted over and again.
