A stunning and vibrant collection of ten traditional dances from across the African continent, reveals an emotive and spiritual journey by Adzido. Nana Yaa Asantewaa was a woman of exceptional bravery who, in March 1900, raised and led an army of thousands against the British colonial forces in Ghana and their efforts to seize the Golden Stool, the Asante nation's spiritual symbol of unity and sovereignty. After defeat in 1901, she was exiled to the Seychelles where she spent two decades until her death in October 1921. Yaa Asantewaa's war was the last major war in Africa to be led by a woman. This is the first ever production in homage to Nana Yaa Asantewaa, and brings together multiple art forms, telling the story of her extraordinary battle against the British and subsequent exile.
