Colonisation, history and genocide are captured in a dance piece Sold! created by Standard Bank Young Artist Winner for Dance, Themba Mbuli. This piece follows the journey of twenty skulls of German genocide victims back to Namibia, their home. It specifically focuses on four female skulls to retell history, colonisation and genocide through the experiences and the gaze of women.
