Cargo is the seventh in a series of inspired collaborations between two of South Africa's most exciting movement theatre companies, Jazzart Dance Theatre and Magnet Theatre. It uses performance to re-imagine the archive of slavery in the Cape, bringing it to the attention of a wider audience while linking the past to our present reality.

Both companies are renowned for their powerful, poignant work and ability to destroy clichés and social stereotypes through the language of physical movement and expression.

"The Jazzart/Magnet Theatre alliance has been responsible for some of the best movement theatre this country has ever seen."
Andrew Gilder, Cape Times
