“It’s not like you just step onto stage and do it. You have to work. You have to sweat.”


This documentary follows the young South African dancer Dane Hurst as he rehearses for a solo performance of USIZI. The film explores both his passion and intense physical and mental dedication as he pushes his body to the limit. The film also offers a glimpse into the deeply personal circumstances of his cultural heritage that helped forge his unerring vision.
