South African composer and saxophonist Steve Dyer brings Visions of Ubuntu to Lincoln Center for an evening of remembrance and jubilant celebration of the indomitable human spirit. Propelled by the courage of South Africa's indigenous youth, June of 1976 marked a pivotal point in the national uprising against apartheid. Student revolutionaries protesting against Afrikaans as the medium of instruction in the classroom were met with deadly force by soldiers of the apartheid regime. Intergenerational leaders of the South African freedom struggle (including Mandela, Sobukwe, Tambo, and Biko) visualized a country where all people could live in harmony, drawing strength and inspiration from the traditional value system of ubuntu, embodying collectivism, harmony, and restorative justice. Nearly 50 years since the June 16 uprising and after 30 years of South African democracy, join us in recognizing ubuntu as a “life-philosophy concept" with the capacity to heal our troubled world.

Run time: approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes
