Infecting The City “Dark Cell”

Music, Sound

The mind is the worst prison that any man can ever be in.

Drawing inspiration and metaphors from imagery of prisoners on Robben Island, Dark Cell probes mental freedom and self-imposed restrictions. While celebrating and commemorating South African history, Mbuli’s piece also  mirrors contemporary society.
