Our name, Simba, is a Shona word from a vernacular language of the Bantu people of Zimbabwe and other parts of Africa, which translates as strength. The organisation draws from its name, its ethos and values of strength and oneness in numbers.
Figure-ring / New Voices
A Vestland Danseteater's first creation!
Figure-ring / New Voices is a debut work Figure-ring the state of dance, the role of Bergen based performing artists with immigrant backround. Their purpose and discovering the thing we were created to do - the gift, talent, and love that we’ve been given to carry and give away.
“Yesterday I had an equal voice, today I am lost. Maybe I was blinded by the neon sign of opportunity, failed to read the fine print that read: “assimilate or go back where you came from”.
“It’s an emptying feeling, to become foreign to a voice that was yours to begin with”. I am beginning to forget the taste of my own colorful voice and the language has become just a memory. - Simba
