Back in 2009 we could both see the gap for a new cultural spectacle and we worked to produce our first major show INALA a Zulu ballet over 5 years before it premiered, selling out the largest theatre in Europe and marking the start of many more accolades and achievements since then… https://www.inala.co.uk/about-the-show
Establishing ourselves as a force to be reckoned with in the live entertainment landscape and as entrepreneurs we are not afraid of “firsts”. With INALA we have united for the first time The Royal Ballet and Rambert in a show. It’s the first time that South African traditions and western artistic dance disciplines have been fused in the way they have so successfully and it’s the first time that a female composer has worked with a legendary South African choral group.
INALA was a huge critical success; it was awarded a Grammy nomination for the music; it featured on the Royal Variety Performance seen by millions world-wide; it sold out at premiere venues internationally and most importantly it drew in 30-45% first time theatre attendees and delighted audiences with standing ovations most nights. Inala has been watched by over 100,000 people with a PR reach of over 45 million.
