Deliverance in Africa in conjunction with Soweto Street Beat, and International photographer Calvin Evans are scheduled to present “Zulu Kingdom” and Lion Heart Gallery Exhibition,  a live South African dance, and musical production produced by the only professional South African dance, and theater company in the U.S. In addition to an evening filled with dance, live music, and brilliant traditional African designs, and a film screening presented by Deliverance in Africa, Atlanta’s Calvin Lebu Evans will debut the “Lion Heart” exhibition featuring life-sized original gallery prints and portraits that capture the spirit and soul of South Africa. The evening is sure to be both amazing and unforgettable.

“It’s a blessing for us to bring this production to Atlanta. The music, dance and the costumes are breathtakingly beautiful. This collaboration with Soweto Street Beat and Deliverance in Africa has resulted in an evening that will guarantee a cultural appreciation for South Africa,” says Evans.

After a recent missions trip to South Africa, Evans was determined to help bring the beautiful culture of South Africa to his hometown of Atlanta.

“Atlanta is quickly becoming a cultural mecca that celebrates art, and, of course, music. It was only right to bring this exhibition to Atlanta first,” he says of the production that will tour through 25 states.

Known for their electrifying performances of interactive dance filled with exhilarating music, and unique costumes, the Soweto Street Beat Dance Theatre Company is the only one of its kind in the United States. Soweto Street Beat performed the acclaimed “Zulu Kingdom” at Leadercast 2015 honoring Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the late President Nelson Mandela, which was broadcast in 70 countries around the world.

The “Zulu Kingdom” and “Lion Heart” exhibition is scheduled for March 26, 2016, at 6 p.m.

“We hope that entire families will come learn more about the South African culture which may have very strong ties, and importance to their own. We want to see children, grandparents, loved ones, and friends all celebrating the triumph, and beauty of the human spirit. The human spirit has no boundaries. No one is excluded. We are all one,” Evans says.
