Dancing in the Dust
Kasigo Lesego Molope
|It is the
turbulent 1980s in apartheid South Africa, when even the
ordinary life is full of danger and uncertainty. What will
tomorrow bring? Tihelo, a thirteen-year-old girl, lives with
her older sister Keitumetse and their mother Kgomotso.
Kgomotso works as a maid for a white household in the city
and has to depend on the neighbours to keep an eye on the
girls; one day she does not come home.
Dancing in the Dust is a moving story of growing up in a fearful, oppressive society, where the only comfort for the young is dream and romance, and the only free option that of rebellion.
“. . . cinematic in clarity . . . Molope makes her reader see and understand . . . feel the enormity of apartheid’s atrocity.”
