Part of the Virtual National Arts Festival, The Cosmic Egg is a virtual reality traditional dance theatre sci-fi musical film from Botswana.
The Cosmic Egg tells the story of an unusual ostrich egg hunt that takes hunters through an unexpected journey from the past to a musical future. The story is told through Tswana, San and contemporary dances, as well as traditional songs performed alongside traditional instrumentation. The performance is accompanied by a soundtrack comprised of original compositions and narrated opera in Setswana by Dr Leloba Molema, subtitled in English.
The film is performed by New Moon, a collective of artists directed by multi-media artist Moratiwa Molema. New Moon has performed at the Hugh Masekela Heritage Festival in Soweto and at corporate events, art galleries and at theatre festivals in Botswana.
The National Arts Festival is going virtual for its 46th edition, pushing for its audience to support local talent, musicians and artists.
