William Kentridge Performance | Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts The Head & the Load

December 1, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Boasting an international cast of singers, dancers, actors and musicians, acclaimed South African artist William Kentridge’s The Head & the Load shines a light on the nearly 2 million African porters and carriers who served German, French and British forces during World War I in Africa. The New York Times described the show as ‘a fiercely beautiful historical pageant of music, movement and shadow play that reanimates these lost African combatants.’

Patrons can purchase tickets to the performance which runs December 1-3 via arshtcenter.org, or the Arsht Center Box Office phone at 305.949.6722.

Ten complimentary tickets will be made available by lottery. Please visit this page on November 1st, 2022 for reservation information.
