Best Answer

The painting shows a scene from the township life. On Sundays Zulu dancers would put up a tent and it cost 6 pence for the average person to watch them dance. Most people did not have the money to go inside and would hang around outside with curiosity. The theme reflects Gerald Sekoto's life, his vision of Africa which is different to the way a European would have seen the subject.
