FNB DANCE UMBRELLA 2007 (article first published : 2006-07-21)

The FNB Dance Umbrella 2007 takes place in various venues in Johannesburg from February 23 to March 17, 2007. The Dance Umbrella schedule will include the Stepping Stones programme which focuses on youth and community dance groups, as well as artists who want to try their hand at choreography. There will be selected programmes that will feature choreographers who have gone through a developmental process that includes Dance Umbrella workshops and those who have been producing work for about two years.

The Main Platform will feature new commissioned work from South African artists and international companies/choreographers.

The two recipients of the Phillip Stein Grants 2006 are Durban-based Mdu Mtshali and Constance Kau from Johannesburg, will premiere new works during the FNB Dance Umbrella 2007.

The FNB Dance Umbrella 2007 is offering a grant of R20,000 to an established choreographer who has been presenting contemporary work for at least the past five years. The grant has been created to give choreographers an opportunity to obtain funding towards the creation of a new work and it must have the first performance at the FNB Dance Umbrella 2007. The Grant is in addition to the free theatre and technical back-up that usually applies to entrants for the FNB Dance Umbrella.

Choreographers interested in presenting a work for the FNB Dance Umbrella 2007, should call Georgina Thomson, Sifiso Kweyama or Charmaine Monareng on 011 482 4140 or 011 482 5179 or e-mail georgina@artslink.co.za or danceumbrella@artslink.co.za

Closing date for entries is September 15, 2006.
