SBONAKALISO AT NEW DANCE (article first published : 2006-07-22)

The New Dance Festival will be presented at The Wits Theatre and The Dance Factory in Johannesburg from August 9 to 19, 2006. New Dance is a platform that was created three years ago to make connections within Africa.

Durban-based artist Sbonakaliso Ndaba is to present a work titled Holes in the Heart on August 16 and 17 at 20h00. Set in an informal settlement, the work traces a young girl’s journey to womanhood and the choices she makes along the way- showing how her decisions are influenced by her experiences as well as situations she witnesses.

New Dance 2006 presents works from companies in Africa that include Gaara Company from Kenya and a collaborative work from Kettley Noel: Mali and Augusto Cuvilas: Mozambique. South Africa will be well represented by Gregory Maqoma, Sifiso Kweyama, Sbonakaliso Ndaba and Portia Mashigo as well as a programme of young choreographers who all participated in a Young Choreographers Residency programme during the FNB Dance Umbrella 2006.

Tickets between R40 and R65, excluding Computicket service charge. Concessions are available for students, block bookings of 10, pensioners PAWE and PANSA members.

New Dance has been made possible with assistance from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, the National Arts Council, AFAA, The French Institute of South Africa, Pro Helvetia and Africalia.
