KZN DANCELINK SYMPOSIUM (article first published : 2006-08-22)

KZN DanceLink is to hold a symposium on Indigenous Dance in the Drama and Performance Studies Programme building on the Howard College Campus, University of KwaZulu-Natal, on September 16

The main focus will be on the needs of indigenous dance in KZN, and specifically what contribution KZN DanceLink can make to its promotion and preservation.

The agenda will include definitions and distinctions: traditional, rural, classical, folk, ritual, ceremonial, spiritual, functional, customary, origins.

Questions will be debated such as When is it art?; When is it education?; When is it entertainment?; Is it static?; Evolving?; Can one create indigenous dance now?

Other topics to be considered are whether indigenous dance is for the performers, or for the spectators? Is it secret or can it be shared and does it belong to a place, to a group or to part of a new inclusive South Africa?

Entrance is free and lunch will be provided.

The Indigenous Dance symposium will run from 10h00 to 15h00.Entrance is by pre-booking only through Lynn Maree on 031 206 1696 or fax 031 205 0568 or email lynnelal@iafrica.com
