FNB DANCE UMBRELLA 2008 (article first published : 2007-06-17)

The FNB Dance Umbrella will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2008 and the festival can be seen in various venues in Johannesburg from February 22 to March 15, 2008.

The Dance Umbrella will once again offer three weeks of new commissioned work from South African choreographers, international companies and various platforms for young artists. In 2008, the festival will focus on putting together a festival that will reflect both the past and the future and it is sure to be one of the most interesting events next year.

The FNB Dance Umbrella invites choreographers to enter the festival, which is a free and open platform for new work. It must however be noted that due to lack of time and space, once platforms are full, the entries will close.

The 20th festival will host platforms that vary from Youth/community groups to young up and coming choreographers; from commissioned South African artists to international dance companies and choreographers. As part of the 20th anniversary, master classes, debates and workshops will be held during the event.

The closing date for entries is September 7, 2007. Anyone interested in applying for the FNB Dance Umbrella 2008, must please contact Nonku at 011 482 5179 or Georgina at 011 482 4140.

No late entries will be accepted.
