DANCE! AFRICA DANCE! (article first published : 2007-09-28)

Culturesfrance and Association Ness el Fen are calling for applications for the special edition of Danse L’afrique Danse the 7th Choreographic encounters of the Africa and Indian Ocean Region that will take place from May 1 to 10, 2008, in Tunis, Tunisia. The competition is aimed at promoting African dancers and choreographers and providing access to the international stage for budding dance professionals.

The competition has two types of entries: solo piece (interpreted by the choreographer) or a joint piece (presented by the choreographer).

Syhem Belkhodja, the Sybel Ballet Theatre artistic director and choreographer, will chair the artistic committee that will sit in Paris in December to select the winning entries. The committee will be looking for innovation and originality in the choreography entries. They will also assess how choreographers use the theatrical space, the quality and force of their interpretation, whether the music they use is suited to the dance (be it live or recorded) and also their development of the changing choreographic language. Costumes, hair styles and make-up will also be assessed. These will be judged from the videos/DVDs of staged shows that applicants are expected to submit in their application packs.

The French Institute will receive hard copies of the applications in South Africa. Applicants must also send electronic copies of the applications to nesselfen@gnet.tn, danseafriquedance@culturesfrance.com

Applications should be sent on or before November 30 and be clearly marked Dance Competition - The Director, French Institute of South Africa, 66 Margaret Mcingana Street, PO. Box 542, Newtown Precint, Johannesburg, 2113. For more information contact comm.culture@ifas.org.za or visit www.ifas.org.za/culture
