DANCE UMBRELLA ENTRIES (article first published : 2000-09-20)

The 13th FNB Vita Dance Umbrella will take place at The Wits Theatre in Braamfontein and the Dance Factory in Johannesburg from February 23 to March 17, 2001.

This annual feast of contemporary choreography and dance offers a free and open platform for original, contemporary choreography and dance. It hosts work from across Southern Africa and from as far afield as Europe, the Middle East and the USA. With its focus on original work, the FNB Vita Dance Umbrella is the choreographer’s festival - an opportunity to explore and develop all emergent dance idioms.

Highlights in the 2000 season included a series of new works by choreographers who were commissioned by FNB Vita, in addition to the annual Young Choreographers Grants. This will again be repeated for the Dance Umbrella 2001.

The Dance Umbrella 2001 schedule will include a Main, New Moves, Fringe and Stepping Stones programmes. Choreographers who do not present work regularly in performance venues and who want their work to be considered for the New Moves or Fringe sections of the festival should inform the organizers so that a suitable time to watch their work in rehearsal can be arranged. Other choreographers who wish to be considered for the Main Programme must supply a video of their work on submission of their entry form.

The closing date for entries is November 17, 2000. Further details from Georgina Thomson on (011) 442-8435.
