UYABA FOR RED EYE @RT (article first published : 2001-02-16)

Thokozani Makhoba’s Uyaba Dance Company, which recently received much interest for their excellent piece at KZN Dance Link’s Imbumba, will perform at the Durban Art Gallery’s Red Eye @rt evening on March 2 from 18h00.

Thokozani has created a new piece for the occasion which is titled At the Bus Stop and is a mix of traditional, kwaito and reggae styles. The highly disciplined Uyaba Dance Company comprises 14 youngsters between the ages of 12 to 18. They are able to rehearse at the Ubuhle High Primary School in Kwa-Mashu through the generosity of the principal and the school board.

One of the problems facing community arts groups these days is a lack of rehearsal venues. Maybe more principals should take a leaf out of Ubuhle’s book and offer a room on school premises after school hours.

As one of the members of Welcome Msomi’s Umabatha, Thokozani leaves in April with for an international tour.
