GOULDIE TO STUDY (article first published : 2001-02-17)

David Gouldie, award-winning resident choreographer of Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company, is to take a sabbatical for two years to study for an Honours degree in Dance Studies at the University of Natal, Durban.

“I need to re-invent my space creatively and also get a qualification. In terms of my profession and experience, the University has kindly waived the preceding three years of study,” explains David who received his earlier training at the Art, Ballet, Music and Drama School in Pretoria, studying under one of South Africa’s most well-known ballet figures Ken Yeatman.

“It’s about being able to articulate my ideas better and provide food for the soul. Also not to have to reflect about getting bums on seats and survive but to get more experimental. I will probably continue to work for Fantastic Flying Fish but Varsity will be the number one priority.”

David is also looking forward to helping with teaching in the movement department. “I enjoy teaching. When Sharon Angove was away from the Technikon Natal, I stood in for her. It was very exciting to see the seeds that you sow in terms of creative expression being reaped effectively.”
