DURBAN COMPANIES FOR UMBRELLA (article first published : 2001-03-4)

KZN choreographers and dance companies appear at the 13th FNB Vita Dance Umbrella runs until March 17 at the Wits Theatre in Braamfontein and The Dance Factory at the Newtown Precinct in Johannesburg.

This annual festival of contemporary choreography is justifiably considered a highlight on the calendar of all dance-lovers. The line-up features 16 programmes of work that range from traditional African dance to international dance companies. Also included in Dance Umbrella 2001 are new works by nine commissioned choreographers.

Commissioned choreographer David Gouldie from Durbanís Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company presents a collaborative piece with Sibikwa Community Theatre and Tracey Human in Programme Seven at The Wits Theatre on March 6 and 8.

Programme Nine on March 10 and 11 at The Wits Theatre, features a new commissioned work by Durbanís Jay Pather from Siwela Sonke Dance Company in Laws of Recall as well as another work of his that premiered at the FNB Vita /JOMBA! Festival 2000.

All performances, unless stated otherwise, start at 19h30. Tickets R40 at the door or through Computicket (R28 for students, pensioners or block bookings of 10 or more and R32 for bookings for three or more programmes).

The FNB Vita Dance Umbrella 2001 has received additional funding from Business Arts South Africa, the French Institute, the British Council, Pro-Helvetia and The Consul of Finland.
