SHIFTING RITES (article first published : 2001-03-19)

Over two weekends, dance lovers will be able to see the best of local contemporary dance with an exciting international element at the Playhouse Drama!

Shifting Rites offers two programmes. From March 22 to 24 March, the artists in Programme A are Moving into Dance Mophatong and the Akram Khan Company from the United Kingdom. Programme B, from March 29 to 31, features The Floating Outfit Project.

Akram Khan’s company is brought to South Africa with the assistance of the British Council. His compelling new dance language has attracted much attention in UK dance circles and critics describe his work as: "startlingly original and beautiful" (TimeOut).

Gauteng-based Moving Into Dance Performance Company was founded in 1978 and their repertory is chiefly concerned with the fusion of African movement, ritual and music with Western contemporary dance forms. In the past decade the company has performed to enthusiastic audiences across the globe including the African continent.

Boyzie Cekwana and Desiré Davids' The Floating Outfit Project has attracted a string of international engagements during the past year, with performances in Paris, Reunion Island, Benin, The Netherlands, Germany, Montpellier, culminating with a tour of Africa.

Booking via TicketWeb outlets nationwide or www.ticketweb.co.za or call 0861 400-500. Credit card bookings on (031) 369-9444.

These items can be seen in the Events Diary throughout the month.
