SIWELA GOES SQUARE (article first published : 2001-04-1)

Fresh from presenting a commissioned work at the FNB Vita Dance Umbrella in Johannesburg, Siwela Sonke Dance Theatre has launched into another intensive rehearsal period to present a full evening's programme of dance. The work is titled Neworks and is choreographed by Jay Pather, last year's FNB Award winner for Best Choreography.

Neworks is about storytelling with an edge,” says Jay Pather. “Contemporary dance drives us relentlessly and recklessly through the personal, compelling interiors of individual characters, drawing us in to the pathos, the humour, the beauty and the resilience of the human spirit. In line with the theme, the Company has chosen the intimate Square Space Theatre at the University of Natal to showcase this work. In an unusual but effective setting, audiences will be able to watch this full-length electric dance work in close proximity with the company of six dancers. The work is set to the complete collection of The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking by Roger Waters.”

Neworks runs from April 17 to 25 at 19h00. Tickets are R25 and R30 at the door. Booking enquiries on (031) 306-3827. There are several school performances and information is obtainable from the same number.
