DANCE UMBRELLA ENTRIES (article first published : 2001-09-25)

The FNB Vita Dance Umbrella 2002 will be presented at the Wits Theatre and Dance Factory in Johannesburg from February 20 to March 16, 2002. This is an annual highlight of contemporary choreography and dance on the Johannesburg arts calendar.

Dance Umbrella offers a free and open platform for original contemporary choreography and dance and is open to anyone who wants to present a new work: from community-based groups to international companies: they all have a place in this festival. The presenters also welcome proposals for longer works, to be considered.

In the last few years, Dance Umbrella has hosted work from across Southern Africa, and from afar field as Europe and the USA. It focuses on original work, a choreographer’s festival that offers an opportunity to explore and develop all emergent dance idioms.

The FNB Vita Dance Umbrella has again commissioned a number of choreographers to premiere a work. These include Boyzie Cekwana, Gregory Maqoma, Lean Coetzer, Christopher Kindo, Robyn Orlin and Shannell Winlock. Durban-based Sbonakaliso Ndaba is among the recipients of the Young Choreographers Grants for 2002 alongside Timothy le Roux.

More details from Georgina, Samantha or Tammy on (011) 442-8435 or 082 884-1480.
