IMBUMBA 2002 (article first published : 2002-01-23)

Imbumba (Dance for Everyone: we bond as one) is produced by KZN Dance Link, the umbrella body representing dance in KZN. The event celebrates its third birthday with Imbumba 2002, an evening of dance at the International Convention Centre on February 10 at 14h30. This exciting and varied production celebrates the wealth of dance talent that KZN has to offer

Taking part in the event will be some of the cream of Durban's dance talent including organisations such as: Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company; Surialanga Dance Company; Phenduka Dance Theatre; Eric Shabalala's Shwibeka Dance Project; Uyaba Dance Company; Celtic Dance Company; Hlanganani Traditional Orchestra; Kala-Darshan, and Nateshwar Dance Academy.

Imbumba 2002 offers something for everyone, celebrating the rich diversity of dance forms practised in KZN such as Bharatha Natyam, Irish dancing, traditional and contemporary African dance, ballroom dancing, Kathak and ballet.

"It is always exciting to see such an array of quality dance on one stage," says KZN Dance Link chairperson, Lynn Maree. "This afternoon provides a wonderful showcase of the dance talent that exists in this province – even better than that of last year, when we sold out and had to turn people away at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre”.

The occasion will also showcase the abilities of the young dancers from God's Golden Acre: Khayelihle, at Cato Ridge. These young people are part of a rural outreach project for children affected by HIV and AIDS. They have been taught by KZN Dance Link members in Dance Link’s HIV/Aids Project. Weekly classes in every imaginable dance genre, including creative work, have resulted in five dance works from Surialanga Dance Company, Ceaser Mkhize, Eric Shabalala, Thokazani Makhoba and Sibusiso Madlala. These pieces will be worked into a full-scale production that will tour England later in 2002.

Sunday's show starts at 14h30. Tickets available from the door at the ICC or by phoning Peter Taylor on (031) 209 0142. Tickets R25 (R15 pensioners and people under 16).
