STATE OF GRACE (article first published : 2002-08-15)

After performing the highly acclaimed CityScapes at several locations in and around Durban, Siwela Sonke Dance Theatre presents a work custom-made for the NSA Gallery. Commissioned by the JOMBA! Contemporary Dance Experience, the company will present State of Grace, a new work conceived and directed by Siwela Sonke’s artistic director Jay Pather.

State of Grace is especially designed to take place in several locations at the Gallery, combining intimate performance and the spectacular with the interiors and exteriors of the building. The work is a full-length piece dealing with notions of time and layers of presence and absence in contemporary South Africa. Moving from space to space, audiences will witness classical African and Indian Dance melding with contemporary performance and video installations to provide visual and aural stories.

Funded by the Centre for Creative Arts and the National Arts Council, State of Grace runs as part of the JOMBA! Contemporary Dance Experience in collaboration with The Centre for Creative Arts.

There will be performances on August 25 and 26 at 19h00. Tickets R20 (R10 students) available from the NSA Shop. More information from Jay Pather on 031 306-3827 or 083 290-2910 or email: jaypath@mweb.co.za
