THE DANCE JOURNEY (article first published : 2002-08-24)

The Dance Journey is a dance showcase conceived by Jerry Pooe with choreography by the members of his Eager Artists company.

The production deals with how everyday life influences dance, a story told through vibrant and moving dance with poetry linking the story. Described as compelling and diverse in its portrayal of the origin of traditional dances, it incorporates gumboot and cothoza and includes African Jazz Dance, pantsula, township, contemporary and ritual dance.

It is a call for an African Renaissance in celebration of South African life form from the days of the hunter, traveling to the years of technology and back to the call of an African drumbeat.

The Dance Journey is geared for schools and there will be two performances on August 29 and 30 at 19h00 in the BAT Centre main hall. More details from Smangele Mbeje on 031 305-1624 or e-mail info@eagerartists.co.za
