GRASS GARDENS RETURNS (article first published : 2003-02-21)

Grass Gardens is a fascinating collaboration between the innovative Durban acoustic band Landscape Prayers and watershed contemporary dance company, Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company. After its premiere in Durban in February, it returns to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre in April due to overwhelming public demand. (See review in Dance)

Grass Gardens is a spectacular fusion with dancers from FFFDC and music from Landscape Prayers with concept and choreography by David Gouldie. The work is an exciting, interactive spectacle exploring the cascading imagery seen in the landscapes of KZN,” says FFFDC director, Mark Hawkins.

FFFDC and Landscape Prayers have been conceptualising and planning this project over a long period. The production sees the musicians on stage moving among the dancers and becoming part of the whole imagery. Grass Gardens will incorporate music from Landscape Prayers’ past three albums as well as new material and compositions that has been prepared especially for this season.

Grass Gardens also features lighting design by the award-winning Michael Broderick and innovative costumes by Ebrahim Medell. The show has its return season at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from April 10 to 12. Book at Computicket on 011 340 8000/083 915 8000. For queries contact 031 209 0142.
