JUANITA FINESTONE FOR FIRST PHYSICAL (article first published : 2003-04-17)

The First Physical Theatre Company has announced the appointment of Juanita Finestone as Assistant Artistic Director. Founded ten years ago by Professor Gary Gordon, First Physical has grown from a student company to a fully-fledged professional body funded by the National Arts Council and the National Lottery.

Juanita Finestone is the longest-standing member of the company having taught, performed and choreographed for First Physical since 1993. She was also recently appointed as lecturer in the Rhodes University Drama Department and sits on the national Standards Generating Body (SGB) for dance.

With an Honours degree (cum laude) and a Masters degree (cum laude) in dance and theatre studies from Rhodes University, her work has been published in the South African Theatre Journal and the international journal Contemporary Theatre Review. She has written extensively for First Physical's manuals in physical theatre as well as the CD-Rom, The Art of Physical Intelligence.

Her latest collaboration with Gary Gordon in the choreography of This beautiful house is un-made has short seasons at the Port Elizabeth Opera House (April 24-26) and at the East London Guild Theatre (May 6-8).
