KENNETH KVARNSTRÖM TO DURBAN (article first published : 1999-09-4)

The Nordic-South African cultural exchange programme, Shuttle 99 in association with the Playhouse Company is bringing top Finnish choreographer Kenneth Kvarnström and his company to the Playhouse Drama Theatre on September 29 and 30. They will present 325,4KG, Kenneth Kvarnström’s latest cutting edge work which premiered in April this year at Dansens Hus in Stockholm, Sweden. In it, he combines the technical skill and strong personalities of four of Finland and Sweden’s best dancers with set design or “objects” by artist Carouschka, lighting design by Mario Ros and the music of Swedish group Woosapower and Bach.

South African dance company, the Floating Outfit Project (FOP) has been invited to present Boyzie Cekwana’s ground-breaking work Rona alongside 325,4KG, a collaboration which is bound to give Durban audiences a major treat of visual and kinetic, mind-blowing, world-class theatre. Rona (meaning “us” in Sotho) is described as a work that “ritualistically unfurls in a space and time which is entirely its own.” In addition to the recorded musical collaboration of Hughs de Courson and Pierre Akendegue entitled Lambarena – Bach to Africa, Rona now includes live musical accompaniment by one of South Africa’s most talented musicians, Thabani Sibisi. Durban audiences will know him from his work with Siwela Sonke Dance Theatre.

Tickets are R32 and R28 through Computicket or www.computicket.com or Dial-a-Seat on (031) 369-9444 or Ticketline (a/h) on (031) 304-2753. There are limited discount tickets for students and pensioners.
