DANCE SHONGOLOLO (article first published : 1999-09-29)

Anyone who is interested in contemporary dance and challenging the barriers of the disciplines of movement and dance should stand by for full-on exposure to interesting and innovative choreography in October with FNB Vita Dance Shongololo. Durbanís annual showcase of daring, challenging and new dance,Dance Shongololo, takes place in the Playhouse Drama Theatre from October 18 to 24.

"The FNB Vita Dance Shongololo is a showcase of a variety of dance idioms demonstrating differing technical styles and, inevitably, varying levels of choreography and of performance. The Shongololo is open to all choreographers whether new or established who wish to present new work on a professional stage. The focus is on original contemporary choreography," said FNB Vita's Georgina Thomson.

Two guest companies will also be featured at this year's FNB Vita Dance Shongololo. Bopa Danco Company, under the artistic direction of David Matamela, will perform an astounding piece titled TSEPO on October 22 and 23. On October 21 and 23, Moeketsi Koena, recently returned from Brussels, will perform an untitled solo piece which was the highlight of the FNB Vita Dance Umbrella in Gauteng earlier this year.

FNB Vita Dance Shongololo offers both Main and Fringe programmes. The Main will be staged in the evenings for which audiences buy tickets while the Fringe offers free performances during the day on the final Sunday. More details from (031) 202-9093.
