FNB DANCE UMBRELLA 2005 (article first published : 2005-02-11)

The 17th FNB Dance Umbrella runs from February 13 to March 19, 2005, at several venues in Johannesburg. These include The Wits Theatre, Jorissen Street, Braamfontein; The Dance Factory, Newtown Precinct, The Fitzgerald Square, Newtown and Constitutional Hill in Braamfontein.

The FNB Dance Umbrella 2005 festival again promises to be a highlight on all dance-loversí calendars. It will feature 19 programmes of work representative of all forms of contemporary choreography and dance in this country. Included in the FNB Dance Umbrella 2005, are new works by 10 commissioned South African choreographers and four international companies.

The Belgian company Hush, Hush, Hush who were to present ID Please on March 16 & 17 have had to cancel as they were not able to raise the funds for the tour.

Due to this unforeseen change in the programme, FNB Dance Umbrella management has changed the performance dates of Programme 17 at The Wits Downstairs Theatre to March 16 and 17 at 20h00. This programme features ELU with Munk/Punk; Dancing Inside Out by Steven Cohen and So Is ĎN Os Gemaak by Peter van Heerden.

The final Programme 19 takes place at The Wits Theatre on March 18 and 19 at 19h30. It will feature works from the two Phillip Stein Grant recipients: Athena Mazarakis and Hlengiwe Lushaba as well as Unknown Citizens by Mdu Mtshali. The fourth choreographer in this programme is Tebby Ramasike who has been resident in Europe for the past 10 years and he makes his comeback to this country with a work entitled If You Canít Chain My Soul, Then Chain The World.

Tickets range from R25 to R50 and are available at the door or booked at Computicket. Concessions/block bookings and subscription tickets are available.
