BRITAIN AND SOUTH AFRICA DANCING (article first published : 1999-11-17)

The Britain and South Africa Dancing project saw successful collaborations taking place this year throughout South Africa. KZN events included a series of workshops by Sarah Whatley in Durban with the Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company and the Playhouse Project.

Mark Hawkins and David Gouldie of the Durban-based Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company visited London to discuss collaborations between FFFDC and UK choreographers. Five members of the London-based Bullies Ballerinas give workshops and stunning performances in Durban during the Commonwealth Head of Government Meeting (CHOGM) and British Council Director-General David Green unveiled a new portable dance floor sponsored by the British Council at the BAT Centre.

This year also marked Year Four of Step Africa!, a collaboration between Durbanís Soweto Dance Theatre, Alpha Phi Alpha from Washington DC and United Kingdom artists H Patten, Jonzi D and Khadijatou Silcott-Fraser.

Projects planned for the year 2000 include workshops in Durban for the Rio Tinto/Richards Bay Mineral Company Scholarship to the London Contemporary Dance School organised in association with Dance Alliance and the Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company. Also on the cards is a two week tour by the Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company with performances at the Jomba Festival, Durban, the Arts Alive Festival, Johannesburg and the Baxter Theatre, Cape Town, supported by an extensive programme of workshops and study days.
