FINTASTIC (article first published : 2000-02-12)

For too long the Open Air Theatre, which forms part of the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre complex at the University of Natal, has been under-utilised. This is about to change with what, hopefully, may be the beginning of an ongoing series of music, dance and fashion shows. Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company is to stage Fintastic, a short season of alfresco dance, music and fashion on February 23 and 25 as well as on March 1, 3 and 4 at 19h30.

Live music will be supplied by one of Durbanís most popular bands, Trevor Harperís Tin Jam, as well as the Tekweni String Quartet. Trendsetting Durban Designer Emporium will collaborate with FFFDC to create stunning fashion silhouettes for the dancers.

Recently returned from a highly successful tour to India, FFFDC will perform new works by artistic director Mark Hawkins and resident choreographer David Gouldie. Audience members are invited to bring a picnic basket, a bottle of wine and a blanket to sit on in the park adjoining the Open Air Theatre from 18h00. The show itself starts at 19h30 and food and wine will also be sold by upmarket vendors. Tickets R30 (R25 pensioners and students, R15 for scholars and children). Book at Computicket.

Special corporate block booking discounts are available at R5 off the ticket price for block bookings (20 or more) and picnic catering can be provided at R35 per head excluding wine, by Bean Bag Bohemia. More details from Peter Taylor on (031) 209-0142.
