FNB DANCE UMBRELLA 2006 WORKSHOPS (article first published : 2006-02-17)

The FNB Dance Umbrella 2006 is hosting a Young Choreographers Residency programme that will take place during the festival from March 1 to 7. Funded by the National Arts Council and the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, this programme aims to give young artists an opportunity to discover new ways of creating.

The choreographers participating in the residency programme include Linda Lee Mhlongo, Ivan Teme, Gustin Makgadelisa, Lucky Ratlaghane, Mpho Masilela, Funeka Ramarula, Zoey Lapinsky, Lucky Kele, Obed Setshabi, Jeaneatte Mokhele, Nokulunga Vilakazi and KZNís Charmaine Mpofu. They were selected as young artists who have already created a body of work with promise.

Artistically directed by Sifiso Kweyama, the main facilitators of the residency programme are South African Sello Pesa and Holland-based Emio Greco. France based artist Sophiatou Kossoko will also be teaching the group.

The residency will focus on challenging the artists to try new ways of creating work as well as watching the FNB Dance Umbrella programmes and general networking with their peers.

The residency will take place at the Dance Factory, Newtown. For further information contact 011 482 4140, 011 482 5179 or 011 482 5615 or e-mail danceumbrella@artslink.co.za
