GRAHAMSTOWN - DANCE (article first published : 1999-07-5)

With the assistance of the National Arts Council, the Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company will present four works at the 1999 Standard Bank National Arts Festival in Grahamstown.

The programme includes two works by the FFFDC’s resident choreographer David Gouldie. The first is i never sang for my mother set to music by Iva Bittova and costumed by Francois Vedemme and En Pointč. Dancers are Dean Bennewith, Cheryl Burger, Manie Irving, Angela Lardant, Nicole McCreedy and Catherine Royce. The other work is When the shadows of your past have finally faded, set to an original score by Izan Greyling and Gavin Bryars. The costumes have been designed by Tamlyn Martin and Liza du Plessis and the work is performed by Cheryl Burger, Mary-Ann de Wet, Nicole McCreedy and Catherine Royce. It is a collaborative work between Gouldie and Tamlyn Martin in an attempt to scrutinise and re(dis)cover the position of artists in a transforming society and address the notion of dislocation, disarmament and disfunction. It also focuses on the disharmony of femininity which has been damaged but still brave.

Kenshin is an earlier work (1992) by the FFFDC’s artistic director Mark Hawkins set to a commissioned score by David Smith and played by Andreas Dauth and Evelien Hagen with students from the music department of the University of Natal Durban. The costumes have been designed by Barry Armitage and the work will be performed by Mary-Ann de Wet with Cheryl Burger and Catherine Royce.

Jeannette Ginslov originally choreographed Walking Against the Wind for her DNA Dance Theatre, and for the South African platform of Rencontres Choreographiques Internationales de Seines-Saint-Denis, and won the national final competition. Inspired by Athol Fugard’s Boesman and Lena it was originally funded by the NAC and BASA. Appearing in the FFFDC production will be Dean Bennewith, Cheryl Burger, Manie Irving and Catherine Royce. Walking against the Wind is set to Das Orchestrion by Eisturzende Neubaten and God Music by George Crumb performed by Kevin Volans and the 5th String Quartet with voice-over by Illonge Frege. Sound is provided by Leon Erasmus of Mega Music
