AWARDS FOR SBO AND ONDINE (article first published : 2004-09-14)

This year's 8th Women's Arts Festival, held at The Playhouse, saw the presentation of three awards to outstanding women during the Festival's opening gala concert.

For the first time at the Festival, awards were presented in the categories of Woman in Business, Woman in the Arts, and Woman of the Community. Each award paid tribute to a woman who has achieved notable success in her own field and has also made a significant difference in her community, inspiring others to do the same. The women selected have been in service for at least the past ten years, and are respected as pioneers in their fields.

Sbonakaliso Ndaba and Ondine Bello shared the award for Women in the Arts.

Award-winning choreographer Sbonakaliso Ndaba has made her mark on the South Afircan dance scene. Co-Artistic Director of Penduka Dance Theatre, she has become known for her ground-breaking work as dance-maker "who redefines dance language as a medium that can heal our wounds by dissecting our ways of thinking".

Ondine Bello is well-known in KZN dance circles, not only as a distinguished dance practitioner herself but for her ongoing dedication to the Penduka Dance Theatre. She is currently the company's administrator, also serving as a company teacher and workshop facilitator.

The other award recipients were Nomusa Dube (Women in Business); Sabbath Mlambo (Women of the Community).
