CITYSCAPES (article first published : 2002-03-16)

Video artists Greg Streak, Junaid Ahmed, Thando Mama, Virginia MacKenny and Storm Janse van Rensburg are hard at work recording the unique collaboration of dance and fine art titled Cityscapes. Devised by local choreographer Jay Pather, it is taking place in Durban at five sites every Saturday during March. Events have already taken place at North Beach Pier, the Workshop and 320 West Street, with the Albany Hotel and Musgrave Centre still to come. Each performance lasts about 15 minutes, will commence at 15h00 and will be performed three times: 15h00, 15h30 and 16h00

The video artists will interpret the five site-specific dance works on video. This different video footage will be installed with the five performances in various spaces in the Durban Art Gallery from Durban Art Gallery from April 4 to 7 at 19h30.

The works are conceived and directed by Jay Pather and choreographed in collaboration with the various dancers. The large cast of dancers emerge from a variety of companies: Siwela Sonke Dance Theatre, The Celtic Dance Company, Pravika's Kathak Kendra, The Fantastic Flying Fish Company, The Flatfoot Dance Company, the Our Hour Pansula Dance Company as well as dance students from the Technikon Natal.
