Choreographic collaboration creates charisma at Jomba!
The work is choreographed by South African Sonia Radebe and Canadian Jennifer Dallas and performed by the Moving into Dance Mophatong (MIDM) Company.
“Ngizwise” (a Zulu word meaning let me taste/help me listen) is the culmination of six weeks of gently crafting and honing the dancers’ artistic voices to develop a thought-provoking dance about four men revealing intimate stories of the past and projections for the future.
The hour-long performance sheds light on subjects of community, power, individuality and masculinity in a globalised modern society in a fun yet confrontational manner.
MIDM Company dancers performing Ngizwise are Oscar Buthelezi, Teboho Gilbert Letele, Sunnboy Motau and Muzi Shili. Teboho Letele is also taking charge of the music.
Nadia Virasamy CEO of MIDM said “Ngizwise is a wonderful, welcome addition to MIDM Company’s repertoire”, while Sylvia ‘Magogo’ Glasser MIDM founder said “This beautifully crafted, imaginative work is full of delightful and evocative surprises”.
Radebe and Dallas’s work will be performed at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre as part of the 16th Jomba! Contemporary Dance Experience on 3rd September. For more info go to www.cca.ukzn.ac.za or like the Jomba Facebook Page.
JOMBA! Contemporary Dance Experience is organised by the Centre for Creative Arts (UKZN) with valuable support from the eThekwini Municipality.
