Free Dance Workshops at 24th JOMBA! Contemporary Dance Experience
Three free open contemporary dance workshops will be held during the 24th JOMBA! Contemporary Dance Experience, hosted by the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Centre for Creative Arts which takes place from 30 August to 11 September 2022.
Wednesday 31 August from 4 – 5.30pm
Nelisiwe Xaba (SA) and Marie-Caroline Hominal (Switzerland) will experiment with movements based on their work Hominal / Xaba which opens the Festival and also share their artistic practices.
Wednesday 7 September from 4 – 5.30pm
Edna Jaime (Mozambique) will focus on improvisation techniques and the use of emotional energies to find movements and rhythmic coordination heavily influenced by the traditional dances of Mozambique.
Saturday 10 September 10 – 11.30am
Vincent Mantsoe (SA/France) offers a masterclass on his technique of GOBA – the bend, to be grounded and to plié. The technique is based on the control of the movement, energy and the use of breath within movement. This articulation is based on the traditional forms from Zulu, Pedi, Sotho and Xhosa styles and forms which have been translated by Mantsoe and have evolved over time and within his dance work. This masterclass is not for beginners.
The workshops are for dancers over 16 years old and booking is essential via Thobi Maphanga on email@example.com. All workshops will take place at Studio 410 at The Playhouse.
