Dance Umbrella

Johannesburg

To mark 25 years of Dance Umbrella, South Africa’s main platform for contemporary choreography and dance, Dance Forum hosts a three-day anniversary featuring upcoming and established choreographers.

Highlights include Standing By by Athena Mazarakis, Beautiful Us by Gregory Maqoma — part of the Beauty trilogy created over a decade — and Between Us, choreographed by Fana Tshabalala, winner of the Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Dance 2013. Tshabalala writes: “Space and distance never determine our relationships or our conversations; it is the senses that define what we share in our relationships and this work reflects on friendship and love.”
