Flatfoot Dance Company in Hilton

2010-01-26 00:00

THE Theatre at St Anne’s College in Hilton is to host a performance by the Flatfoot Dance Company on February 4 at 7.30 pm.

Spirit offers dance fans a sneak preview of two of the company’s works — the duet Hands Wash Each Other, which is choreographed by Flatfoot dancer Vusi Makanya, and Circle, a collaborative piece between the dancers and guest choreographer, Sifiso E. Kweyama.

Hands Wash Each Other, a ­delicate and desperate account of the desire for Ubuntu, is danced as a duet. In it, a lone man and woman, in a rural African setting, learn the heart-wrenching lesson of finding a way to see each other, and that being human is only possible through a ­collective effort.

Circle began as an exploration of traditional values around story­telling and its place in both ancient and contemporary society. It is a combination of heart-stopping ­contemporary dance technique with a tender social conscience and is sure to prove deeply moving.

There will be a 10-minute interval between the two works.

Flatfoot Dance Company, which is based in Durban and working out of the University of KwaZulu-Natal Howard College Campus, is an ­African contemporary dance company that focuses on making socially aware and culturally engaging dance theatre work.

The company is running a week-long dance residency with the Grade 10 dramatic arts pupils at St Anne’s College and performs this ­programme as an example of both professional performance and exploration and education in dance.

Spirit can be seen at The Theatre at St Anne’s ­College at 7.30 pm on February 4. Tickets are R50 (R40 concessions). To book phone 033 343 3300.
