Big City, Big Dreams is original and compelling viewing. It brings together an impressive cast and crew of South African creatives to tell – through dance – the story of two young people arriving in Jozi and finding their place, and love, in the heart-thumping buzz and rush.

This collaboration is between Joburg Ballet, Moving Into Dance Mophatong and Vuyani Dance Theatre, a formidable trio ably representing all the wonders that our dance community has to offer. Choreographers Shannon Glover, Lulu Mlangeni and Sunnyboy Motau create a shared vision that exploits the strengths of each.

The production is directed by Fiona Ramsay, one of the country’s foremost theatre and screen practitioners, with a stage set and lighting by Wilhelm Disbergen and a score composed by Nik Sakellarides. The excitement of this piece is that it holds on to a constant element of surprise, because the audience isn’t sure what is coming next – a lot like the experience of arriving in a new city and trying to find your feet.
