Beyond by Indoni Dance Academy and friends brings together the broader dance and arts community to create a collaborative celebration on Sunday 25 August 2019 at Artscape.
Beyond highlights the creativity, diversity and the sheer joy of breaking down the silos, going beyond ourselves, and coming together in dance. In a show of strength and unity, these performances feature over 120 dancers from the Indoni Dance Academy, Dance Theatre Africa, Figure of 8, Jika Madinga, Unmute, Nqaba, Janine Booysens, Alexander Sinton High, Jazzart and Is’thatha.
A future in dance
Individual works are choreographed by each company. To weave a common thread throughout, Sbonakaliso Ndaba, the Artistic Director of Indoni Dance Academy, directs the performances and the grand finale. To add to this sense of unity, Sbonakaliso has recommended a soundscape created by the intriguing, haunting music of the world fusion multi-instrumentalist Reinhardt Buhr.
Each company has also chosen dancers from their outreach groups to guide them on the path to a future in dance. These young dancers will experience the process, the dedication and the hours of rehearsal needed, and finally will enjoy the exhilaration of live performances. They will have the opportunity to work alongside the role models in their own company and also the leading dancers, choreographers and trainers of all the companies involved.
