Rhodes dance show­case

Grocott's Mail - - ARTSLIFE - STAFF RE­PORTER

Rhodes Univer­sity Drama Depart­ment has in­vited mem­bers of the pub­lic to Theatre in Mo­tion – its an­nual show­case of Masters and Hon­ours stu­dent work. En­try is free, but the pro­gramme is pop­u­lar and so book­ing is es­sen­tial.

In the pro­gramme are stu­dent cre­ated sto­ries, us­ing the skills they have learned in chore­og­ra­phy, phys­i­cal per­for­mance, vis­ual theatre and theatre de­sign.

The chore­og­ra­phers this year tell sto­ries through move­ment in­cor­po­rat­ing a range of colours, emo­tions and tra­di­tions.

Here are works that chal­lenge the gaze of the au­di­ence, break the com­fort of the tra­di­tional fourth wall of the theatre and invite the au­di­ence into the per­form­ers' space to see them at close quar­ters.

Pro­gramme A will be staged on Wed­nes­day 18 Oc­to­ber and Fri­day 20 Oc­to­ber and fea­tures Hon­ours Chore­og­ra­phy stu­dents Danielle van der Merwe, Ge­orgina Makhubele, Mlondi­wethu Dubazane, Ser­ena Paver and Mma­tu­misang Mot­sisi.

Pro­gramme B will be staged on Thursday, 19 Oc­to­ber and Satur­day 21 Oc­to­ber and fea­tures Masters Chore­og­ra­phy stu­dent Carla Mostert as well as Hon­ours Phys­i­cal Per­for­mance stu­dent Athina Vahla,

The per­for­mances in the Rhodes Univer­sity Theatre are free, but with lim­ited seats, book­ings at the Theatre Cafe are es­sen­tial.
