PEO­PLE ADELE BLANK

The Sunday Independent - - METRO -

SOUTH African chore­og­ra­pher and dance in­struc­tor, Adele Blank, renowned for her chore­og­ra­phy and teach­ing in clas­si­cal bal­let and con­tem­po­rary dance both lo­cally and abroad, will bring a spe­cial touch to the Mar­ket The­atre in Noted, which runs from November 16-18.

Noted fea­tures two women go­ing through a jour­ney of re­al­i­sa­tion as they over­come en­trap­ment, abuse and op­pres­sion to find com­mon ground on what they can pass on to the next gen­er­a­tion. This brand-new piece, cre­ated and di­rected by Ju­lia Burn­ham, and men­tored by Blank, con­sid­ers how gen­der and cul­ture in­form our per­sonal nar­ra­tives. How can we re­vise the man­tle handed down to our chil­dren? How can we bet­ter re­flect on our own, and other ex­pe­ri­ences?

Burn­ham started danc­ing at a young age with com­mu­nity groups in Alexan­dra. She prac­tised mod­ern and tra­di­tional dance forms, which in­flu­enced her to join Mov­ing into Dance Mopha­tong. While with the com­pany she per­formed work by chore­og­ra­pher Robyn Or­lin over­seas.
