PEOPLE ADELE BLANK
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.
