Mayhem | Gregory Maqoma
Gula Matari | Vincent Mantsoe

6-7 March | 19.30 | UJ Centre for the Arts | Johannesburg

Maqoma and Mantsoe began showing their work at Dance Umbrella while still working with Moving Into Dance Mophatong. The double bill, featuring Vuyani Dance Theatre, includes:
Mayhem by Gregory Maqoma. A reflection on our altered state of mind, our country in confusion, the madness, the feeling of being in suspense in the confined space of words and chaos where we are left with a body of work that strips away the beauty and gives us a mirror to interrogate ourselves, our actions, our responses.
Gula Matari by Vincent Mantsoe, who currently lives and works in France. This piece was originally created when he was a member of the Moving into Dance Mophatong Company). InGula Matari, the dancers become birds that whistle and use their heads to communicate with other birds.

Put Your Heart Under Your Feet ... And Walk! | Steven Cohen

8-9 March | 21.00 | WitsTheatre | Johannesburg

This work is dedicated to Steven Cohen's soulmate, Elu, with whom Cohen first collaborated on Dance Umbrella in 1998. Over the  next  two  decades  they  radically  changed  the  face  of contemporary dance and performance art in South Africa. In 2016 Cohen was shaken to the core by the loss of both his partner Elu and his beloved childhood care giver, Nomsa. This work, to be presented at the Dance Umbrella, speaks to anyone who has known immeasurable loss and the necessity to keep moving in the face of petrifying grief.
