"Meeting Point" 2018

"Meeting Point’, in a decolonial turn, brings together artists in academia and the dance community and will centrepiece a beautiful commissioned work ‘Point of Connection’ by acclaimed choreographer and Artistic Director Sifiso Kweyama, of JazzArt Dance Theatre. Kweyama states that the work “interrogates the influence and dynamics of an individual’s internal connection to others”. Performed by  thirteen UCT dance students, the captivating choreography contrasts small, intricate gestures with larger spatial formations to portray the ebb and flow of human connection. The forty-minute work is set to the melodic and dramatic scores of Marco Beltrami, Sipho Gumede, Paul Dukas, Ali and Toumani, Yanni and Theatre Fleas Orchestra. There is power in collaboration and the CTDPS are delighted to have this partnership with Sifiso and JazzArt Dance Theatre this year.

"A Lie of the Mind" 2018

Hailed as Shepherd’s richest and most penetrating play, A LIE OF THE MIND explores family dysfunction and the nature of love set against the backdrop of the gritty America West. The story alternates between two families in the wake of a severe and life-altering incident of domestic abuse. Through the play Shepard creates an alternately amusing and haunting portrait of displaced and irreparably damaged people, of broken connections, and of chronic lapses of memory. When the mind can take no more, it clings to old-fashioned beliefs and comforting rituals… or it survives by breaking down and rewiring its pathways.

 MA Scholarships - Re-imagining Tragedy from Africa and the Global South

The CTDPS will launch an innovative, new five-year research project at the beginning of 2019, Reimagining Tragedy from Africa and the Global South, funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This project proposes to take a concept – tragedy - from the very beginnings of theatre in its European manifestation and to reimagine it from a perspective in Africa that is at once directed at the complex challenges of our global postcolonial present and towards our possible futures both inside and outside of the discipline.
