Dance has long been an expression of our humanity and a marker of traditional and contemporary cultural identities. The Dance section of the Centre for Theatre, Dance and Performance Studies at UCT presents Dancing Prism - a spectrum of rich, and at times, decolonial embodied conversations among and between traditional and contemporary dance heritages (Irish, Indonesian, African contemporary, Spanish, Classical ballet, Caribbean dance and contemporary dance).
Dancing Prism is Directed by Lisa Wilson and features choreographic works from faculty/choreographers Janine Booysens, Lindy Raizenberg, Byron Klaasen, Maxwell Rani and Lisa Wilson, as well as an installation by Gerard Samuel.
Dancing Prism (April 20-21) heralds the commencement of International Dance week established by The International Theatre Institute.
