A contemporary dance festival is going to take place in Johannesburg from February 17th.
Holidaymakers on flights to Johannesburg who are interested in contemporary dance have the chance to attend the new Dance Umbrella festival.
Taking place in several locations around the city, the festival will begin on February 17th and will play host to some of the most talented performers from the world of modern dance.
The event begins with a production of the interactive dance and video production of Nelisiwe Xaba and Mocke J Van Veuren’s Uncles & Angels at the Goodman Space at Arts on Main.
Other works include a mixed media production of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar reworked by Jay Pather called Qaphela Caesar!, which is being held in the former Johannesburg Stock Exchange.
Running until March 4th, there will be range of other productions taking place exploring a number of different themes.
Many artistic events take place that could appeal to people on flights to Johannesburg each year, with the Artspace gallery recently showcasing a range of works that had been developed by local artists.
