Jazzart hosts dance send-off

Tanzely Jooste will perform in Seya, choreographed by Jacqueline Manyaapelo, and Infinite Reflections, choreographed by Sifiso Kweyama.

Jazzart is hosting a send-off for its graduating group of 11 trainees by staging Archives, a season of works choreographed by three generations of Jazzart artistic directors.

Archives will be presented at the Artscape Theatre on Friday June 22, at 7.30pm, and there will be two performances on Saturday June 23, at 3pm and 7.30pm.

Infinite Reflections comesfrom Sifiso Kweyama’s personal experiences.

Kweyama’s work reflects each performers’ personal growth and culminates in a dance piece of strength and courage.

Seya (Joy) has been reimagined and reworked for the graduating team by Jacqueline Manyaapelo.

It delves into African rituals and rhythms of connecting with the joy of being, living and loving.

Vrugte (Fruits) by Alfred Hinkel is described as being the harvest of countless years of nature and nurture.

Tickets cost R100 for adults, a season special of R150 for two tickets, and R50 for pupils. Book through Computicket.
