The annual JOMBA! Contemporary Dance Experience has become synonymous with razor-sharp cutting-edge contemporary dance from national, African and international performers and dance makers. Presented by the Centre for Creative Arts (University of KwaZulu- Natal), and with principal funding from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, the 14th edition of JOMBA! takes place from 29 August to 9 September at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre and other venues.
This year's festival is imbued with a strong French flavour as part of the France South Africa Season exchange programme. Festival highlights include the visually stunning "Henriette et Matisse" by French choreographer Michel Kelemenis, a return to Durban by South Africa's legendary dance maker Vincent Mantsoe who will premiere a new solo work and, Johannesburg's provocative dance theatre maker PJ Sabbagha who is collaborating with Reunion Island's Eric Languet. The festival will also feature its ground breaking JOMBA! City - an interactive, outdoor dance taking-back-of-the-city event on 31 August. Watch out for workshops and master classes.See www.cca.ukzn.ac.za for more details.
