South Africa's dancers find their feet

In Full Flight Purcell Room, London ***(out of 5)

Judith Mackrell - The Guardian

Quote:
Dance in the new South Africa seems to reflect of the country at large. The white-establishment companies have been scaled down or disbanded; a new multirace generation is fighting to occupy the freed-up spaces in the culture; artists from abroad are visiting in increasing numbers. And there's precious little money to pay for it all. But even if South African dance is struggling to assert itself, In Full Flight reveals that it's doing so in style, with Gregory Maqoma's opening piece showing how the best of it is both smart and deeply personal.

<B>In Full Flight</B> <P>The rainbow nation shows its true colours<P>by Nadine Meisner in The Independent<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>It's not every day you get to see contemporary dance from the new South Africa, so In Full Flight was an alluring crash course, without a raffia skirt or leopard-skin shield in sight. The show featured different choreographers and performers and its first surprise was how diverse the mechanics of their dance were. The second surprise was that their work should be so political. Actually, it shouldn't have been a surprise, the context being South Africa. But it felt like one.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="Http://enjoyment.independent.co.uk/theatre/dance/story.jsp?story=75128" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A>
