The Impermanence Museum is a multi-media performance residency that explores processes of renewal and decay, of making and unmaking. The notion of impermanence is intrinsic to the performing arts and relates to the context of Johannesburg – a place of consistent change as new developments arise and the old slowly disappears, a duality of regeneration and nostalgia for places and things that have ceased to exist.

The public is invited to visit the museum, an installation that will continuously change over the duration of the residency, and to witness a series of short performances with music, sand, light and objects.

New dance premieres at Joburg Theatre

Arts Correspondent

 

The countdown has begun to Vuyani Dance Company’s dazzling new multimedia dance production Fullmoon, which made its debut at the Joburg Theatre on 30 April.

Until 11 May, this new work, inspired by the cosmos and conceived and directed by Gregory Maqoma, is set to enchant audiences with its blend of theatricality, multimedia, music, high-end design, athleticism and dance.

Vuyani artistic director Luyanda Sidiya will be bringing his considerable skills to the party as co-choreographer of the piece. 

Among the 25 dancers who will be making magic on the Mandela theatre stage will be two special guest artists: internationally renowned and classically trained South African SA ballet dancer Thoriso Magongwa, and French artistic gymnast Gregory Alcan – a former world, European and French aerobic gymnastics champion. 

The National Youth Orchestra will be in the pit, conducted by Metheu Kieswetter and performing an original new score composed by Isaac Molelekoa. The Vuyani Dance Company dancers and collaborators will be casting a spell in costumes designed by Black Coffee, with House of Queen adding the finishing touches to make-up and hairstyling. 

With the benefit of Declan Randall’s expertise in set and lighting design, and sound designer Friedrich Wilsenach and audiovisual designer Jurgen Meekel adding to the potent mix.

Theatre delights at UJ Arts

Correy Sutherland

The theatre scene in Joburg seems to have been swamped with run of the mill, one (wo)man productions of late, but this one stands out.
Even before the performance started one could sense the superior acting abilities of CheraÈ Halley. This production What The Water Gave Me is an elemental theatrical exploration of the deep connections between Indonesian and Cape Malaysian culture, excavates stories buried in the darkness of Cape Townís history; presented by UJ Arts and Culture at the Con Cowan theatre.
