Rebellion & Johannesburg at Dance Umbrella

25 February 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 26 February 2016 @ 7:30 pm


Rebellion and Johannesburg premiered in Germany in September 2015 and officially opens the Dance Umbrella 2016. The piece is a modernised interpretation of the classic Shakespearean story Romeo and Juliet set on a backdrop of a transforming street subculture in Johannesburg. With an original score created by Spoek Mathambo, costume and set design by Anmari Honiball, film projection by Ed Blignaut and choreographically by Jessica Nupen assisted by Sonnyboy Motau, the piece examines the complexities of a generation of young South Africans faced with the challenges of a transforming country. Having returned from an uber successful tour in Germany, don`t miss this chance to see it!
