The Last Attitude at Dance Umbrella

27 February 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 28 February 2016 @ 7:30 pm

R100

Nelisiwe Xaba and Mamela Nyamza, the collaborators of The Last Attitude will interrogate the politics of this ancient art form, in particular the male posture and the relationship between the male principal dancer and the ballerina. Originally the male dancer served as a porter, lifting the ballerina to show how light she is and also showing his masculinity. The progression of the male in Ballet has been phenomenal from a time where they didn`t dance at all, to today where they take centre stage.
