Jazzart Dance Theatre Graduate Performance: Meraki

Artscape Theatre Centre D.F. Malan St, Foreshore, Cape Town

Cape Town, 28 February 2022 – Taking place at the Artscape theatre in Cape Town, 24 – 26 March 2022, Jazzart Dance Theatre’s fulltime dancers will perform their graduate work entitled ‘Meraki’.  The eagerly awaited production will highlight three key works the dancers have co-created since enrolment in 2019.  ‘Meraki’ celebrates the dancers’ hard work and commitment and showcases their exceptional talent, which has been honed and cultivated by three acclaimed South African dance makers. ‘Meraki’ is directed by Dane Hurst and Shaun Oelf, Jazzart’s Artist in Residence and features his latest work ‘Awake’.  The programme opens with ‘Frontline’, choregraphed by Hurst in 2021 and is followed by Jazzart’s former Artistic Director, Sifiso Kweyama’s work, ‘Solid’, which premiered at the Artscape in 2019. ‘Frontline’ was created during a time of global pandemic and protest, a monumental time of change whose echoes still reverberate today.
