Without words- exposing the power of dance
Joburg Ballet hosts open discussions with the dancer choreographers focusing on the power of dance. The discussion highlights gender, sexuality and identity in South Africa and the role of arts in society.
As part of an initiative to raise awareness and highlight issues effecting modern life, Joburg Ballet aims to encourage dialogue between audiences, artists and practitioners. This discussion builds on the development of ballet and dance as a tool for transformation in South Africa and abroad and aims to promote the role that arts and culture play in society.
Through activations, the power of dance has recently shed light on issues such as #BringBackOurGirls; 67 Blankets for Mandela Day; saving the African Rhino; and the unrest between Ukraine and Russia with dancers from Kiev and Moscow sharing the stage in Johannesburg in a celebration of art and unity. Celebration 6 continues this drive to effect change through the collaboration of Joburg Ballet with artists and practitioners in the city.
