DUT Dance Drama 2008 offers season of contemporary dance.

The Durban University of Technology’s Drama Department presents a season of cutting edge contemporary dance titled Light of Hope at the Courtyard Theatre from October 1 to 4.

Light of Hope is a dance production performed by second and third year dance specialists, directed by dance lecturer Mdu Mtshali.

Showcasing dance works by Durban choreographers Mdu Mtshali, Musa Hlatshwayo, Sanele Mzinyane and Neliswa Rushualang, the production was initially inspired by real events and current political, social situations in the whole of Africa including the recent xenophobia attacks which left thousands of men, women and young innocent children homeless with no food and shelter.

Light of Hope runs from October 1 to 4 at 19h00 at the Courtyard Theatre on the DUT Berea Campus in Mansfield Road. For bookings contact Ronicka Sirputh on 031 373 2194.
