During 2012 Flatfoot Dance Company has set up a partnership with the artSPACEdurban gallery to offer cutting edge, innovative and alternate dance performance platforms made with the specifications of the gallery in mind. Flatfoot’s third encounter with artSPACE durban takes place on November 2.

Watch the world premiere of Sifiso Kitsona Khumalo’s innovative utalago/horizon that begins to truly re-define the aesthetics of African Contemporary dance. Made for the five award winning resident dancers of Flatfoot (Sifiso Majola, Tshediso Kabulu, Julia Wilson, Lerato Lipere and Sifiso Khumalo himself), utalago/horizon also features the accompaniment of master drummer and musician, Njabulo Shabalala.

“This dance work is a breathtaking encounter with the soul and spirit of a contemporary Africa; full of vibrant movement and bustle, and yet enough space to find pause and breath; rediscover the heartland!” says Flatfoot’s artistic director, Lliane Loots. “utalago/horizon is site-reactive so be prepared to look at contemporary dance and the art gallery in a new way!”

utalago/horizon will be performed at 19h00 on November 2. Tickets R50 at the door on the night. A cash bar will be available! More information on 082 875 6065.
