Durban University of Technology’s Drama and Production Studies Department will pay tribute to Deborah Lutge and stage their annual dance production, Reunion, in her honour. The 2014 Annual Season of Contemporary Dance, Reunion offers works inspired by Professor Lutge’s 25 years of passionate commitment.

Reunion is a one week event which celebrates the enduring strengths and traditional values of the Drama Studies Programme. It aims to cement our bonds and celebrate our existence by catching up on, by exploring past connections with ex-students celebrating their growth and success in the industry, and just a quick reminder of where they started.

Reunion showcases all 2nd and 3rd year Theatre Dance Specialists and showcases five new works by Durban based choreographers, Mdu Mtshali, Mlekeleli Khuzwayo, Sifiso Khumalo Sifiso Majola, and directed by dance lecturer Mdu Mtshali.

The production runs from August 25 to 28 at 19h00 at DUT’s Courtyard Theatre in Mansfield Road.
