The Floating Outfit Project supported by the NAC and in partnership with the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg will present Relook, Redefine, Refresh … Press:RESET on March 24, 2018, at 19h00.

Works being performed:

Clothes maketh (wo)man: Choreographed by Tegan Peacock with the assistance of members from ReRouted Dance Theatre. Fashion versus Gender. Is fashion truly a means of self expression or is it just a shield, constricting our physical bodies and ultimately our true selves into certain parameters of acceptability. Performers: Tegan Peacock, Ashleigh Joubert, JC Zondi

Ubani ontshontshe inyongo? / Who stole the gallbladder?: With choreography and text by Gcina Shange (Dancing Heads) this work challenges, questions and comments on the state of society in current times.
Is it possible to be submissive to a pain that you will never feel?
“my father's words are in the name of his children,
while they are walking history...followers of unknown ideas...pushed into a box...
Being free is to be naked alone...”
Performers:  Shelby Strange and Tshediso Kabula. Filming/Video/Photo: Gav Letsoalo

It’s like a Second Skin: Choreographed and performed by Lorin Sookool, the blurred behavioural boundary of our digital-online and private-offline selves, becomes the site of this new work. ”It's like a Second Skin” contains a series of images curated and captured by Durban based photographic artist Jerome Stoffels as well as original lyrics by the unapologetic female rapper Lex LaFoy.

The Floating Outfit Project, as part of their ongoing mentoring program for young artists under the leadership of Desiré Davids, presents an evening of three works with the focus on young female voices in the field of contemporary performance. These public performances have been planned in order to create additional platforms for the choreographers to research, experiment and showcase their latest ideas, including various collaborations. Audience members are encouraged to chat and give feedback to artists afterwards in the bar / café area.
