Coming up at Rhumbelow Theatre in Durban this weekend is Michael Jackson: Black Or White presented by Michael Jonathan & Dancers. Shows will take place from December 3 to 5, 2021.

From a young age, Michael Jonathan felt the magic of Michael Jackson and started mimicking his dance moves.

In the words of the legend himself “the greatest education in the world is watching the masters at work” and that is exactly what Jonathan did.

His uncanny resemblance to the king of pop and perfected dance moves, earned him the title of the new king of pop and the world’s no1 impersonator

Jonathan came to South Africa 15 years ago from France, he studied at the school of arts in Pretoria and began his professional career 14 years ago, amazing audiences with his tribute shows.

Do you remember the time you first saw the moonwalk…….? Capture the moment again with Jonathan as he takes you back in time with all the signature moves.

Along with his team of dancers, they have perfected all the moves and they want to take you down memory lane. Experience the music and the magic from the exhilarating dance routines to songs such as Billie Jean, Thriller, Beat it, Remember the time, Dirty Diana, black or white and many more.

In this prejudice world that we live in, we need the chance to escape and enjoy ourselves.

We need to be reminded that it doesn’t matter if you’re BLACK OR WHITE, we are one, and we need to heal the world with one kind act a time. This is more than a show – it is part of History – Don’t miss it!!!

Performances take place on December 3 and 4 at 19h00 and on December 5 at 14h00.
