Past Events

 

A Spartacus of Africa

The first ballet versions of the Spartacus story were produced in Russia by the Kirov and Bolshoi companies. Veronica Paeper, then choreographer for CAPAB first created her production in 1984.

In 2015 she re-created her grand-scale, full length ballet and adapted it and set it in a mythical African environment.  This had the largest ever cast of dancers and dance students. This production was then re-worked into a touring production and which has been able to reach over 20 000.

Kerry Nicholls Dance

SANDT was thrilled to introduce world renowned, leading-edge, pioneer in dance, KND, to South Africa in 2019. Kerry has a passion for coaching and supporting professional talent and brings her demonstrable experience to help artists learn more about themselves through encouragement, provocation, and strategic intervention.

Since mentoring and coaching worldwide for the past decade, she has succeeded in providing an honest groundwork for change, placing the individual artist at the centre of their own learning, empowering them to shape their own opportunity to learn, grow and develop.

Kerry’s approach is one of partnership, providing both challenge and support, connecting the achievement between potential and creative outcome. This process builds resourcefulness, self-awareness and resilience, all essential qualities for the 21st century artist.

ENB/ Akram Khan GISELLE

SANDT recognised that the English National Ballet/Akram Khan/, GISELLE was an essential new production that needed to be shared with as many South Africans involved in dance as possible.  Not only the screening of the production, which is a masterpiece, but also with the ‘making of’ this conscious approach to a professional and iconic ballet.

 

SANDT is grateful to ENB for recognising our aim and for allowing us to present these remarkable programmes to dance professionals in South Africa.
