After two years of training, trainees of the Jazzart Training Programme will have to show their talent in the production, BHABHA, from 17 to 19 July at Artscape Theatre.

BHABHA, (meaning, to fly in isiXhosa), a new Jazzart work, framed within the themes of democracy and freedom, is choreographed by Moeketsi Koena and directed by Jackï Job. This production captures the joy, excitement and boldness of this group of dancers and enables them to emerge and fly into independence. It reflects the beauty of their youth, spirits and limitless potential with ease.

The contemporary choreography of Moeketsi Koena, director of Inzalo Dance and Theatre Company (Johannesburg) and associate director for Madagascar International Dance Festival, I'Trotra, promises vigorous entertainment that is not to be missed.

The 2014 trainees are Nichellé Linnert, Tamsyn Spannenberg, Katlego Moncho, Lusanda Dayimani, Lee-Joel James Bosman, Yaseen Manuel, Lusindiso Dibela, Lewellyn Afrika, Nkosinathi Mngomezulu and Nkemiseng Khena.

Jazzart, the oldest contemporary dance company in the Cape (if not Africa) celebrates 41 years of existence. From its inception, Jazzart has welcomed dancers from across the racial spectrum and specializes in contemporary dance, improvisation, gumboot dance, singing, tap dance, voice and physical theatre amongst others. The Company is grateful for the continued support of the cultural institutions which will enable productions such as Bhabha to be staged.
