“Dance is the Hidden Language of the soul.” Martha Graham.
Martha Graham’s evocative quote is the creative springboard for the National School of the Arts Dance production, Hidden Language. Delving into the learners’ biographies, through the simple question – what does dance mean to you – the stage is set for Hidden Language, a flagship production of the NSA’s popular multi-genre Festival of the Arts.
Helping to find the Hidden Language are celebrated professionals Sean Bovim and Mandla Sunnyboy Motau Ntuli. Bovim is re-staging his 2007 neo-classical work Tanzanite Ten and Sunnyboy Motau, from Moving Into Dance is creating a new work on the young NSA dancers. They will be working alongside the NSA’s Gillian Bonegio (Spanish), Laura Cameron (Contemporary), Heather Dreyer (Neo-classical), and Yusuf Thomas (Contemporary). Top student choreographers from 2019; Hannah Dludla(grade 10), and Ashley Magutshwa (Grade 11) also have their work featured in the line-up.
Hidden Language runs at an hour.
