Mixing it Up : a new Hip Hop dance theatre festival featuring Duo Clash 66

A EUNIC project - When: 7 & 8 March @ University of Johannesburg Arts Centre and 10 & 11 March @ Artscape Theatre, Cape Town - Admission: R50. Bookings at Computicket.

Mixing it up is a new South African hip hop dance theatre festival which aims to showcase the best of South African dance crews. The festival will give South African audiences the opportunity to experience leading edge hip hop dance theatre with a uniquely South African flavour featuring dance crews such as Immortal Style from Cape Town and performers from JHB (tbc). In addition to the dance performances, we will see the inclusion of well-known South African rappers and DJ’s.

The festival will also feature international hip hop dance theatre pioneers from France, Germany, UK and Zimbabwe including a special appearance by the duo Clash 66: Sebastien Ramirez (France) and Saïdou Mustapha Lehlouh aka Bboy Darwin (Clash 66 is pictured above - credit Dirk Korell). In their performance AP15, the duo raises the question whether it is possible to unify body and soul. Two people - a woman and a man - explore the mysteries of attraction sensitive and dynamic choreography with immaculate technique.

Please note that the performance will start at 8pm, however the doors will open at 3pm for various exhibitions and workshops – i.e. DJ's, street wear stalls from local designers, graffiti artists exhibition as well as bboy free style jam. With the support of the British Council in collaboration with Heal the Hood Project, Artscape Theatre, Goethe Institut, French Institute of South Africa, the Embassy of France in South Africa, EUNIC, DJ Switch and Matchboxology.
