On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Adrienne Sichel about Body Politics: Fingerprinting South African Contemporary Dance.
Body Politics: Fingerprinting South African Contemporary Dance.
The Ar(t)chive, South Africa’s award-winning theatre dance and physical performance archive, will launch the ground-breaking new publication: Body Politics: Fingerprinting South African Contemporary Dance by pioneering veteran dance writer Adrienne Sichel at the Market Theatre on 29 September. It was released in KZN at this year’s JOMBA! Contemporary Dance Experience earlier this month.
Sichel has over the past 40 years, painstakingly documented in her journalistic writing and critiques the changing landscape of contemporary dance in South Africa pre and post-democracy. Her contribution to the dance industry has earned her the respect of both the national and international dance community.
Body Politics: Fingerprinting South African Contemporary Dance is a blend of award-winning, veteran dance writer Adrienne Sichel’s journalistic writing and experience combined with a vast collection of research material on the evolution of contemporary dance in South Africa. This fingerprinting exercise connects some of the dots of how a very valuable, even unique, heritage, has taken shape.
