In Zimbabwe, people have to deal with issues such as ideological conflict, political uncertainty and unexpecting power failures. Despite all the chaos, iKAPA Dance Theatre has successfully brought something exciting to their public.
iKAPA Dance Theatre proudly premiered the developed version of the production, 'STADIUM', under sub-title ‘the Ever-Evolving Face’, at HIFA, Harare International Festival of Art (Zimbabwe), this week.
HIFA is a six day annual festival and workshop programme that showcases the very best of local, regional and international arts and culture in a comprehensive festival programme. This program consist of works of theatre, dance, music, circus, street performance, spoken word and visual arts . Since its inception in 1999, HIFA is now the largest cultural event in Zimbabwe and among the eight major festivals in Africa. The HIFA 2010 theme is 'FACE': an invitation to turn things around- to look with hope and optimism for transformation and new beginnings, both artistic and social. STADIUM, choreographed by South African born Andile Sotiya, was initially performed in London and Leeds in 2003. In South Africa, iKAPA Dance Theatre performed ‘Stadium’ at the Artscape Theatre, Cape Town in 2009 for the first time. In 2010 'Stadium' was invited to perform at the Out the Box and FNB Dance Umbrella Festivals. There are certain themes depicted in the 'Stadium' production that include games, execution, hardship and victory, isolation and even despair. Stadium therefore looks at the ever shifting scale of subject definition, hence the production sub-title; ‘The Ever-Evolving Face’. iKapa's international tour of STADIUM represents the artistic achievements of the rapidly developing, young and vibrate South African Dance Company.
