JOMBA! Contemporary Dance Experience Dance/Performance Writing Residency
Dance Writing Residency
JOMBA! 2010 is proud to be hosting veteran journalist Adrienne Sichel, winner of the 2009 Alan Kirkland Soga Lifetime Achiever award presented by Mondi Shanduka Newsprint and the Newspaper Association of South Africa. Sichel has a reputation for being a fearless defender of artistic and press freedoms in South Africa and has a lifetime reputation of fighting for coverage for dance and theatre in South Africa. Her decades of arts journalism inspires and provokes! Over the 12 days of the festival Sichel will mentor seven young writers in a process of learning how to decode, read and write about performance.
Watch out for the CCA online reviews and the two JOMBA! Khuluma print editions!
Sichel will also co- host and facilitate the selected JOMBA! TALKS DANCE forums in which dancer- choreographers will get to speak about their work – all in an attempt to raise the critical debate around dance in South Africa. Check the schedule for dates!
