Love and Passion

During August (Women’s Month), South Africa’s leading dancers, singers and musicians will create spectacular one-night-only concerts in two South African cities. The events entitled Love and Passion  will raise funds for the prevention of Cervical Cancer.

The performances promise to be dazzling: Act 1- dancers of different genres interpret sections of Claude Bolling’s work, who will be our guest of honour Act 2- Dance Meets Passion with live singers and musicians, directed by stellar choreographer Adele Blank. This culminates in the Grand Finale.

Featured dance companies (in Johannesburg) include kMAD, Moving Into Dance, Tribhangi Dance Theatre and Dance Junxion; and individuals such as:

Angie Rebello (now dancing Los Angeles), Yolandi Olckers, and Kelly Moby. Amongst the vocal artists Sibongile Mngoma, Fem Belling, Dominique Paccaut and UK talent Charlie Dee under the musical direction of Richard Cock and Albert Combrink.

The events are the brainchild of Revelation – Dance for a Cure, a non-profit organisation which helps to supply a Nobel Prize-winning preventative vaccine to disadvantaged youngsters. Revelation – Dance for a Cure has hosted annual concerts since 2008 and has so far raised R1,664,000 which has facilitated the immunization of 700 orphaned girls.

Dance for a Cure  will be staged on August 9th 10th at Cape Town’s Artscape Theatre and  on August 17th at Johannesburg’s Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City. Tickets are R120 and available through Computicket. All artists perform free of charge.
