PHETOGO by WGRUV DANCE in Cape Town
Join WGRUV Dance International for their debut performance season of PHETOGO!
WGRUV Dance Company seeks to honour the classics and modern styles of Contemporary, Ballet and Spanish Dance as they introduce the South African audiences to PHETOGO. An exciting array of colourful dances, WGRUV Dance is excited to share a restaging of Jessica Lang’s, ‘Solo In 9 Parts’. This contemporary ballet in 3 movements celebrates life, dance and will lift your spirits as you enjoy Jessica’s brilliant choreography to music by Vivaldi.
PHETOGO also features a new neo classical ballet that has been created by Ken Yeatman, Holly Gruver and Lex Gruver called ‘Shades Of Blue’, which finds themes of relationship, Balanchine style nuances and subtlety.
For PHETOGO, Carli Olivier and Holly Gruver have combined forces to present a collaborative piece titled, ‘SAND’ which ignites a feel of a contemporary breath reaction to the swirling intensity of Spanish whip and whirl. ‘Unsquared’ by American choreographer, Tyler Gilstrap takes us back to the 50’s with a playful Quartet into a Duet, which ushers in a new style of fall and recovery to Dave Brubeck and Bill Evans music. For PHETOGO, audiences will enjoy ‘Rhythms’ based off of Elderbrooks’ ‘Could’ as Contemporary Choreographer: Holly Gruver draws upon classical Graham style work, plus more.
Don’t miss the chance to support innovation and beautiful art that is sure to celebrate and inspire.
