With lockdown restrictions at Level 1, giving audiences and artists a space to safely meet, the Centre for the Less Good Idea is pleased to be reigniting the FOR ONCE programme : a regular live performance programme at the Centre in which new work is incubated and shown for one-night only.
For the month of March, a dance performance from collaborating choreographer / dancers Xolisile Bongwana and Thulisile Binda, “Mtwan’oMntu”,
will be presented For Once on the evening of 26 March 2021. Mtwan!oMntu is an exploration of a deep yearning for connectedness. It mines life!s complex, highly dynamic and non-linear expressions in seeking a belonging and building relationships- be it self, love or spiritual connections.
Mtwan!oMntu is a journey that evokes the awareness of a mongoose and is premised on the idea that the energy flows to where your attention goes. In their words, Xolisile Bongwana and Thulisile Binda, collaborating choreographers and dancers, express:
“Using rhythmic and cyclical movement we attempt to connect to the #other! – in it we often encounter the clash – a fight for space, attention, time and recognition, within these processes we are able to discover structure, development and growth and with them the ability to re-create new forms and ideas, again and again”
