Joburg Ballet will be presenting four new neo-classical ballets at Joburg Theatre from 5 to 14 July. It's wonderful to see our Ballet Company  offering new works other than the beloved classics- it shows their range and diversity. Collectively entitled Unbound, the company showcases four pieces.

These are choreographer  and choreographer Kitty Phetla’s Wakanda.

 Shannon Glover’s I Think, Therefore I Am, draws inspiration from French philosopher René Descartes.Glover was recently on a three week choreographic fellowship at The Center for Ballet and the Arts at New York University.

Kitty Phetla’s Wakanda, an expanded version of the Breaking Ballet episode made for Joburg Ballet’s partnership with branding company TBWA Hunt Lascaris last year, is set in the fictional African country of Wakanda ruled by Black Panther.

 Also featured in Unbound is the Johannesburg premiere of Belgian choreographer Kevin Durwael’s Transcendence, a dynamic show-stopper.

 The fourth work in Unbound is Esther Nasser’s The Angel Trilogy, set to music by The Rolling Stones, Chopin and Mozart. It explores ideas of personal energies.

 Joburg Ballet offers a range of affordable ticketing options for Unbound, including half price on opening night, a budget priced morning matinee with all seats just R100 and discounts for pensioners and groups.
