For 27 years, Dance Umbrella has dazzled, educated, showcased and promoted performance art to an adoring South Africa audience.
Extra Ordinary is a performance installation and a living photography exhibition due to take place at Maboneng’s GoetheonMain towards the end of the month. In this work in progress version, the multi-talented artist Sifiso Seleme plays with stereotypes of men and women, with glamour and poverty, ecstasy and exhaustion. Longing and generosity, despair and hope are all present in this extraordinary idea and first performance. In this work, the viewer learns about the double life of the main figure. The performer misleads the audience and asks them to take a careful look into the details on stage.
The background of Sifiso Seleme’s work is comprised of strong pictures in the post-apartheid society in his home in South Africa. His interest is particularly the in-between realities of life in Johannesburg and Soweto and its possibilities and impossibilities.
