Agulhas Theatre Works
Adam co-choreographed “Pretending to be Something, Now Coming from Nothing” with Agulhas Theatre Works of Johannesburg, South Africa.
Adam and Daniel led a self-expression and empowerment workshop through dance and art making at the Community Center in Atlantis, a Coloured township outside Cape Town. Participants aged from 9 months to 94 years collaborated in the project. We devised dance work and later paraded through the streets in an visual art-clad car which traveled from the Community Center into the streets. A dance block party concluded the day.
Hip Hop Theatre Lab
Daniel was in residence at the Market Theatre in Johannesburg, where he directed a workshop production of the Hip Hop Theatre play Blurring Shine by U.S. writer Zakiyyah Alexander. He then created a Hip Hop Theatre Lab in which he trained young artists to make Hip Hop Theatre and to lead youth empowerment and arts workshops, which they then did at Sibikwa Community Theatre in the East Rand. He also taught two days of masterclasses at The Actors Studio and led a day-long workshop in the Langa township near Cape Town.
