The Continuum Process with Fana Tshabalala, Deeply Rooted Dance Theater
We all have creative ability. One of Deeply Rooted’s most distinguishing characteristics is its commitment to personal growth and self-actualization for the individual as a creative human being. This philosophy is quite unique within the predominant dance/culture, which often demands allegiance to an appointed vision, systems and/or techniques, asking the learner to suppress his/her individual voice in support. Deeply Rooted encourages its artists, teachers, and students/program participants to set personal goals, to extend into the world, explore, learn, reflect and come back to share, teach, and re-connect with the Deeply Rooted community, thus keeping its process, aesthetic, artists and personnel challenged, inspired and growing vibrantly.
Deeply Rooted believes so ardently in the power of self-actualization that it has developed a forum – the Continuum Process – to serve as a foundational and guiding element within all of its Programs.
Guest instructor Fana Tshabalala previously worked with Deeply Rooted on the 2017 premiere of an American/Chicago-focused adaptation of his work INDUMBA, which will make up the content of this Continuum session. He has choreographed and performed nationally and internationally, including Lena Dance Company in Sweden, Dance Umbrella 2018 in Geneva, and Dance Dialogue Africa, which toured Germany and 12 African countries. He is co-founder and currently a director for Broken Borders Arts Project based at the University of Johannesburg.
