We are Jazzart - the oldest African contemporary dance company in South Africa. Jazzart is the oldest contemporary dance company in the Cape, if not Africa.

It has been at the forefront of contemporary dance development administratively and artistically, within the context of democratic practice, serving marginalised communities in particular. Jazzart’s creative process is an embodiment of a movement language based on improvisation and provides inventive platforms for world class performances that reflect the ever-changing socio-political environment of South Africa and the world.

Operating as usual

SURVIVE will debut work from & who formed the company .sa.

Their work explores the mindset of what it takes to survive juxtaposed with the eternal question of what is peace? Is it enough to just survive, does that mean the moment we pass on from this world is the only moment we truly feel peace? Maybe it's time for us to work together to try and change the narrative from survive to thrive...

Not sure of what to expect at our upcoming triple bill production, SURVIVE? Here is a sneak preview of 'In Body As One' choreographed by Grant Van Ster and Shaun Oelf of Figure Of 8 Dance Collective
The work takes a scenic route of self-discovery, supported by a communal embrace. Not alone, instead alone together. I am because you are.
The dancers glide on and slide into various choreographic vignettes made up of timeless solos and duos with uplifting group dances that fade in and out of a hypnotic cinematic background. To embrace life is to embrace connection, community, and caring, alone we cannot be.
