Tranceformations and Transformations - Southern African Rock

After years of research, writing and creating, Sylvia 'Magogo' Glasser, cultural activist, dancer, teacher, choreographer, mentor, social anthropologist and writer, has committed to print a ground-breaking publication documenting her approach to the creation of a theatre dance work, Tranceformations, which was produced in 1991 with dancers from the renowned Moving Into Dance (MID) company, based in Newtown. At the heart of this book are issues of cultural appropriation, cultural exclusivity, cultural fusion or hybridisation and Afrofusion. Books will be on sale at R240.
