Contemporary dance piece at Baxter

Shaun Oelf in Embody You

Figure of 8 Dance Collective is performing a brand-new dance work, Embody You, at the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio, until tomorrow, Saturday July 30.

In the wake of the success of Karatara, a dance theatre piece that tells the story of the devastating Knysna fires of 2018, the award-winning dance and choreography duo Grant van Ster and Shaun Oelf return to the Baxter stage with contemporary dance piece that explores and deconstructs the body’s movement.

Embody you is an exploration into how the body makes us human. It interrogates the exterior and exposes how bodies are expected to conform.

Established in 2014, Figure of 8 Dance Collective has earned accolades for their work on both local and international dance stages. Founders, Grant van Ster and Shaun Oelf are joined on stage by Keenun Wales, Lubabalo Pupu, Crystal Finck and Jay-Dee America.

Embody You is at 8.15pm with a matinee performance on Saturday July 30, at 3pm. Book through Webtickets or Pick and Pay stores.
