City premiere for Run!

06 February 2015

Run! – a dance performance choreographed by Nicola Elliott will literally run from 11 – 14 February at UCT's Hiddingh Hall.

According to Elliott, Run! subverts the notion of women as "only soft and fragile and, in both a concrete and abstract way, engages the complex relationship between the female performer and the space and place of the stage".

Recipient of the 2014 Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Dance, Elliott is currently a guest lecturer in choreography at the School of Dance, and in movement for opera at the College of Music.

The show's cast includes UCT dance graduate Thalia Laric, UCT dance students Adriana Jamisse and Julia de Rosenwerth, as well as Ciara Barron and Jori Snell, with musical accompaniment by pianist Mareli Stolp.
