Rule of Three at the Market Theatre

Rule of Three at the Market Theatre

From March to June 2019, contemporary dance from Flanders will hit South African stages. Three of Flanders’ leading dance companies showcase their work in Johannesburg, Oudtshoorn and Cape Town. The first performance will take place on 16 March at the Market Theatre in Johannesburg.

In Rule of Three, Flemish choreographer Jan Martens blends storytelling with live music to create a night-club vibe combined with the feeling of getting lost in the pages of a book, with the result of a stunning dance piece that is loud, bright and brilliant. A succession of dance tableaux unfolds with surprises lurking at every corner, unrelated short scenes give impressions of the profusion of information we are constantly subjected to.

American drummer and producer NAH sets the score for the entire performance mixing live and programmed drums with manipulated sounds, establishing a unique atmosphere where music, lights and movement, interact and overlap in a superb experimental mix. The layering of rhythm, light and music creates a variety of landscapes that might just as easily exude the sweet whiff of nonchalance as set bodies alight. Rule of Three is rebellious and fiery, it unleashes an untamed meditation on the contrasts of our era: numbness and explosion, the decided upon and the intuitive, the heart and the mind.

African première: Sat. 16 March 2019, Market Theatre, Johannesburg

Age restriction: 16+ (full nudity)

Call for Proposals: Strengthening the health system in Mozambique so that no adolescent will be left behind

Concurso público: Fortalecer o Sistema de Saúde de Moçambique para que nenhum adolescente fique para trás


The Government of Flanders has a long-standing relationship with the Government of Mozambique. The Country Strategy Paper III (CSP III) 2016-2020, which is the product of a joint consultation process between the two Governments, states as its common mission “to promote the fundamental right to the highest attainable standard of health for the entire Mozambican population in general, and of its adolescent population more specifically, as part of a strategy to reduce absolute poverty in the country.”

O Governo da Flandres e de Moçambique cooperam estreitamente desde o ano de 2002. O Documento de Estratégia para o Pais (DEP) 2016-2020 entre o Governo da Flandres e o Governo de Moçambique estabelece a missão comum de “reforçar e promover o direito fundamental de acesso ao mais elevado padrão de saúde para toda a população de Moçambique, em geral, e mais especificamente para a sua população adolescente, como parte de uma estratégia de redução da pobreza absoluta no Pais”.
