Flemish dance-theatre production (B) comes to Cape Town

Flemish dance-theatre production (B) comes to Cape Town

With the dance-theatre production (B), this Flemish artistic choreographic duo draws the audience deep into their fascination for both the art of boxing and the art of dance in all its contemporary multiformity. (B) is the powerful heavyweight clash between three boxers and seven dancers. From a variety of backgrounds, they all throw everything they have into the dance ring. In dazzling group choreographies and intimate duets, their interior worlds debate with the unrelenting outside world. Competitive boxing is taken to the stage where all its aspects –from the extreme physicality to the psychology of the boxer ànd the public- areexplored.

The hidden side of the boxer, his vulnerability, his loneliness and his humanity get revealed. Frenetic soundscapes and old arias enhance the performers in a set designed to recall a boxing arena. Live and recorded video allows the showdown to be highlighted: zoom in on the bodies, where desire flirts with danger. This new work celebrates the diversity of movement and dance languages and shows how they can respectfully stand next to each other. The duo deliberately uses hybridity, cultural mixing and eclecticismto generate new meanings from interdisciplinary cross-overs.

840

On 23 September the Government of Flanders decided to allocate 160,000 euros for Malawi Humanitarian Emergency Respond Fund for three years (2016-2018). This fund, administered by the UN, provides emergency assistance to more than 6.5 million Malawians. Their country is severely affected by alternating periods of extreme drought and floods caused by climate change and El Niño.

Women benefit from Sustainable Trade Project focusing on chicken

1002

Media consultant Paida Kadzakumanja recently visited two agricultural projects implemented by the Farmers Union of Malawi and funded by the Government of Flanders. After meeting with the beneficiaries, she wrote three articles about the projects.

The District Stakeholder Panels project (2013-2016) is a three-year project which aims to improve agricultural extension services in Malawi. Tamanya Haraw, the Director of Planning and Development at Mzimba District Council, recently praised the project for promoting and strengthening the participation of farmers in policy formulation and implementation at district level.  Through the creation of District Stakeholder Panels, the project brings together government, agricultural organisations and the farmers themselves. One of the innovations, introduced by the Panels, are Agriculture Fairs that provide a link to markets for the farmers, as well as keeping them informed of new technologies and improved production methods and agricultural practices.

Another project is the Sustainable Trade Project (2012-2015) focusing on capacity building of female households by increasing their incomes through the production and sale of chickens. Vulnerable women in the Mzimba District are now earning stable incomes through this breeding project. A follow up project (2015-2020) on nutrition programmes using the chicken programme as a benchmark has been awarded MK2 billion.
