ArtsAbility Residency
GPS projects 2019

ArtsAbility Dance Residency was a creative residency followed by performances in inner city Cape Town, Gugulethu and Khayelitsha, Western Cape.

Project leader Nadine Mckenzie, who is also the artistic director of the Unmute Dance company, used the GPS grant to present a residency with 12 choreographer/performers who used their creative work to highlight the challenges and aspirations of people living with different physical and mental disabilities.

Supported by the able support of the Unmute dance Company, the participants created a programme of open-air performances that were presented in 3 venues around the Cape Town metropolitan area: public space outside the Artscape Theatre in the Cape Town inner city, the streets around the Kasi Theatre in Khayelitsha, and public spaces in Gugulethu, where they were supported by Mhlanguli George of the Theatre in the Backyard project, who had himself received a GPS Grant in 2018.
