JOMBA! @ THE MARKET THEATRE

JOMBA! @ THE MARKET THEATRE

12 – 17 September 2023

As part of celebrating our 25th anniversary year, JOMBA! is delighted to have formed a partnership with the Market Theatre to collaborate in sharing a smaller and carefully curated “JOMBA! @ THE MARKET” following the Durban festival. Four selected local and international dance companies will travel on to Johannesburg and the Market Theatre and will feature in a week-long celebration of some of the world’s most profound and provoking dance makers and dance companies. Gauteng and The Market Theatre audiences will have an opportunity to revel in the performance excellence of this curated contemporary dance platform.
