Siyaba - Found Among Translation
Siyaba - Found Among Translation is an intercontinental collaboration between the Swiss composer-performer and visual artist Charlotte Hug, and South African contemporary dance company the Forgotten Angle Theatre Collaborative, choreographed by PJ Sabbagha.
This multi-disciplinary piece delves into the fragility of relationships and the immediacy of those connections. Key elements include the use of Hug’s ‘Son-Icons’: music to be seen, these are paintings and drawings, translated into dance and music. The Son-Icons help to generate dialogue among collaborators, allowing them to speak to and around each other.
Performed by: Charlotte Hug and Forgotten Angle Theatre Collaborative (FATC).
Supported by: Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and University of Johannesburg Arts and Culture.
