JOMBA! Dance Writing Residency

Facilitated by Clare Craighead and veteran arts journalist Adrienne Sichel

2016 marks the 5th year of the JOMBA! Dance Writing Residency programme. This programme, runs in conjunction with the Drama and Performance Studies Programme and its Honours level dance students, mentors young dancers/choreographers/academics through a process of review writing for dance. Students who participate in the residency will experience the rigours of review writing, which will lead to publication on the JOMBA! Khuluma blog. True to the on-going vision of JOMBA! this writing residency operates to support the growth of dance in South Africa, and KZN. Facilitator Clare Craighead has an MA in dance studies from UKZN and has published widely on dance and South African performance art. Facilitator Adrienne Sichel is a veteran theatre and dance journalist who now facilitates The Ar(t)chive at the Wits School of Arts.
