On Fire is the current program of performances at Dorkyparks’s Studio44 curated by Constanza Macras and Tamara Saphir. They have invited performers from South Africa on the topic of gender and tradition. If you have a look in the gallery of the performances that have already been shown you will see it’s a very diverse and colorful program.
Today we would like to recommend you the two pieces that will be shown tonight and tomorrow starting at 19:30 and 21h. The first one is a dance duett titled Mandioca by Dorkypark’s amazing Ronnie Maciel and South African dancer Lucky Kele. Right after you will see the piece Wena Mamela with and from South African choreographer Mamela Nyamza. A few more details and photos after the jump.

19H30 – MANDIOCA BY AND WITH LUCKY KELE & RONNI MACIEL
Between the inhabited body of the ritual and the rituals of the technical performance, a duo work at the moving edges of trans/cendant states and immanent formal virtuosism. Lucky Kele and Ronni Maciel will interrogate what moves them and how to move together.

21h – WENA MAMELA BY AND WITH MAMELA NYAMZA
If you don’t wash the dishes, no ballet for you today.
But I took my swimming costume and ran …
Me and her, you and them, us both.
