Performed on 29 November 2019 at The Little Theatre, Hiddingh Campus.

When Memories Break sets out to navigate ways of decolonising oppressive dominance and investigating the ramifications of indoctrination in dance.

The purpose of this research is not to depict Classical Ballet as a current colonialist art form but rather to draw attention to what it represented during the years of colonialism, apartheid, and the aftermath of that. And it is against this background that I explore the issues related to the relationship I have with my dance training to date.
