Durban University of Technology’s Drama Department presents a season of Contemporary Dance, an annual dance production titled, Colours of Dreams. This production directed by dance lecturer, Mdu Mtshali revolves around different dreams which are presented in different colours including Pink, Red, Black, Grey, White, Green, and Yellow.
Colours of Dreams focuses on a journey in search for the truth “coming clean”, purity, healing, growth, newness which can be symbolic of death and new beginnings, individuality and space that define our inner being. Mtshali said the work represents freedom from the physical body, as we experience in sleep and while dreaming where we don’t use our physical bodies but instead use our mental and spiritual bodies to experience our dreams. “Most of these dreams relates to our current “lesson in life”, we are spirit/ soul having a physical dream, not the other way around. Have you ever felt like your life is like a play, and you are acting out some role that you don’t even understand, and each time you turn away from it, next time it will be more unpleasant. Until, finally you are forced to acknowledge its importance for your growth?”
Colors of Dreams will be performed by second and third year dance specialists who specialize in theatre dance. The production will also showcase four works by Durban based choreographers, Mdu Mtshali, Musa Hlatshwayo, Mlekeleli Khuzwayo and Sandile Mbili.
