Siwela Sonke Dance Theatre is a professional award-winning dance theatre
company based in Durban. Since its inception in 1994, Siwela Sonke has become one
of the leading dance companies in South Africa, producing and touring work nationally
and internationally. Siwela Sonke formed from a training and development programme
for Black dancers with no access to training opportunities, initiated by The Playhouse
Company in Durban in 1994. Since then, led by Artistic Director Jay Pather, it has
pushed the boundaries of Dance, Theatre and Performance Art in South Africa.
