Gibney Dance will collaborate with an artistic partner in South Africa, iKapa Dance Theatre, to share each company's different artistic processes and dance practices with local dancers and with children in the townships. Both companies will also perform live for the general public on May 23rd at the OnPointe Dance and Wellness Centre at 112 Loop Street, 5th Floor.
