Thursday, 4th of December – Sunday, 14th of Decmber 2008
Emperors Palace has scheduled an entertainment line up to remember as it celebrates its 10th Birthday and a host of incredible milestones. An Emperors Palace celebration would not be complete without featuring a regular to the casino resort – Johnny Clegg will be presenting his new production Heart of the Dancer, a show outlining milestones of this incredible South African artists own career at the resort from the Thursday, 4th of December, 2008 to Sunday, 14th of December, 2008.
Johnny Clegg is known for his live and energetic stage performances. Heart of the Dancer is a show looking at the role of dance in Clegg’s career and how certain songs were shifted towards choreographic presentations when they were played live. It also looks at the history of one particular dance which became widely used in the Juluka and Savuka periods. The body of the show also includes all of Clegg’s classic repertoire as well as work from his One Life album.
By combining African music structures with Celtic folk music and international rock sounds, Clegg – together with Juluka, Savuka and as a solo artist – pioneered a new and unique sound, establishing himself as South Africa’s biggest musical export. From Europe to the US, from Australia to France, audiences in sold out venues have danced to Cruel, Crazy Beautiful World, Crocodile Love, I Call Your Name, Take My Heart Away, Woza Friday, Scatterlings of Africa, Impi, Spirit of the Great Heart and African Sky Blue.
