Established in 2001 after the closure of The State Theatre Ballet in 2000, this company has defied the odds and silenced the skeptics by forging a central niche in SA dance using imaginative funding strategies and a vibrant artistic vision. SABT celebrated its sixth birthday in February this year.
With 34 contracted dancers SABT is the country’s largest dance company and one of the largest arts companies of any kind and has established itself as a major player in the performing arts with impressive productions of the classical ballets, new works by South African choreographers and collaborations across international boundaries.
They will be putting on a performance of ‘Pinocchio’ at the Johannesburg Civic Theatre from Thursday, 29th October this year. The production will run until January 2010.
