By Elvis Basudde Each time they got on stage to perform, they were received with warm applause before the audience hushed up in mesmerised silence to see their beautiful and electrifying antics and dances. Each of their performance was greeted enthusiastically and their sensuous stage antics would leave everybody amazed. They are the contemporary dance duo, Velerie Berger from France and Sello Peasa from South Africa, in a contemporary dance duet dubbed Everyday. Total silence engulfed National Theatre last weekend as the duo enthralled the scanty audience with their collection of contemporary dance which showed exceptional creativity and artistry. They call it the contemporary dance, but in local terms if we called it creative dance, we would not be far from the truth. If you have watched the creative dance by the former Namasagali students or the Obsessions in their outstanding costumes and breath-taking strokes, then you now have an idea the type of dance the duo were performing The duo’s ability to twist their bodies into bizarre shapes as if they were performing acrobatics earned them great applause from the audience. Everyday, courtesy of Alliance Francaise, explores two areas: the way social space in which everyday life is conditioned and the private space where we trust our senses and our instincts. To express and mime private and social situations, the two dancers made an unusual use of the accessories on stage like bed-sheets, chairs, talc and red-and-white-striped tape. The duo were on the last lap of their tour in different countries of Africa when they performed in Uganda. They had earlier toured and performed in Kenya, Tanzania, Burundi, South Africa and France. ends
