The Business of the Arts
Dance company Moving Into Dance Mophatong brings life to Shakespearean classic Romeo and Juliet to the theme: Rebellion & Johannesburg. We bring you highlights of this dance-theatre production, which has not only captured the spirit of city subculture, but also the hearts of local and international audiences.
The series centers around the world of the arts and in doing so introduces viewers to South African personalities and artists making their mark both locally and abroad. It showcases and assesses various initiatives that have been launched by the private sector and examines the central issues and points of debate that exist around business and the arts. Interesting themes the series addressed are for example, art as a corporate investment; supporting the arts when looking at a project as a social responsibility or a real reward; strategic sponsorship or the "art" of business conversation.
