Dance performer and choreographer Jacki Job has performed for Nelson Mandela and the Dutch Royal family. One of Cape Town’s most diverse choreographers, she is particularly renowned for her Butoh-inspired work, a Japanese contemporary dance form. Since her return to Cape Town in 2011, Job has been commissioned to perform within various local and international cultural and academic contexts. In light of her latest role as choreographer for Cape Town Opera’s upcoming production of Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro), we asked Job a few questions about her life, her inspirations and her thoughts on the dance industry in South Africa.
