Artist Statement:

    Our project takes a look at certain statistics about specific locations in Durban. These will be represented through dance and broadcast in highly populated areas in the city for public consumption. The public will be given the opportunity to vote whether they agree or disagree with the statistics via answering simple questions that should show what their interpretation or experience has been. This will then show how similar or different public perception is to specific data. In this way we hope to encourage the public to become more aware of their environment and engage with statistics that are readily available but hardly ever given the time of day.
