• Short Summary

    An item about Dutch folk dancing in South Africa.

  • Description

    South Africa.

    A demonstration of a Dutch dance by South African dancers at a barbecue party.

    M/S of a windmill. L/S of dancers assembling in the gardens next to a large white house. L/S of the dancers -men in black britches and women in colourful dresses - dancing in circles. M/S of musicians playing accordions and other traditional instruments. Various shots of the dance. M/S of a chef roasting an ox on a spit, a black servant turns the handle. The dancers queue up to get plates of meat. Various shots of the dancers eating on the grass. A man rings a bell and the dancers return to dancing around a square pond.

    The commentary is misleading - the dancers are not Dutch but South African.

    Cuts exist - please see separate record.
