Artscape Outreach in Worcester

Season 6 Episode 41

Thu, 1 Jun 2017 12:00am

On October 19th, ARTSCAPE, Cape Town’s no 1 centre of arts and culture,went to Worcester on its annual cultural outreach to the rural areas of the Western Cape.

Spearheaded by Marlene Le Roux, arts director, Artscape took some of its finest performances in music, dance and ballet for a two day jamboree in Worcester’s Town Hall.

School children were bused in from the surrounding areas for two performances on each of the two days festival.The last evening culminated in a gala performance attended by town dignitaries, farmers, residents from surrounding towns.

Marlene and a group of performers discuss how what they are doing can really change people’s minds by breaking down a lot of the cultural isolation so many of our communities still live in. Children, who have never heard opera or seen ballet are transfixed by the experience. And filming the audience faces as they watched a wild and brilliant dance performed by four disabled people, two in wheelchairs,you sense that their perception of the word “disabled” will never be the same !
