Artscape Rural Outreach: Performers

Season 6 Episode 4

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 12:00am

“I remember when I decided to go and do music at UCT. My father took me to all the shebeens….he’d say, ‘See that guy sitting there? He’s a musician”

“I think it’s a great initiative…there’s a lot of people who are not exposed to Art…. when we come to these rural areas people are so overwhelmed and they enjoy it so much they don’t want us to leave”

Performing is some kind of magic; just ask singers Alistair Izobell and Fancy Galada; dancers, Vurswill Seconds and Sikhumbuzo Hlahleni; marimba player, Bongani Sotshononda, and saxophonist, Donveno Prins, as they prepare to dazzle small town audiences as part of the Artscpae Theatre outreach programme. An enchanting development where Artscape Theatre’s top performers travel to the rural areas of the Cape, bringing with them art, entertainment and performing. They describe the pure joy that unfolds as they perform to audiences who have never experienced the magic of the Arts.
