Muizenberg

24th Cape Town International Kite Festival

Come and meet an aerial ‘big five’ when Nemo, Squid, Octopus, Red Teddy and Bertie the Worm take to the skies at the 24th Cape Town International Kite Festival on 27 and 28 October, in Muizenberg. It is Africa’s biggest kite festival and sees kiters from around the world flying incredible kite creations in support of Cape Mental Health, South Africa’s oldest mental health organisation.

The annual kiting extravaganza is the grand finale to October’s Mental Health Month campaign and has been flying in support of Cape Mental Health since 1994.

Kite Fest 1

“Rise Up is our theme for 2018,” says Ingrid Daniels, director of Cape Mental Health and president elect of the World Federation for Mental Health. “We believe everyone is born with potential to rise up beyond life’s circumstances. Our mission and the services we provide help people realise this potential and overcome mental health challenges they may encounter. Kites are one of the tools we use. Almost everyone feels inspired when they simply lift their heads and look up.”

Statistics show that every year one person in four will have a mental health condition. Mental health affects everyone but for people living in a disadvantaged urban or rural community, the impact of disability and poverty can be particularly challenging.

At just R40 per person (and R15 for children 12 years old and younger) this spectacular event offers affordable, fresh-air fun that is good for you and your family, as well as helping those affected by mental health problems.

Bring along your own kite to fly in the public flying arena, buy a kite when you are there or make a kite at one of the many free kite-making workshops for children and adults, on both days of the festival.

There is also live entertainment (dance, music and comedy), a tea garden, food trucks and fairground rides. The free, supervised Toddler Zone gives parents a chance to sit down and relax. Visitors are welcome to bring along a picnic but please leave dogs at home.

The 24th Cape Town International Kite Festival is at Zandvlei Nature Reserve, Muizenberg (corner of Axminster and The Row) on 27 and 28 October, from 10 am to 6 pm. There is lots of parking at Muizenberg High School and access by train (False Bay or Muizenberg stations). Entry is R40 (R15 for children 12 years and under). Tickets are available at the gate or via www.Quicket.co.za.

For info visit www.capementalhealth.co.za, contact Cape Mental Health on 021 447 9040 / info@cmh.org.za or follow @CTKiteFest on FacebookTwitter and Instagram or our hashtag #RiseUpAndFly

BLACK Panther Conversation
The Black Panther has landed with such a powerful force that it has gotten everyone talking. Black audiences across the globe are feeling empowered and emboldened by the power of Afro-futurism painting a new African narrative, the experience of an almost all-black cast with a host of powerful characters who look like them. While many others may not see why there’s such a big fuss over “just another Marvel movie”, it’s important to lean in and understand the significance of this moment and imagery. You’ve watched the movie, you’ve let it T’challa-enge some of your perceptions, now let’s talk! Join us for a night of amazing short talks, deep round-table discussions, panel Q and A and a chance to explore more deeply the layers of significance that director Ryan Coogler [Fruitvale Station, Creed] and this impressive cast have set before us. We WakaWaka’d when the world cup come to town, now we invite you to #WakandaForever

Pieter-Dirk Uys: When in doubt, say Darling | 14 – 16 Mar 18
Sometimes politics repeats itself, not only taking history and turning it into farce, but taking farce and turning into the fake news which is now called entertainment. Pieter-Dirk Uys is sorting out 40 years of distress, disguise and disgust:from apartheid to tripartite, from amandla to Nkandla. Wigs, glasses, wagging fingers, toyi-toyis, red berets, trump cards of madness, icons and aikonas. From Bezuidenhouts, Raubenheimers and Ramaphosas to Altzheimers.

Performed in English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa, the play critically engages the 2015 student protests in SA, and uses the language of storytelling and physical theatre to engage with the struggles faced by woman immersed in social and political environments that are systematically violent.

Lost in Known Territory | 28 Feb – 24 Mar 2018
“Over the years I have collected and catalogued a large selection of images from various sources including books, magazines, websites and social media, personal photo archives, and many more. The figures in this body of work were created from fragments of these images, and their compositions reference certain historical paintings motifs.

This creates subjects that seem to be contextualised and somewhat recognisable, yet they passionately attempt to proclaim their own unique identities, despite our pre-conceived notions. This process examines how we impose identities upon others, and subsequently challenges fashionable standards of beauty and sexualisation.”

The Blowfish Sundowner sessions presents Hatchetman(Duo)
Due to such a fantastic response last week, we’ve decided to bring the Hatchetman guys back this week for the Sundowner sessions at Blowfish Restaurant. Usually a 4 piece, well known for their soaring harmonies and searing dynamism in the musical accompaniment, Jonathan Tait(frontman and guitar player) and Matt Catto (percussionist) decided to partake in a bit of a spin off of the band, offering a slightly more stripped down versions of the songs fans have come to love over the last 4 years. You can expect music and songwriting of the highest calibre, as well as a few Crosby, Stills and Nash, Neil young and Eagles covers thrown in to the mix. These are bands that Hatchetman have very often been compared to.

Chinese Painting
Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world. Painting in the traditional style is known today in Chinese as guóhuà (simplified Chinese: 国画; traditional Chinese: 國畫), meaning “national” or “native painting”, as opposed to Western styles of art which became popular in China in the 20th century. Traditional painting involves essentially the same techniques as calligraphy and is done with a brush dipped in black ink or coloured pigments; oils are not used.

Kudu | 27 Feb – 10 Mar 2018
Set in the year 2030, the AmaXhosa Nation has taken over the Eastern Cape in an attempt to utilise the land for their own prosperity. Three Khoi descendants and their aging cow are migrating to the Eastern Cape. Drama ensues when they come to Intaba KaNdoda, a poverty-stricken community once ruled by the Khoi chief Ndoda. The Khoi descendants, having heard stories of how chief Ndoda was killed in a land dispute, have come to reclaim what is rightfully theirs- they have come to take the land from the AmaXhosa. Kudu is not only about people reclaiming their land, but also their customs, culture, languages and spirituality. It’s a fight for acknowledgement as existing, not extinct.

Zabalaza Festival | 9 – 17 march 2018
The Festival has created a new opportunity for three young directors to bring ground-breaking work to the line-up and is called the Platform for Special Talent. This project emerged out of the need to bridge the gap between new theatre makers and established theatre makers by giving them opportunities within a professional theatre space.

23 Years a Month and 7 Days | 13 – 24 March 2018
Performed in English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa, the play critically engages the 2015 student protests in SA, and uses the language of storytelling and physical theatre to engage with the struggles faced by woman immersed in social and political environments that are systematically violent. It is set between contemporary SA’s higher learning institutions and Potters Field, a poverty-stricken place where the citizens have lost all hope and anxiously awaits their deaths. Themes of migration and self-actualisation are explored as a young woman of humble upbringing finds her identity in conflict with her environment.

Kalk Bay Theatre
Another Day | 13 Feb – 16 Mar 18

Thirst  | 11 March 2018
Sugar-daddy Theatre co. presents, Thirst, by Eugene O’Neill. It’s somewhat ironic that this one act play (adaptation by Sugar-daddy) is set one hundred years ago, which coincides with the last time Cape Town experienced such a serious drought! The play can be seen as a metaphor for life and borders on absurd-ism… A gentleman, a lady and a sailor are stuck on a raft waiting to be rescued.. what happens next?

To Get To The Moon|  13 – 24 March 2018
A gentle exploration of the lives of married couple, Norman and Bianca. Some years prior to the action of the play they have experienced a traumatic event. The very different ways they have tried to come to terms with this event threaten to destroy their marriage. The play explores themes of responsibility, guilt and blame, the science and art of decision-making and the shame that keeps crucial information hidden. A moving and uplifting experience.

Snip Tucked | 28 Feb – 26 May 2018

Pricked, plucked, pulled and prodded – brace yourselves for a titillatingly turbulent treat!

Art Exhibitions
Lizelle Kruger : Cape Town Memoirs and Dangerous Liaisons | until 30 Mar 18 
Kruger’s large-scale street and landscape works of the Mother City from the 1920s to 1960s form the backdrop to the women who take centre stage in this exhibition. The artist pays tribute to women from every sphere of society: women who participated in dockside liaisons, women who operated the ‘Sugar Houses’, and the imported female slaves – many of whom were housed at the Company Slave Lodge which can still be seen in Adderley Street.

Penny Siopis, This is a True Story: Six Films (1997 – 2017) | 16 Feb – 15 Jul 18
The exhibition evokes ideas of truth as a merging of experience, fact, fiction, imagination and the fragility of memory. Projecting a multiplicity of experiences, Siopis’ films make use of found 8 mm and 16 mm film footage, drawing from official documents, newspaper clippings and personalised accounts of history to create an overlooked historiography.

Lost in Known Territory | 28 Feb – 24 Mar 2018
“Over the years I have collected and catalogued a large selection of images from various sources including books, magazines, websites and social media, personal photo archives, and many more. The figures in this body of work were created from fragments of these images, and their compositions reference certain historical paintings motifs.

This creates subjects that seem to be contextualised and somewhat recognisable, yet they passionately attempt to proclaim their own unique identities, despite our pre-conceived notions. This process examines how we impose identities upon others, and subsequently challenges fashionable standards of beauty and sexualisation.”

There are different levels of Biodanza, this is a deep or advanced class. Each class has an intention (or theme) which will be used to gently guide the dancer into a journey of self-expression and exploration while fully in the here-and-now. The unfolding of the dance will be unique for each participant – they in effect create their own journey… and bliss…

Kudu | 27 Feb – 10 Mar 2018
Set in the year 2030, the AmaXhosa Nation has taken over the Eastern Cape in an attempt to utilise the land for their own prosperity. Three Khoi descendants and their aging cow are migrating to the Eastern Cape. Drama ensues when they come to Intaba KaNdoda, a poverty-stricken community once ruled by the Khoi chief Ndoda. The Khoi descendants, having heard stories of how chief Ndoda was killed in a land dispute, have come to reclaim what is rightfully theirs- they have come to take the land from the AmaXhosa. Kudu is not only about people reclaiming their land, but also their customs, culture, languages and spirituality. It’s a fight for acknowledgement as existing, not extinct.

Kruger’s large-scale street and landscape works of the Mother City from the 1920s to 1960s form the backdrop to the women who take centre stage in this exhibition. The artist pays tribute to women from every sphere of society: women who participated in dockside liaisons, women who operated the ‘Sugar Houses’, and the imported female slaves – many of whom were housed at the Company Slave Lodge which can still be seen in Adderley Street.

Lost in Known Territory | 28 Feb – 24 Mar 2018
“Over the years I have collected and catalogued a large selection of images from various sources including books, magazines, websites and social media, personal photo archives, and many more. The figures in this body of work were created from fragments of these images, and their compositions reference certain historical paintings motifs.

This creates subjects that seem to be contextualised and somewhat recognisable, yet they passionately attempt to proclaim their own unique identities, despite our pre-conceived notions. This process examines how we impose identities upon others, and subsequently challenges fashionable standards of beauty and sexualisation.”

The Self: Our Best Friend But Also Our Worst Enemy
In February, Sheila Cowburn presents “The Self: Our best friend, but also our worst enemy’ as part of SAAJA’s monthly Analytical Psychology Lecture Series.

At birth, we have an original sense of wholeness, called the Self, and ego consciousness crystalizes out of this original feeling of unity. The Self is the ordering and unifying center of the total psyche (conscious and unconscious), while the ego is the center of the conscious personality, attending to the demands of external world to adapt and survive. Ideally, the ego takes guidance from the deeper Self in adapting to the external world.

Kudu | 27 Feb – 10 Mar 2018
Set in the year 2030, the AmaXhosa Nation has taken over the Eastern Cape in an attempt to utilise the land for their own prosperity. Three Khoi descendants and their aging cow are migrating to the Eastern Cape. Drama ensues when they come to Intaba KaNdoda, a poverty-stricken community once ruled by the Khoi chief Ndoda. The Khoi descendants, having heard stories of how chief Ndoda was killed in a land dispute, have come to reclaim what is rightfully theirs- they have come to take the land from the AmaXhosa. Kudu is not only about people reclaiming their land, but also their customs, culture, languages and spirituality. It’s a fight for acknowledgement as existing, not extinct.

Chris Valentine | SubText | 31 Jan – 24 Feb 18
In this latest body of work, Valentine continues his exploration of identity formation within a contemporary urban context. He focuses more closely, though, on the layered composition and intangibility of subjects as individuals, with indefinable personalities and histories.

Fanie Buys | This Man | 31 Jan – 24 Feb 18
This Man features portraits derived from family photographs and celebrity tabloids, in reference to Buys’s inner confrontation with the looming acquaintance he both seeks to impress and ignore in the process of unashamedly becoming himself: ‘This is a man I hate, and a man I hate with an especial glee because I find him incredibly attractive. These are not paintings of this man. I would never paint this man. I just told you I hate him.’

Lost in Known Territory | 28 Feb – 24 Mar 2018
“Over the years I have collected and catalogued a large selection of images from various sources including books, magazines, websites and social media, personal photo archives, and many more. The figures in this body of work were created from fragments of these images, and their compositions reference certain historical paintings motifs.

This creates subjects that seem to be contextualised and somewhat recognisable, yet they passionately attempt to proclaim their own unique identities, despite our pre-conceived notions. This process examines how we impose identities upon others, and subsequently challenges fashionable standards of beauty and sexualisation.”

Jamie Jupiter and Nick Turner
Jamie Jupiter and Nick Turner come together once more to bring us their Cape Town vibes. They met in the 90’s while playing for Honeymoon Suites and Sons of Trout respectively. Since then have been weaving a musical relationship through projects such as Mikanic and Korreltjie Kantel. Both are songwriters of a somewhat quirky nature. Nicks percussive guitar style is well suited to Jamie’s playful multi-instrumentation. Vocally, Nick can soar to higher places while Jamie brings in the bottom vooma. They’ll be sharing new works as well as re-visiting some of their old favorites, solo and together.

Daar is ‘n sprokie oor ‘n kat wat vir sy baas geluk gebring het… Net jammer sulke dinge gebeur nie in die regte lewe nie, want die vier lede van Klub Katastrofe, ‘n klub vir social misfits, kan doen met ‘n bietjie geluk, veral as dit by die liefde kom. Tydens die weeklikse vergaderings speel hulle Poker – ‘n gevaarlike spel van luck, chance, risk … en oor die beste maak van die hand wat vir jou gedeel is. Toe die kat egter op ‘n dag opdaag, begin die lede van Klub Katastrofe se geluk die een na die ander draai. Maar dis net ‘n storie… Of ís dit?

Why Not Socialism? A most unusual comedy. | 6 – 11 Feb 18
She suspects he’s up to mischief. He think she’s just selfish. Happy campers they are not. They just discovered they don’t like each others’ ideas much. Or are they trying to cover up a deep attraction they won’t admit to? Out in the wilds, a tent without poles and surrounded by laughing hyenas, they have to come to an understanding if they are to survive. Well, that’s what you’d think. But she has other ideas and he may have other agendas. Is this a camping trip from hell, or is hell in other people?

Once forced to “migrate” as slaves, Africans are now among the world’s least attractive migrants in the wealthy economies of the world, many built – not insubstantially – on African labour and mineral resources.

Fanie Buys | This Man | 31 Jan – 24 Feb 18
This Man features portraits derived from family photographs and celebrity tabloids, in reference to Buys’s inner confrontation with the looming acquaintance he both seeks to impress and ignore in the process of unashamedly becoming himself: ‘This is a man I hate, and a man I hate with an especial glee because I find him incredibly attractive. These are not paintings of this man. I would never paint this man. I just told you I hate him.’

Queens in Exile | until 10 Feb 18
WHATIFTHEWORLD is pleased to present Queens in Exile –  a major solo exhibition of new work by Athi-Patra Ruga.

Queens in Exile is about telling better stories. This isn’t simply a revisionist exercise, patching up inconvenient holes in the historical record. Instead, Ruga excavates collective memory and exclusionary national myth to rebuild both in wholly new shapes – to make a world where the exiled can reign. The result is a land of many queens, lost and found and forgotten.
