Ohne Dich : The Game

After a sold out run in Cape Town, the cult classic comedy franchise 'The Game' hits Jozi for the first time with their twisted tale of love and heartbreak 'Ohne Dich (Without You)'.


Hailed as ‘pure genius’, ‘superb’, and ‘funny as hell, brave as a motherfucker’, The Game is a new form of theatre. Improvised according to a set story-line and intentionally grappling with deep universal themes, every performance of The Game is one of a kind, creating the on-the-edge energy that has made this show notorious.


Legendary Coach Frik (Milton Schorr) and his new assistant Maachel (Andrew Roux) are reeling from broken hearts. On the brink of ending it all a cry to the heavens delivers to them an Angel (Mikki-Dene Le Roux), and the chance to wrest their sanity from a haze of romantic illusion, if they have the balls.


'The show laid bare the antagonism between the sexes. To be loved you must be exposed which, in turn, renders you unlovable. A harsh universe full of truths and residues. The work is raw and pure.' - Daniel


‘The Game is an education in why we spend too much time being precious about this theatre thing. Here’s to not concentrating but taking note. Here’s to making the first time every time. Here’s to honest frikin rightness. I need a soapbox, someone give me a soapbox…’ - Daneel.


‘Loved it completely! It was brutally funny and brave. What a wonderful night out. Thank you.’ - Carolyn.


‘Some interesting themes but should not be advertised as a comedy unless the nudity is deemed as the comedic aspect which is unintelligent to say the least.’ - Belinda.


‘Absolutely fantastic. Well done. Non-stop entertainment, very funny and quite emotional at times.’ – Fraser.


About ‘The Game’:

The Game is long form improvisation with balls. Set in a world where an ancient form of extreme handball has become a global obsession, The Game is a series of live events featuring Coach Frik du Perez (Milton Schorr), Tatiana Petrokova (Brendan Murray), Japie (Andrew Laubscher), Shannon (Adrian Collins) and Maachel (Andrew Roux). It is generally wholly improvised, rehearsal work revolving around character and relationship development, meaning events are unpredictable with participants simply playing The Game and letting what may unfold.


It was first performed in Cape Town in June of 2009 before travelling to the South African National Arts Festival, where it received the worst review in the history of humankind. ‘A waste of time and money..', 'I felt embarrassed to be a part of the human race…’, 'TOTALLY inappropriate' and 'no talent, no story-line, no game…' are just a few snippets from that landmark text. The cast immediately had t-shirts printed with the worst of the quotes, and continued to challenge audiences with the show’s unique, non-theatrical style.


In the words of the show’s creator, Milton Schorr: ‘We realised that the review was a shocked, purely honest response that gave us a perfect window into the dynamics of The Game. In rehearsal we discovered that the phrase “totally inappropriate” is exactly what The Game is about, because it means “honest”. From then on, whenever we worked on a new instalment, we asked ourselves “is this totally inappropriate, is this honest?” Honesty, we agreed, is what is often lacking on the stage with productions usually re-presenting old themes and styles, which is why honesty is shocking.’


Despite the original reviewer’s feelings other people did like the play, some even loved it. ‘Funny as hell, brave as a motherfucker’, ‘I have never seen a room full of people laugh this hard’, and ‘it was like a rollercoaster’, were just a few of the sentiments gathered at that first performance.


After a hiatus of nearly six years Milton Schorr and Brendan Murray, unable to shake the feeling that The Game still had an important place on the stage, decided to reprise the format in Cape Town with ‘The Game: Redemption’ (2015). ‘Shannon’s Tongue’ was also created (2015), featuring a new addition in the character of Maachel (Andrew Roux).


For ‘Ohne Dich’ Mikki-dene Le Roux joins the team as ‘The Angel’ and becomes the first ever participant with a real vagina (don’t tell Tatiana, she thinks her penis is a large clitoris and the anus is where everyone ‘does it’). The boys are happy to have a woman among them, they feel they may just be able to become men.

Dan Patlansky - Introvertigo

May 2016 sees the South African release of DAN PATLANSKY’s eighth studio album, entitled INTROVERTIGO. “Introvertigo: The dizziness and disorientation felt by an introvert after spending more than 5 minutes with an extrovert.” - Urban Dictionary. INTROVERTIGO was written over the course of two years - Patlansky immediately started writing this follow-up after 2014’s critically acclaimed Dear Silence Thieves (voted Best Blues Rock Album in 2014 by Blues Rock Review, USA). INTROVERTIGO, similar to Dear Silence Thieves, is produced by Theo Crous and was recorded at Bellville Studios, Cape Town. “Introvertigo describes a feeling I very often experience being an introvert. The concept behind the album is very much about my own insecurities. It’s about being an introvert in the music industry, my experiences in the industry and life in general. Even though the songs on the album have different topics and are not directly about being an introvert, It comes from an introvert’s point of view.” Patlansky used his personal life experiences as inspiration for the album to ultimately marry good songs with guitar playing. Working with Theo Crous for the second time, he describes the process as more streamlined this time around, which allowed space for a more creative environment. “Fans can expect a unique brand of Blues Rock born out of guitar playing whilst striving for strong songwriting. I am very excited and proud of this album, and honestly feel this is my best release to date.” Fresh off his November 2015 UK and European tour with Joe Satriani, and recently nominated as one of Classic Rock magazine’s hotly tipped new artists of 2015, Dear Silence Thieves received non-stop accolades and praise. Patlansky was also voted Male Artist of the Year 2015 by Blues & Soul Magazine, #4 of 10 Best Rock Guitarists In The World by Total Guitar Magazine in December 2015, as well as one of the Top 20 Blues Rock Artists by Blues Magazine. In February 2016, he received a nomination for Best International Solo Artist for the Planet Rock Radio ‘Rocks’ Awards. INTROVERTIGO will be released on CD and will be available for purchase on iTunes and at all Dan Patlansky shows.

Book Review Chasing by Miriam Shumba

For Miriam, the love of story telling came at a young age. She remembers her grandmother Theresa, sitting on a rukukwe and telling her and her siblings stories that began with “Paivepo,” which means Once Upon a Time. Her desire to construct a make believe world grew as she spent hours creating elaborate stories with her brother Michael at the age of eight. Next came the hours spent drawing and writing comic books. In High School Miriam wrote many stories and novels long hand in school exercise books and she enjoyed sharing these only with close friends. She had her first short story published in Drum Magazine in South Africa when she was in College. She also wrote for many magazines including Parade, Mahogany Magazine in Zimbabwe and Jive in the USA before writing her first novel. Her first published novel, Show Me The Sun released in 2010 is available in bookstores around the world Her second novel, That Which Has Horns was also released in 2010. Miriam Shumba was nominated for the Emma Awards as a debut author of the year in 2011.

Book launch Umbilicus

Are you adopted? Have you adopted a child? The this one is for you.


Paula Gruben is a writer living in Johannesburg. She was put up for adoption as a newborn in 1974, under the highly secretive closed adoption system, which was common practice for young, unwed mothers at the time. Paula had a happy, carefree childhood, but knowing virtually nothing about her biological roots resulted in a crippling identity crisis during her teenage years, manifesting in all forms of anti-social and self-destructive behaviour, and ultimately a deeply dysfunctional relationship with her adoptive parents. When she turned 21 in 1995, Paula was granted access to her file at the Durban Child and Family Welfare Society, which had facilitated the adoption. She met her birth mother shortly thereafter, and her birth father two years later. The seed for writing a book about her remarkable adoption journey was planted, but then life took over. It was only when faced with the shock of an unplanned pregnancy, just before turning 36 in 2010, that Paula could fully empathise with what both her birth mother and adoptive mother must’ve gone through at the time she entered their lives. The seed started germinating at a frantic pace and, armed with the wisdom of age, Paula knew it was finally time to tell the story. Umbilicus is her debut novel.



ABOUT THE BOOK

Up until now there has been precious little literature aimed specifically at adolescent adoptees and their parents. Paula’s book fills that gap, offering the reader a front-row seat to witness the very real psychological and emotional challenges experienced by many an adopted teen.


Sharon Van Wyk aka ‘The Blessed Barrenness’, 2015 Winner of Best Parenting Blog in the African Blogger Awards, gives Umbilicus “a solid five star rating” and says it is “a MUST READ for anyone involved in adoption or forming part of the adoption triad.”

GLAMOUR magazine says Umbilicus is “easy-to-read, emotive and real … a thought-provoking autobiographical novel that gives a glimpse into what life is like for an adopted child, and the mixed emotions that come along with it.”


Women24 calls Umbilicus “a remarkable debut novel from a very talented writer who will certainly become a powerful South African voice.”


As part of its Women’s Month festivities, Skoobs will be hosting the official launch of Umbilicus at 18h30 on Tuesday 2nd August, where Paula will be engaging in an author Q&A, followed by a book signing. If you are unable to attend the launch, but wish to get hold of a copy for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, the book will be available in-store from 2nd August onwards.

She Bellows

This women`s month, Soweto Theatre is thrilled to present 'She Bellows' directed by Zimkitha Kumbaca, starring Idabeth Raneke, Siyasangu Papu, Mbali Ngwenya, Kgaogelo Monama, Tumi Modise, Leorna Moya, Dineo Komane and Katlego Chale.


She Bellows is a satirical play written and directed by Zimkitha Kumbaca. It is about plastic dolls living in a Doll Factory owned by the Doll Master. The Doll Master introduces a Doll Expo that explores topics about women, men and life in general according to the modern woman.Through ridiculous yet relevant scenarios, She Bellows explores the uncensored thoughts, the inferiority complex and the issues of self worth of these women. These unapologetic thoughts open up a case of Pandora's Box that spark up debate and questions about certain imbalanced views of feminism and identity.She Bellows is more than just a satirical play; it is an experience of irresistible humour, unconventional theatre, thought provoking poetry and memorable enjoyment through dance and music.


Performance times:

Tuesdays, Wednesday`s, Thursday`s and Sunday`s: 15h00

Thursday`s and Saturday`s: 20h00

Ticket prices:

Ilembe

‘the axe that surpasses all other axes in sharpness’


iLembe, a new Sibikwa production, is a powerful play depicting the last few months of the life of Shaka kaSenzangakhona, better known as Shaka Zulu, whose statesmanship and vigour marked him as one of the most prominent Zulu kings.

Shaka Zulu has been called a military genius for his reforms and innovations and has been condemned for the brutality of his reign.

Because of the acceptance of the written word, historical facts based on the earliest writings by white traders and officials remained unquestioned for a long time. The oral tradition, shedding a different light on uShaka’s ruling, only gained respect after many years. These two perspectives are often contradictory and have set up contested positions around the famous warrior.

iLembe gives a twist to the traditional storytelling structure by unfolding the play through the eyes of Shaka’s interpreterJackot Msimbithi, the young Englishman Henry Fynn, Shaka’s attendant Mbopha and his sister Nomcoba while three female musicians playing traditional instruments form the chorus.

The music and dance accompanying this play is not just the expected Zulu-traditional, through re-interpretation, contemporary dance, originally composed music and soundscapes by Themba Mkhize are introduced, making iLembea unique theatrical experience.


Contradiction and tension are the hallmarks of good drama and iLembe promises to entertain while provoking food for thought.

iLembe is written & directed by the multi-award winning team of Smal Ndaba and Phyllis Klotz; the music is by two time SAMA award winner and acclaimed musician and composer, Themba Mkhize and the choreography by Oscar Buthelezi.



About Sibikwa Arts Centre

During apartheid and the years of struggle the performing arts were crucial as to how an alternative South Africa presented itself both inside and outside the country. The Sibikwa Arts Centre founded in Daveyton on Gauteng’s East Rand in 1988 was in the forefront of using the arts to validate the lives of ordinary people by creating plays which reflected their daily lives. In 1988 some members of the Daveyton community approached Smal Ndaba to initiate a youth arts programme for their children. Times were turbulent, state of emergency, continual civil strife and pupil’s erratic attendance at school. The community raised seed funding and thus Smal Ndaba spearhead an arts programme for young people in his home in Daveyton.Further funding was secured by Phyllis Klotz and Sibikwa came into being.

From the outset Sibikwa has been bringing theatre to the community and opening dialogue between all sections of the community. It uses performances, festivals and workshops to raise awareness of the role the arts can play in community development. In its twenty five years’ history the programmes at Sibikwa have serviced the South African arts community by developing theatre and arts practitioners from dancers, actors and musicians, to directors and arts administrators.

The Con-struction Cartel
Opening: Thursday 04 August 2016, 18H30
GoetheonMain, Maboneng Precinct

The Con is a journalism and art collective, and an "anti-media media platform" based in Johannesburg and Harare. According to its founders, it was created to counteract the South African media’s unchecked and unacknowledged race, gender and class bias. The Con-struction Cartel asks “What is being destroyed when White Capital Builds?” It is a forensic and social investigation of white capital’s anti-competitive behaviour and how that has directly affected the lives of ordinary, poor black South Africans, as well as the country’s developmental agenda, as it moves away from the inequalities of apartheid. By looking at how construction companies in South Africa collude amongst themselves - a methodology which finds its roots during apartheid - The Con aims to examine those aspects of apartheid which retain a strong presence in South Africa.


Including soundscapes by South African composer and songwriter Chris Letcher.

"Bambi still has teeth and she's cracking nuts!" SUNDAY TIMES


There seems to be no end to the appeal of Tannie Evita's blonde sussie! After her controversial appearances at recent festivals and her legendary theatrical soirees which won her the Best Cabaret / Fleur du Cap award in 2010, Bambi Kellermann will now perform where she belongs: in Fox Street

Johannesburg. The PopArt Theatre will host a three-performance season of the cabaret which critics have hailed as a milestone in musical satire and 'not to be missed!'


Bambi Kellermann (born Baby Poggenpoel) is the younger sister of Mrs Evita Bezuidenhout, the 'most famous white woman in South Africa'. Chalk and cheese. Whereas Evita has become a household name and favourite across political-party lines, Bambi smoulders in the background - not yet as famous

as her sister, but far more dangerous. She left Bethlehem in South Africa's Orange Free State in 1956 and went to Europe where she eventually married Joachim von Kellermann, a notorious nazi survivor of the Second World War.

In order to hide him from arrest, she took whatever job she could, in many cases verging on the pornographic. Eventually they reached Paraguay where von Kellermann found old SS friends. He became Minister of War. He has since died.


Bambi is back in the democratic South Africa. She runs a wine-tasting cellar in Paarl, sometimes referred to as nothing more than an excuse for a high-class brothel. It is known that she is HIV-positive. But with money and knowledge, she can live with her virus, as she did with her terrible secrets. She sings - well, she has been inspired to sing by many who also could not sing, but became famous for their singing: Marlene Dietrich,

Hildgarde Knef and Zarah Leander to name the German ones. She loves the music of Kurt Weill and Stephen Sondheim. And being an Afrikaner meisie at heart, finds any excuse to sing her favourite Boere Liedjies out of the FAK Sangbundel. But with a sinister twist.


This is what the Kabaret is about: her extraordinary story of survival told in song, her background echoed in familiar tunes, her inspirations gently mocked through canny impersonation. With Pieter-Dirk Uys as Bambi and with music arranged and played by Godfrey Johnson, the cabaret is performed in

three languages. Bambi's story is told in English, while the songs also include some in German and some in Afrikaans. This cabaret is not for the faint-hearted. It unites the acrid stench of the old Weimar Republic of the

1930s and the sexy rot of Hamburg's Reperbahn with the familiar aromas associated with 'ons eie' Voortrekker-camps and braaivleis-orgies.

THE ECHO OF A NOISE: A one man memoir

"The packed auditorium rose as one with a 'Bravo Pieter!' and the standing ovation was thunderous. An artist who can still cause a major traffic jam outside the theatre!" - Laetitia Pople (DIE BURGER 9 July 2015)


Pieter-Dirk Uys presented the world premiere of his new memoir 'The Echo of a Noise' at the National Arts Festival in 2015. Having performed alone on the stages of the world for well over seven thousand times, he has learnt that every show is the first and the last performance - because each audience demands and gets a different energy, topicality and excitement. He will present, for the first time in Johannesburg, his latest work at the PopArt Theatre on 6 and 7 August at 15h30.


Pieter-Dirk Uys doesn't glance back at the successes and failures that have strengthened his belief in a constant improvement of his work, but at those small signposts that throughout his life subconsciously have pointed him in

a right and original direction - from his father Hannes Uys, his mother Helga Bassel, his grandmothers, his teachers, his passions; Sophia Loren, censorship, false eyelashes and making a noise when everyone demanded silence.


In 'The Echo of a Noise', South Africa's foremost satirist sits on a

barstool, opens his heart and talks about his private and public life leading the audience into his inner- sanctuary with stories that can evoke surprise, laughter and tears.

Book Launch Confessions of a Dad

This book has nothing to do with accumulating wealth, but everything to do with helping children understand the value of money and developing healthy habits about money. Good parents teach their children the importance of eating well. They stress personal hygiene and insist on regular flossing. The majority of moms and dads also emphasize academic achievements and a good work ethic to guarantee a brighter future for their kids. Unfortunately, most well­ meaning parents have missed a vital ingredient necessary to help their kids become financially astute adults. This book will help parents (and young adults) with the confidence to talk about money and learn to be financially free. It is our job as parents to give our children the wings to thrive in the real world.

Opening: Think Global, Build Social!

The exhibit will be open to the public from 4 August, but the opening with the Curator, Andres Lepik will be on the 11th. Please join us.


The exhibition Think Global, Build Social! – Architectures for a Better World explores the theme of social responsibility in contemporary architecture. Conceived jointly by the Architekturzentrum Wien and the Deutsches Architekturmuseum, its tour to South Africa is supported by the Goethe Institut.


Architecture is currently in a state of crisis: on the one hand there is what is known as “starchitecture” – prestigious projects by acclaimed architects that serve to enhance the image of a few wealthy and politically influential clients – while on the other, there has been a massive rise in the number of building projects carried out in rapidly expanding megacities across Asia, Latin America and Africa with no architectural supervision whatsoever. In addition, an increasing number of people all over the world are living in slum conditions. The crucial question is therefore: what solutions can architecture offer to those segments of the global population that currently have no access to a well-designed environment?


Think Global, Build Social! showcases 12–15 current examples of an alternative approach to architecture – socially responsible practices that require greater personal initiative and creativity to develop low-cost architectural solutions that will improve living conditions for people in less privileged parts of the world. Many of the projects selected by curator Andres Lepik – which include schools, public spaces and residential buildings – have been developed through close collaboration with the future users and also incorporate local building traditions and techniques. Projects like these address the specific needs of those for whom (and with whom) they are being implemented, and thereby enable a two-way knowledge transfer. A number of common features can be seen in the various projects and approaches presented here, indicating that beyond the realm of “starchitecture”, a very different kind of movement has been emerging within contemporary architecture for quite some time – one that aims to tackle social issues within a global society.


The exhibition "Think Global, Build Social!" was developed from a previous exhibition presented in 2010 at The Museum of Modern Art in New York "Small Scale, Big Change. New Architectures of Social Engagement" which focussed on the social relevance of contemporary practices.

Chapter 2 : Section 9

Chapter 2 Section 9, refers to that section of our constitution guaranteeing the right to gender equality and sexual orientation. Phyllis Klotz, Artistic Director and co-founder of the Sibikwa Arts Centre, has always been at the forefront of highlighting woman’s issues through performance. She enters into a meaningful engagement with the phenomenon of sexual violence against gender-non-conforming women in South Africa. The inclusion of the equality act in the Constitution was globally seen as a victory for the LGBTIQ people, despite these progressive laws they are still unfairly discriminated against, too often manifesting itself in the form of violent crimes including rape and murder. Chapter 2 Section 9 is based on interviews with more than forty lesbian women, their families, perpetrators and police officers in order to get their view and understanding of hate-crime. The characters’ text is taken integrally from the interview transcripts.


These personal stories sometimes funny, sometimes sad, are interwoven with music and spoken word, bring a clear message that LGBTIQ persons are vulnerable to violence and discrimination contrary to the values of our constitution.


The Chapter 2 Section 9 cast consists of four young female actresses, two of whom trained at Sibikwa, accompanied by a young musician who composed original music for this play.


11, 12, 13 August at 8pm
14 August at 3:30pm.

Tickets are R 80 online. R 100 at the door.

Book Launch, Its up to Me by Megan Werner

Skoobs is proud to launch our youngest ever Author Miss Megan Werner.

Megan is:

I am your typical fourteen year old and attend High School Noordheuwel in Krugersdorp South Africa. I love modelling, hockey, swimming, fishing and motivational speaking. I have spoken on a few stages around South Africa, my biggest audience was about 5000 people at National Achievers Congress this year.


I have been interviewed on radio together with T Harv Eker’s lead trainer Doug Nelson. My dream is to become Miss Universe and my passions are modelling, inspiring and uplifting others.


My life motto, “It’s Up to Me,” was taught to me from an early age, and is actually the title of my first published book. I believe in taking responsibility for my life and my dreams and taking the lead when it comes to getting things done. “If you wait for others to do it for you, nothing will ever happen.”


Through leading and inspiring, I believe that I can too make a difference by inspiring and leading others.

Unfinished

1 band. 2 square meters. 3 dance makers. endless possibilities… UNFINISHED brings together dance and live music in unusual locations.


A platform to share and connect people through dance and music, UNFINISHED brings together Cape Town’s independent dance companies and a selection of classical and experimental musicians. This Darkroom Contemporary initiative invites dance makers to create short works outside of their comfort zones, in a short space of time, and using a small space to perform them in, while the musical input acts as the catalyst and driving force behind the performance.


Each dance is performed to live musical accompaniment, may only use an area of 2m², and is created using a maximum of four rehearsal sessions – hence “unfinished” to a degree.


Dancers and musicians never meet before the performance.Everything comes together on the night.

Expect the unexpected.

VOL. 1 features music by BENGUELA, with NEW WORLD DANCE THEATRE & YAOTL PHYSICAL ART COMPANY.

Dozi with the Story and Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival (dinner & show)

Hierdie eksklusiewe vertoning aangebied deur Music Profile Management, word opgevoer deur die immergewilde Dozi, soos net hy kan.


Dozi het hierdie vertoning in 2008 opgevoer en het die vertoning enorme sukses behaal. Soveel so dat ‘n CD en lewendige DVD opname van hierdie vertoning vry gestel was, wat beide lankal reeds goue status bereik het. Op publieke aanvraag die afgelope jare, is die tyd nou ryp en is die vertoning terug op die planke.

Hierdie produksie is nie ‘n “Dozi vertoning” nie, maar ‘n kragtoer van wereldtreffers bekend gemaak deur Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) wie tydens hulle loopbaan meer as 30 miljoen albums in die USA alleen verkoop het.

CCR wat reeds in die vroee 70’s op gebreek het, word terug in die lewe geroep met hierdie vertoning. Al CCR se treffers soos Cotton Fields, Who’ll stop the rain, Midnight Special, Proud Mary, Have you ever seen the rain en Bad moon rising om ‘n paar te noem, sal jou verseker op jou voete he van die eerste tot die laaste noot.

The CCR show is one not to be missed and tailor made for any corporate event, theatre and festival and a like.

A performance consisting of so many CCR hits will have you singing them long after the show has finished.

Vivienne Franzmann's "Pests"

Pink loves Rolly. Rolly loves Pink. And Pink loves getting bombed off her face.


Sisters from the same nest. Both trapped in a tiny rotting world. Both cuffed to a past that refuses to release them.


One wants out. The other needs her in.

Trouble is that when you complete each other, you're nothing on your own.


Starring two of South Africa's exciting talents, Ashleigh Harvey and Janna Ramos-Violante, directed by the accalimed actress and director Fiona Ramsay, this is a theatrical experience not to be missed.

Dr Victor & The Rasta Rebels - Dinner & Show

For more than 20 years Dr. Victor, Victor Khojane as he is also known, has been crafting and creating an uplifting, up tempo sound that has earned this singer, musician, songwriter and producer an enviable reputation on the South African music scene and many devoted fans all over the world.

Dr Victor began playing while he was still at school, in a band called CC Beat, mainly influenced by afro pop stars such as Blondie & Papa, Harare, Richard Jon Smith as well as American pop acts like the Jackson Five and others.

In 1984 CC Beat began playing in nightclubs in Johannesburg and managed to secure a recording contract with CCP (EMI) Label, the album was a flop.

They later signed to Dephon Records where they worked with top South African acts like Chicco, Evonne Chaka Chaka and Ricardo.

In 1991 the band signed with CSR Records where they recorded their first pop reggae album, a Tribute to Eddy Grant; that album was highly successful which featured their first hit single “Gimme Hope Jo’Anna”,

The record company suggested they change their name from CC Beat to Rasta Rebels, after debating for hours they settled for the name Dr Victor & The Rasta Rebels.

Dr Victor recorded a few solo projects such as Badayo, Hello Afrika and Shambala and established himself as both a front man and a producer.

In 1995 Dr Victor was invited to open for international stars such as Paul Simon, Gloria Estefan and Janet Jackson.

Dr Victor won two SAMA Awards, for the songs “Shambala” in 1995 and “Sunshine Daze” from his remixes album.

At the end of the 1990’s Dr Victor & The Rasta Rebels released “Best of the Rasta Rebels” which received double Gold status,

In 1996 the band released “If you wanna be happy” followed by “When Sombebody loves you back” which was played on all major radio stations,

Dr Victor released another three solo albums Stress, Faya and New Flame,

In the new millennium they toured France, the UK and the Middle East.

In 2010 the band released their “Greatest Hits Album” which was followed by a Greatest Hits Live DVD at Emperors Palace in 2011.

Fast forward… it’s 2014 and Dr Victor has released his highly anticipated album “I believe in love”

Dr Victor & The Rasta Rebels have cemented themselves as one of the number one concert bands in South Africa.

Fleetwood Mac Tribute Show

How do two of Joburgs loudest punk rock bands come to do a Fleetwood Mac show?


For years we have been playing with the idea of doing a Fleetwood Mac Tribute Show. This year SlashDogs spent a lot of their time building an acoustic show and Cortina Whiplash have been performing these shows alongside them.


When we are all get together with our acoustic instruments, as a family and make music and harmonizing together there is a magic that happens. We have come to call that 'Fleetwood Macking'. And since the beginning of this year we have been 'Fleetwood Macking' pretty hard.


We've invited some of our favourite singer songwriter friends to join us in paying tribute to a legendary band.

Book Launch Strong Medicine By Angela Meadon

Angela Meadon – Strong Medicine “What if your child was the medicine”

Angela has just written Strong Medicine: Body parts, murders, muthi murders and corruption, a brave author who has broached this subject and done extensive research into Sangoma’s muthi and murder. Each chapter is started off by a factual occurrence and then spins into Angela’s characters in her book.


Erin du Toit’s 9-year old daughter has been kidnapped by Johannesburg’s most powerful witch doctor. Can Erin save her child before she’s chopped up for muthi?


Erin’s first instinct is to go to the police, but the South African Police Force is paralyzed by corruption and overwhelmed by hundreds of open cases. Cases just like Erin’s.


Erin delves into the dark underbelly of Johannesburg to find the man who took her daughter. When she realizes that the police are protecting him, she must decide between disobeying a violent police force and giving up on her daughter


Angela has been writing stories for as long as she can remember. She writes novels and short stories with a dark fantasy/horror feel.


Angela also writes a popular blog about science and scepticism, and she is the managing editor of a fantasy magazine.


When she is not writing or taking care of her two children, she is reading or playing nerdy games with her husband (who Rick-rolled her at the altar).

Unfair Lady
POPArt Productions proudly presents

from the writer of The Epicene Butcher & El Blanco: Tales of the Mariachi


UNFAIR LADY

12 hysterical new stories in a hilarious and sometimes scathing attack on the women's magazine industry with all it's fallacies, inconsistencies and general nonsense.

*** NEW SKETCHES ADDED***

"Cringingly good. Painfully funny... a bad-ass send up of women's magazines" - Lauren Beukes


"This stunning little number from POPArt trawls the very fertile grounds of women’s magazines to create a riotous show that had me wincing and laughing hysterically from the Ed’s Letter to the Last Word. Hayleigh Evans and Rachael Neary are excellent in this rapid-fire satire"- Siobahn Cassidy


"Overall, the piece does not fail to entertain. And considering that this particular audience was comprised of locals, foreigners, theatre practitioners, and even the odd drunk—all of whom were in equal fits of laughter throughout—it’s safe to say that ‘Unfair Lady’ casts a wide, relatable net with its content, neatly packaged in a timely and ever relevant production" - Dave Mann, Artslink


25, 26, 27 August at 8pm
28 August at 3:30pm

Tickets : R 100 online. R 120 at the door.

Blackbyrd (Dinner & Show)

Beautiful, talented and popular all-girl group, BlackByrd have released their much-anticipated second album entitled ‘Home’. This hit-packed CD follows the big success of the friendly trio’s debut album ‘Strong’ which achieved Gold status, received five SAMA nominations, and contained five number one hit singles. Already the album received two SAMA award nominations this year for “Best Adult Contemporary Album” and “Best Duo or Group of the Year”. In addition, the album was also nominated for a SAMRO Wawela Music Award for the category “Best South African Duo/Group”. Most recently the band were nominated for three Wes-Kaapse Bokkies awards namely “Group of the year” (which they walked away with), “Music video of the year” and “Song of the year”. BlackByrd continue to make waves in the South African music scene with their professional and charming live performances, singing and playing guitars.

BlackByrd consists of Capetonian song-writer, lead singer and guitarist, Tarryn Lamb, her cousin Tamsyn Maker, also from Cape Town, who plays rhythm guitar and sings back-up vocals, and who was originally a dynamic award-winning dancer. Most recent member, Axene, second lead singer and lead guitarist, Vredenburg-born, was the youngest ever SAMA winner at just sixteen, with her solo debut album “16”. All three ladies bring different degrees of beauty, talent and personality to the trio, making for a dynamic cocktail with tremendous audience appeal. Leader Tarryn Lamb, a graduate and stand-out student of the Cape Town Waterfront Theatre School, brings her vast show-business experience to the group, and has an amazing ability to communicate with her audiences, ensuring great success with BlackByrd’s live events which goes way beyond three gorgeous young ladies delivering great original music.

BlackByrd’s second album “Home” demonstrates an exceptional musical maturity and growth in song-writing, and musical and vocal abilities, yet still contains the beautiful melodies, heartfelt lyrics and catchy tunes that South African music fans have grown to love. Once again lead singer, Tarryn Lamb, demonstrates her exceptional song-writing talents, composing the majority of the songs, whilst this time having input from the other two ladies, Tamsyn Maker and Axene Chaberski-Loubser on a few of the tracks. An added attraction on this excellent new collection is the song-writing contribution on four of the songs from Colin Vincent and Andrew Baird of Orangotang Music. Whilst Tarryn’s amazing vocals, the signature sound of BlackByrd, once again dominate the majority of the songs, this time she is sometimes joined on the occasional track by Tammy, and Axene who brings variety and youth appeal to BlackByrd’s established widely-appealing country cross-over adult-contemporary sound. The debut single and lead-off track entitled, ‘I Love You, I Just Simply Do’, was eagerly welcomed by radio stations across the country. The track reached no 1 on Jacaranda’s Kia Top 20 Charts where it stayed at no 1 for two consecutive weeks. The second single off the album titled “Better in the Morning” once again followed in the footsteps of its previous successful number 1 hits when it became their 7th number 1 single by topping the charts of Jacaranda’s Kia Top 20 charts. Their third single “You Shoot Me Down” is currently makings its way up Jacaranda’s Top 20 chart.

South Africans first became aware of BlackByrd when they released their first chart-topping single off the album, “All For Me”, which was aired extensively during Women’s Month of August last year, and again during the Sixteen Days of Activism Campaign against the Abuse of Women and Children during November/December. This track (the underlying message of which urges women to be true to themselves, and stand up for their rights, particularly against the abuse of women and children) ended 2012 as the top South African song of the year on Highveld 94.7 and Kfm 94.5, and reached the number four slot overall (including all international songs). Their second hit single, “I Feel Good Today”, reached the number 1 position on the Kia Take 40 SA Charts of both Highveld and Kfm, and Jacaranda’s Kia Top 20 Chart, and has the honour of being the theme song of the SABC3 morning television show, “Expresso”. “I Feel Good Today” was also nominated for a SAMA award in 2014 under the Kia Record of the Year category. The third single “From the Bottom of My Heart”, which features Craig Hinds from Watershed, also stayed true to the success of their first two singles when it shot to no 1 on Jacaranda, Highveld, Kfm and Algoa fm’s radio charts. Their fourth single “Keep On” reached no 1 on Algoa fm’s charts and their last single off the album “You’re The Reason Why” made its way onto Jacaranda’s Kia Top 20 charts.

BlackByrd is musically innovative with their interesting combination of pop, country and ballads. However, when they do functions, concerts and corporate events etc, the versatile ladies perform an amazing cross-section of a wide variety of musical genres to cover all tastes. Included are medleys of hits from the early sixties, and other popular eras, covers of the latest crowd-pleasing hit songs, as well as plenty of material inviting audience participation.

All in all, they provide a guaranteed formula for success that’s proved itself over and over, wherever the BlackByrd girls take to the stage to entertain . . . resulting almost always in repeat bookings from extremely satisfied clients. Numbered amongst their many valued clients are such heavy-weight corporates as Sun International, Tsogo Sun, Momentum, Bidvest, Pick ‘n Pay, Spar and Checkers to name a few. They have also proved to be very popular on major concert events such as 94.7’s Jo’burg Day and Kfm’s K-Day, the 702 concert as well as many high-profile events during the 2010 World Cup. In addition, BlackByrd have performed at many outdoor festivals, Mardi Gras, Mayoral Concerts, Christmas and year-end functions, etc. etc.

BlackByrd have also made a huge impact on the South African Afrikaans music market after having successfully performed at major Afrikaans festivals such as Afrikaans is Groot, Skouspel, Innibos, KKNK, Innibos, Hart van Windhoek, Jacaranda Day, Gariepfees, Namaquafees, Kirkwood Wildsfees, Windpompfees, Bakgat Country Opskop and Thabazimbi Wildsfees to name a few. They were also selected as support act for various top international performers like legendary British act Mike and the Mechanics, Italian singing sensation Patrizio Buanne and top British funk artist Jamiroquai, with concert-goers enthusing about their excellent live performances and clamouring to purchase their album at each show.

All in all, these three warm, friendly and talented young ladies have already proved that they have a great deal to offer the South African public, and have gained great credibility as a hard-working and interesting new force to be reckoned with. BlackByrd are certainly well on their way to becoming a household name.

Lost & Found and Gavin Edwards

Double header show with Lost & Found and Gavin Edwards (Runner up from The Voive SA) live on the Cresta Barnyard stage. Lost&Found is a product of years spent touring the world, in vans and clubs, in a youthful delirium. After more than 15 years playing in one of South Africa’s most loved and successful rock bands, The Parlotones’ Glen Hodgson takes front of stage in a new project – Lost&Found. Completing the duo is Jason Oosthuizen: one of the most explosive live drummers South Africa has ever seen. Jason also currently drums for The Black Cat Bones and has worked with Van Coke Kartel, Fokofpolisiekar & One Day Remains. Together the pair bring a performance that presents heart-wrenching lyrics and melody in a tight explosive rock package. Gavin Edwards, runner up from The Voice SA, makes his Barnyard debut at the Cresta branch on 5th September. “The Voice SA” favourite will be performing originals penned by the singer, as well as favourites from the TV show with his full band. This accomplished, professional singer/songwriter has had the great privilege to write alongside some of the biggest names in the industry. Before his entrance on The Voice SA, Gavin played live sessions for Brian Mcfadden (Westlife) on numerous occasions including Australia's Got Talent and Sunrise in Australia, as well as for Enrique Iglesias for the Child Line concert in Dublin.

More info please send an email to bookings@casatoscana.co.za

Table bookings of 8

********************

Koek en Tert is Susan Coetzer se 1ste eenvrouvertoning – ‘n komedie met ‘n hart wat jou sal laat skaterlag. Dis die vroulike teenvoeter vir “Groet die Grotman” en behoort deur elke vrou in Suid-Afrika gesien te word- asook die mans…. Koek en Tert is deur Susan Coetzer geskryf en Susan speel self die rol van die lywige size 44 Koekie Koekemoer (eienares van ‘n tuisnywerheid) wat met behulp van haar life coach (‘n mini trampoline, Lientjie) die fisiese en emosionele bagasie van 20 jaar tackle en probeer afspring- sodat sy wer ‘n ruite kan vang. “Koek en Tert” sal jou ten minste vir ‘n uur van al jou probleme laat vergeet!

Lag en die wereld lag saam met jou, huil en jy huil alleen.


....kommentaar van fans wat die verhoogstuk gesien het.....


Susan het die rol uitstekend vertolk! Ek dink dit was SOVEEL inspanning om te praat en te spring!!!, maar sy het haar goed gekwyt van haar taak. Dit was vir my snaaks omdat dit so WAAR is. Ek kon identifiseer met Koekie wat alleen die mas moet opkom! Ek sal graag vir my vriendinne vir wie dit nie lekker is om alleen te wees nie, kaartjies koop. Koek en Tert sit baie dinge in perspektief. Dis baie keer nie so sleg om alleen te wees nie!! - Judith

******

Baie gelag aangesien die vergelykings die spyker reg op die kop slaan. Ek kon my vereenselfwig met die verskille tussen man en vrou en die rol as vrou. Agter al die baie gelag is daar ‘n diep boodskap verskuil. Besef wie jy is in die lewe (die koek of die tert), wees gemaklik in jou “gebakte / gestolde vorm” , maar laat transformasie toe in jou lewe m.a.w kom uit jou gemaksone uit en probeer nuwe dinge. Transformeer en wees ‘n “koekerige tert” of ‘n” terterige koek”. Bou pret in die lewe in.

– En o ja, daar is “lientjie”……….baie snaaks

– Ek sal kaartjie koop vir al my ander vriendinne en selfs my ma om te gaan kyk en te lag en net om te ontspan. - Maxie

In bocca al lupo : Limited POPArt run

For a very limited time only, we're bringing it back to where it all started...


Jemma Kahn brings us the final instalment of her bewitching kamishibai series. What could follow on The Epicene Butcher and We Didn’t Come to Hell for the Croissants? An epic journey into the mouth of the wolf – a voyage of self-discovery, sexy Catholics and octopus biltong, spanning three continents.


In bocca al lupo premiered at the National Arts Festival 2016.


"Jemma Kahn, directed by Jane Taylor, outshines herself in this triumphant last instalment of the Kamishibai trilogy" - Sarah Roberson, The Critter


"The play has its sad moments (whose life doesn’t?), but mostly this beautifully illustrated tale has us laughing our way around the world. Her use of Kamishibai, a form of Japanese street theatre where a sequence of images are displayed in a frame to help tell stories, is as slick as it is visually pleasing" - Siobahn Cassidy, The Citizen

Written by : Jemma Kahn & Tertius Kapp

Join us for a stripped down evening where Dan will perform some of his greatest song solo/acoustic in a more intimate setting.

The much loved South African husband and wife duo, the Bottomless Coffee Band, will be performing at the Centurion Theatre for the first time on 10 September 2016. After releasing their debut album titled, “Room with a View” back in November 2014, they made a musical mark in the South African industry, which led to a full- time music career for the pair. At a rather young age, both Lourens and Esté Rabé gave up their corporate careers to pursue, what they believe is their deeper calling and passion – to make music together.

Leah (vertoning & Aandete)

Leah by Die Blou Hond Julle het Leah leer ken as die fikse onnie, Juffrou de Bruin, in die bekende musiekfilm, "As Jy Sing", waar sy ook haar vernuf as sangeres gewys het en saam met Bobby van Jaarsveld “Ek Moes Jou Gesoen Het” die land aan die brand gesing het. Met die uitreiking van Leah se heel eerste album, 'Wonderwerk', was dit reeds duidelik dat daar 'n nuwe, vars stem op die afrikaanse musiektoneel verskyn het waarmee daar gewis rekening gehou sou moes word. Die album is sielskos en die lirieke is verseker iets om na te luister. Haar eerste enkelsnit "Met Jou Klere Aan", het almal aan die dans gehad en die video is al meer as 300 000 keer gesien op Youtube. Met haar tweede enkelsnit "Meer As Niks" bewys Leah dat sy nie as sangeres onderskat sal word nie en hierdie epiese ballade raak die hartsnoere. “Volmaan” is reeds besig om in almal se harte (en op die trefferparades) te klim en is een om te onthou! Leah is hierdie jaar vir 4 Ghoema-Toekennings genomineer en het as Bok Radio se 2015 Nuweling van Die Jaar weggestap. Leah sing nie ook net afrikaans en oorspronklike musiek nie, sy het musiekteater studeer en al menigte vertonings saam met Mike McCullagh gedoen, soos onder andere '60 Something', 'Station 70' en 'That 80's Show'. Dus sal Leah se vertoning aanklank vind by jonk en oud en sy beloof om iets te bied vir alle musieksmake! Sy word op kitaar begelei, so verwag ook ‘n hele paar verrassings. Kom leer ken die borrellende, passievolle en talentvolle sangeres, dit gaan 'n onvergeetlike aand wees!

Prime Circle (Show & Dinner)
Prime Circle Biography

Since they first burst out of Witbank some 11 years ago, Prime Circle’s career has been an inspiration that has spawned hundreds of garage bands across South Africa, with starry-eyed young rockers hoping that one day, they might make it big the way Ross Learmonth, Dirk Bisschoff, Marco Gomes, Neil Breytenbach and Dale Schnettler did.

Their 2003 debut, “Hello Crazy World”, rocketed to gold status in South Africa, with “Live This Life” (their 2005 follow-up following suit). Singles such as “Hello”, “Live This Life” and “My Inspiration” earned heavy rotation on South African radio.

2008 saw Prime Circle release “All or Nothing” which raked in the first two Prime Circle South African Music Award nominations of their career, for Record of the Year and Best Rock Album (English).

To date, the first single “She Always Gets What She Wants” has received over 789 000 YouTube hits - the most-viewed South African rock song ever.

“Jekyll & Hyde”, unleashed in 2010, was mixed in Los Angeles by Kevin Shirley. New York-based Sterling Sound mastering engineer George Marino laid the final touches.

The first two singles from the album “Breathing” and “Turning in My Sleep” were each nominated for the SAMA for MTN Record of the Year in 2011.

In March 2011, Prime Circle won the Best International Breakthrough Act at the MK Awards.

The band released their fifth studio album, “Evidence” in September 2012. The first single “Time Kills Us All”, debuted on regional and national radio in South Africa to widespread acclaim. The 13-track album features the masterful recording wizardry of Theo Crous.

In May 2014, Prime Circle released their 6th album, ‘Let The Night In’ before embarking on one of their biggest European and South African tours.

Says Ross Learmonth, “Without the fans, we would be nothing. And I don’t ever want to do anything else. Creating music for a living is a privilege, and we never forget that.”

Prime Circle are: Ross Learmonth (vocals and guitar); Marco Gomes (bass); Dale Schnettler (drums); Neil Breytenbach (keyboard) and Dirk Bisschoff (guitar).

Steve Hofmeyr #ReadmyMind (Uitverkoop)

Die sjarme van daai ou Countryliedjies wat deur ons koppe bly draal, ontwyk niemand nie. Vir sy CD en toer IF YOU COULD READ MY MIND het Steve Hofmeyr uiteindelik sy ou Country gunstelinge afgestof vir 2016. Sommer ook sy kitaar, leer stewels en sy ou stetson nadergetrek vir 'n Country CD wat hy al 30 jaar lank wou maak. En van die wysies wat geensins Country is nie, soos die wysies van Creedence, Cliff Richard, Steve Perry en Bob Dylan, het Steve Countryliedjies gemaak. Maar die grotes is almal daar. Kenny Rogers se THE GAMBLER, die Bellamy Brothers se IF I SAID YOU HAD A BEAUTIFUL BODY, Glen Campbell se RHINESTONE COWBOY, die Eagles se HEARTACHE TONITE en Crosby Stills&Nash se TEACH YOUR CHILDREN, 'n trefferduet saam met Coleske. Wie wil nie DRIFT AWAY van Dobie Gray en die Staccato's se CRY TO ME op "repeat" los nie. Maak die 90 minute vol met 'n paar van sy eie Afrikaanse treffers (en wie weet, dalk die Bloubul...) en jy kry die vintage Steve Hofmeyr konsert. Lekker lag, lekker onthou, lekker verlang, lekker saamsing en lekker dans, as jy wil.

Swing City - SA's Sexiest Swing Act
R150pp

Swing City was borne of the love of swing music from three of South Africa’s most loved artists. A harmless side comment from one musician to another ended up in a serious discussion about producing a three piece singing group, backed by a full jazz orchestra and band, celebrating their love of jazz, swing and blues, but adding a modern day twist to the genre. Swing City consists of Lonehill Estate’s Nathan Ro, whose love for swing music has always engrossed the pop/ rock singer’s iPod; Graeme Watkins, whose background in music and theatre started as a swing singer long before his success on Idols or in his indie rock band “The Graeme Watkins Project”; and Loyiso Bala, whose classically trained background in music saw the singer as part of the TZKee crew, the Bala brothers in classical song and in the pop world in his own successful career. The three singers, already friends, jokingly commented what fun it would be to start a swing band. It would be years later, that they took the idea seriously, got into a rehearsal space with their friends from Figure of 8 productions and Swing City was born! 2014 Was a fresh start with Swing City teaming up with 6 time Naledi Nominee Bryan Schimmel as music director.” 2015 saw this dynamic trio take on recording their Debut Album “Well Swung”, this fresh album has been selling exceptionally well, fulfilling a major gap in the South African market. On the album, one can find collaborations featuring the likes of Lloyd Cele, Shoowop Shop and Chiano Sky. 2016 also launches exciting LIVE collaborative options featuring the guests that can be seen on the album.

Book Launch The Joy of Comfort Eating

It’s the worst day of Charlie Everson’s life. Not only can she no longer fit into her clothes—disaster for any public relations director—but also her first love, the sexy super-successful Brian Tendai, is her new CEO, the last person she ever expected to run into. Seeing him again tumbles Charlie back into her past. There are still so many unanswered questions: he’s convinced she left him, she’s convinced he left her. Charlie minimizes the ‘ex’ factor. Tell that to her emotions that are running wild.

But Brian’s not there to rekindle their romance. He’s overseeing Queenswood Communications’ recent merger after a hostile takeover. Guess whose name is at the top of the list?

They agree to one night together, just the one, then it’s back to business as normal. Or is it?

Koos Kombuis (Aandete & vertoning)

Koos Kombuis (gebore André le Roux du Toit, November 5, 1954) is ‘n Suid-Afrikaanse musikant en skrywer. Hy verwerf bekendheid as deel van ‘n groep anti-establishment (sogenaamd alternatiewe) Afrikaanse musikante wat in die laat 1980’s die kampustoer “Voëlvry” aanpak. Ander musikante wat deel uitgemaak het van hierdie musiekbeweging was Johannes Kerkorrel en James Phillips. Die Voëlvry-groep het sterk standpunt ingeneem teen Apartheid en die regerende Nasionale Party.

Koos Kombuis het sedertdien die status van legende in Afrikaanse kultuurkringe bereik. Hy is ook bekend as rubriekskrywer vir verskeie Suid-Afrikaanse publikasies (o.a. Rapport). Uit sy pen het twee outobiografiese boeke, romans, digbundels en rubriekbundels verskyn (Sien literatuurlys hier onder).

Koos noem Bob Dylan, Neil Young, George Harrison en John Lennon as musikale invloede. Sy musiekstyl is rou en eerlik. Hy tree meestal solo op en begelei homself op kitaar, maar word soms bygestaan deur wêreldbekende musikante soos Schalk Joubert, Melissa van der Spuy, Albert Frost, Nicole Holm en Kevin Gibson.

Koos Kombuis word beskou as een van die beste liriekskrywers in Suid-Afrika. Een van sy bekendste liedjies, “Lisa se Klavier” is opgeneem deur Laurika Rauch en The Parlotones en ook vertaal in Frans, Portugees en Engels. Die Belgiese sanger, Stef Bos, vertolk die Koos Kombuis-liedjie “Onder in my Whiskeyglas” en die twee is mede-skrywers van die liedjies “Het Avondland” en “Die Duiwel en God”.

Lebogang Mogashoa in "The Real Dirt"

Within a two year period that coincided with his thirtieth birthday, Lebogang Mogashoa moved countries, lost a parent, and changed careers. He insisted that he was fine; all he needed was chardonnay, an entire carrot cake and a good night’s sleep - every single day. Until he was mugged at gun point just before his thirty-first birthday. He suddenly found himself buried under the weight of three decade’s worth of terrifying experiences. In The Real Dirt, he examines some of those experiences through gratifyingly personal and hilarious stories that arrive at a satisfying moment of human connection, and an Apple product.

Prime Circle - Let The Night In

Prime Circle are releasing a deluxe edition of their acclaimed 2014 album Let the Night In, to coincide with their European tour that includes festival appearances alongside Iron Maiden, Garbage, Slayer and Iggy Pop. Let the night in – Deluxe Edition is the band’s first official European release, and will go on sale globally on Friday, 13 May 2016 ahead of their multi-date tour of Germany and Austria. It features the 13 tracks from the two-time South African Music Award-winning album Let the Night In, including the singles Gone and Doors, as well as four new original songs and a live, unplugged version of the title track, Let the Night In. The first single, Ghosts, will be released on radio on 4 April 2016, accompanied by a “haunting” music video that marks the co-directorial debut of Prime Circle frontman Ross Learmonth. “I worked alongside Gavin Davis, who is my partner in the concept studio MadHouse,” explains Learmonth. “Sometimes other people don’t ‘get’ you, so we decided to just do it ourselves. The song is about how people get over things like a bad relationship or depression, and stand up and move on again.” He says there is a ghostly element to the music video, which was shot on 4K ultra-high definition digital film and features a “beautiful” pas de deux between two of the country’s top female ballet dancers in addition to a dynamic performance by the band. The release of the 18-track Let the Night In – Deluxe Edition sees a further progression of the band’s ever-evolving rock sound, which has ventured into bold new places since Prime Circle was formed 15 years ago. “The album marked a change of style for the band, and the extra tracks add a little more grit,” says Learmonth. “They are certainly not B-sides – they take the album to another level.” Fans who already own the Let the Night In album have the option to purchase the individual new tracks online, but Learmonth says the principal aim of the deluxe edition is to make a strong impression on the European market. The band has been making steady inroads on the continent, touring there regularly over the past few years, but is hoping to reach new audiences during their upcoming appearances on the 2016 European summer festival circuit. Prime Circle will be performing in Germany at the Rock im Revier festival in Dortmund on 26 May and the Rockavaria festival in Munich on 28 May, before heading to Austria for Rock in Vienna on 4 June. Aside from appearing on the bill at these massive alternative rock/metal festivals, the band will also perform in Hannover, Dresden, Leipzig, Flensburg, Hamburg, Freiburg, Saarbrücken and Mannheim in May and June. • Prime Circle are: Ross Learmonth (guitar and vocals); Marco Gomes (bass); Dale Schnettler (drums); Neil Breytenbach (keyboards) and Dirk Bisschoff (guitar)

Unable to deny her feelings for Alaric any longer, her desperation to save him will ultimately be what will kill them both. For a super cop, her judgement in men has truly failed her. And if matters of the heart weren’t distracting enough, she has to survive the next twenty-four hours without killing someone. Finding herself a fugitive in a foreign country, she has to rely on her charming personality, which she has long since learned to turn on when needed. But with her distinctive South African accent, and stunning good looks, she is at risk of being turned in to the authorities at any moment. With nowhere to run, she has no alternative but to face the peril head on, and ensnare the evil that is chasing her down.

The release of the 18-track Let the Night In – Deluxe Edition sees a further progression of the band’s ever-evolving rock sound, which has ventured into bold new places since Prime Circle was formed 15 years ago. “The album marked a change of style for the band, and the extra tracks add a little more grit,” says Learmonth. “They are certainly not B-sides – they take the album to another level.” Fans who already own the Let the Night In album have the option to purchase the individual new tracks online, but Learmonth says the principal aim of the deluxe edition is to make a strong impression on the European market. The band has been making steady inroads on the continent, touring there regularly over the past few years, but is hoping to reach new audiences during their upcoming appearances on the 2016 European summer festival circuit. Prime Circle will be performing in Germany at the Rock im Revier festival in Dortmund on 26 May and the Rockavaria festival in Munich on 28 May, before heading to Austria for Rock in Vienna on 4 June. Aside from appearing on the bill at these massive alternative rock/metal festivals, the band will also perform in Hannover, Dresden, Leipzig, Flensburg, Hamburg, Freiburg, Saarbrücken and Mannheim in May and June. • Prime Circle are: Ross Learmonth (guitar and vocals); Marco Gomes (bass); Dale Schnettler (drums); Neil Breytenbach (keyboards) and Dirk Bisschoff (guitar)

Book Launch Cirque

Cirque is the new psycho-erotic thriller from author Ashleigh Giannoccaro, Act 1 releasing September 2016.


He is her living nightmares, all her fears brought to life.

She is all his dreams come true, his reason for living.


But, no one loves the clown. No one.


Cirque ~Act 1

A boy looked in a window, to see a naughty show

Through the pane of pain, the master clown did blow

The circus is a holy tent, the keeper of my rhyme

Where I forged my chains, creating this pantomime

Pretending to be normal, I wait until after dark

Then I paint the frown on, get a whore from the park

At the bottom of that bed was a darling in a chest

She watched with big eyes, horror hooking her from rest

She dances for the maniac, twirling on her strings

I will make her mine, sharing damaged things

I will be her riddle, she will help me grin

So why does she run away, she has to let me in

No one loves the clown, not even the midget

We’ve gone too far, she will know my secret

Love can break the hardest mask, I know this to be true

Nightmares have hearts too, I only needed you

Joshua na die Reën - Aandete & vertoning

Joshua na die Reën is ‘n sanger, musikant en liedjieskrywer woonagtig in die Jakaranda stad, Pretoria, in Suid-Afrika.

Dié verhoogskunstenaar het sy formele opleiding in 2010 voltooi by die Universiteit van Tshwane en is as top Jazz student aangewys. Hy glo die kuns van liedjies skryf lê daarin om nie net oor die liefde te sing nie, maar ook oor jou ervarings en dinge waarmee jy jou kan vereenselwig. Hy wil hê sy musiek moet mense weer laat droom en daarom bevat dit uiteenlopende temas – van vrolik tot diep en sielvol. Die musiek is tydloos en inspirerend. Alhoewel die fondasie klavier- en kitaargedrewe snitte is, het dit ook ‘n invloed van R&B en rock.

Die kombinasie van Joshua na die Reën se kontemporêre aanslag en die teenwoordigheid van tydlose musikale elemente soos strykinstrumente en die klavier, sit hom op gelyke voet met kunstenaars soos One Republic, Coldplay, Lana del Rey, Joe Niemand, Riana Nel, Die Heuwels Fantasties en The Parlotones.

Sy debuut album slegs getiteld, Joshua na die Reën, is gedurende 2013 uitgereik en het behoorlik vir ‘n ontploffing op die Afrikaanse musiektoneel gesorg! Hierdie album staan ook tans op die drumpel om goue status te verwerf.

Hyis aangewys as dieNuweling van die JaarenBeste Kontemporêre manlike kunsteaar tydens die Suid-Afrikaanse Ghoema Toekennings in 2014 en het ook die toekenning asBeste Nuwelingby Huisgenoot se Tempo toekennings in 2014 otnvang. Gedurende 2015 is hy vereer met ‘n Woordfees toekenning virBeste solo kunstenaar. Sy liedjie Lig op die Horison is ook gebruik in kykNET se HD veldtog bekendstelling en het hy ook die tema-lied vir die program NAWEEk op SABC 2 geskryf. Hy het reeds op van die grootste verhoeë in Suid-Afrika opgetree wat insluit Ghoema & Huisgenoot Toekennings geleenthede sowel as Huisgenoot Skouspel, Absa KKNK en Innibos en maak gedurende 2015 weer so!

Joshua na die Reën het ook die ou bekende treffer, Voshaarnooi, nuwe lewe gegee toe hy dit weer opgeneem het en sy eie weergawe daarvan in die loket treffer fliek, Ballade vir ‘n Enkeling gebruik is. Hy het ook die tema-lied ALLES GEE, vir die fliek, Hollywood in my Huis, wat op 26 Junie 2015 uitreik geskryf.

Hy vertrek aan die einde van Augustus 2015 na Holland waar hy op uitnodiging vir die eerste keer in die buiteland sal gaan optree.


Sy musiek speel gereeld op van die grootste radiostasies in Suid-Afrika en hy kan ook gereeld gesien word op nasionale televisie.

Hy is tans druk besig om te werk aan sy tweede album wat in Februarie 2016 uitgereik word.

At 24 years old, Holly Scallanger has the perfect life. Everything a girl could want; a beautiful man, a stunning home, as well as being in the midst of preparing for the wedding of her dreams. This all vanishes the night she catches her fiancé, Brandon Morgan, in bed with her worst nightmare, Donna Sinclair, just a week before Holly is set to walk down the aisle. Attempting to recover from his betrayal, Holly swears off the affections of men in order to pick up the pieces of her crumbling life. Unfortunately, meeting Jake 'Hooligan' Peters is not part of her plan. The tall, dark-haired and handsome as hell med student, sweeps Holly away from the pain of her past and reveals to her the bright future that lies ahead. That is, until she falls pregnant just as Jake begins his internship at P&E; his family's hospital. Will this love at first sight lead her to the fairytale she has always craved? Or, will she fall victim to a betrayal of the heart yet again?

Elvis Blue - Aandete & Vertoning #uitverkoop

The past four years have been some of the busiest, most rewarding, and award winning years in Elvis Blue’s more than 14-year career in music. With album sales in excess of 100 000, eight Top Ten radio singles, and more than 500 live performances to his credit Elvis Blue is reckoned as one of the most successful artists in our country. In 2010, Elvis was the winner of M-Net’s SA Idols and did the unselfish gesture by sharing half his winnings with runner-up Lloyd Cele. Elvis’s first album released after this achievement today enjoys platinum sales status with sales in excess of 50 000 copies as well as a 2012 SAMA for Best Adult Contemporary Album. To this day the artist continues to gain acclaim both with audiences and critics as he is recognised for his performing and song writing talents. 2013 had Elvis and his album JOURNEY nominated for another 3 SAMA’s, Male Artist Of The Year, Album Of The Year ( “JOURNEY”) and Song Of The Year (“LIFELINE”). September 2013 saw the release of “AFRIKAANS”, an album that made Elvis the first Afrikaans artist to scale the Top Ten of the iTunes Store chart - an honour he managed on the first day of the Album’s release. This album was certified a Gold-selling album a mere two months later and Elvis received 5 Ghoema nominations in 2014, walking away with two, for BEST MALE ARTIST as well as ALBUM OF THE YEAR, the highest honours in Afrikaans music. Hot on the heels of this achievement was yet another SAMA for this home grown talent, for BEST CONTEMPORARY ALBUM and then a TEMPO award, once again giving “AFRIKAANS” the title of Album of the Year. Elvis Blue is a man with a mission -- and no doubt this gifted artist and songwriter will enchant more listeners this year with his magical music and create more and more number one hits!

Book Launch Dead of Night

In a dark and desolated After Earth, love still does exist, but the cost of bearing such a flaw is death. World War III has left Earth in utter turmoil. People’s beliefs are said to be the cause of the worldwide destruction. After The Clearing new laws are set about - to show certitude in anything besides the law is weak and chargeable as mutiny. To be illogical and have faith in religion is illegal, to be limitless is dangerous. And Illness is seen as a defect – all flaws that are inexcusable. But to love is the greatest betrayal of all man kind. It is a fault the world has long forgotten and punishable by death, a fatal risk Aecker and Opel are fully prepared to take - because in love there is freedom. But how far can they push back before it claims their lives and of those they care about?
