Johannesburg-based artist, Lebohang Kganye, was announced as the winner of the 2017 Sasol New Signatures Art Competition. Kganye won the coveted award for her animated film ‘Ke sale teng’, which means ‘I’m still here’ in Sesotho. The film confronts how family photo albums no longer have a fixed narrative but instead open us to reinterpret our past and even interrogates our need to preserve a certain narrative.

‘Sometimes we rely on the family photo album as a way to understand what family is meant to be,’ said Kganye. ‘What we often land up with is a grouping of images that have been constructed, and perhaps do not account at all for the histories and memories that are connected to that album.’

Through the use of silhouette cutouts of family members and other props in a diorama, Ke sale teng’ confronts the conflicting stories, which are told in multiple ways, even by the same person – memory combined with fantasy.

As the winner of Sasol New Signatures, Kganye walks away with a cash prize of R100 000 and the opportunity to have a solo exhibition in 2018 at the Pretoria Art Museum.

Sasol New Signatures Chairperson, Dr Pieter Binsbergen, said most of the finalists’ works harnessed materials of multisensory nature, ‘holding the viewer captive for longer periods of time, thus driving home the pressing social, political, and environmental issues South Africa grapples with.’

This year’s Sasol New Signatures theme was BE DISCOVERED. The theme sought to challenge artists to come to the fore, and showcase their talent to in the country’s art-loving public. ‘The works ­of the 2017 Sasol New Signatures winners and finalists has lived up to the history and intention of the competition, and showcases what South African artists are capable of,’ said Charlotte Mokoena, Sasol Executive President for Corporate Affairs and Human Resources. ‘Noteworthy this year has also been the diversity of the submissions received. This demonstrates that Sasol New Signatures is making progress in reaching emerging artists from all walks of life.’

Coming in second place was Sthenjwa Luthuli from KwaZulu-Natal. He wins for his woodcut work titled Umbango, which means ‘conflict’ in isiZulu. The work reflects the cultural politics within traditional Zulu rituals and customs in a contemporary family setting.

The other 5 Merit Award Winners are:

Sasol New Signatures 2016 overall winner Zyma Amien Marker Amien’s solo exhibition examines experiences of garment workers in post-apartheid South Africa and asks questions about the impact of the global village and why workers remain predominantly female. My interest in this project is rooted in my direct relationship with the many women who work as seamstresses in the South African garment and textile industry. The demographics of the clothing and textile industry have been shaped by the segregationist policies of apartheid, the legacies of which are still imprinted on the lives of the women who continue to work in the factories.

Willemien Rust (née Heyns) is a South African singer-songwriter, with a French alter ego “Philomène”.  In 2013, alongside her master studies in French, she launched two solo music projects with a strong focus on collaboration. She composes alternative Afrikaans music in her mother tongue and performs French and francophone covers in collaboration with (“&-ing with”) other musicians.

As from 2017 Willemien is freelancing on different musical projects in the Afrikaans and French artistic scene in South Africa- singing, composing, translating and acting. She is also extending the work she did at the University of Pretoria as French lecturer (2011-2016) by presenting creative writing workshops to foreign language French learners in different parts of the country- giving students the opportunity to learn about the francophonie through music.

Singer/songwriter from Pretoria, Adelle Nqeto began her music career as one half of the duo Flint, meet Spark, which was seen playing major national festivals (Oppikoppi, Rocking the Daisies, Splashy Fen) between 2012-2015. In 2013, Adelle crossed paths with Jeremy Loops, who featured her on his album ‘Trading Change’, on his track titled “Lonesome & Blue” which was released in 2014. In 2015, she decided to take a leap and start a solo project.  She’s since played many local venues and festivals including Mieliepop, Splashy Fen, Lush as well as Oppikoppi festivals in 2016. Her first single “Make Something Beautiful” was released in October 2016, with her debut EP titled “Lights” released on the 31 March, 2017.

Born in 1987 in Kempton Park, South Africa, Pieter Bezuidenhout devotes most of his time composing choral and instrumental chamber music. At the age of 17, he received his first prize at the Tri-Arts National Competition (RSA) for his piece Fantasia for Solo Piano. The University of Pretoria Symphony Orchestra premiered his Concertino for Piano and Orchestra in 2010, for the inauguration of the new Vice-Principal and Chancellor of the University of Pretoria, with Bezuidenhout as soloist.

Bezuidenhout is regularly commissioned locally as well as internationally to write works for ensembles ranging from instrumental chamber groups to festival choirs. His works have been performed in Graz, Washington, Bratislava, Istanbul, Tokyo and by the Choir of the Music Conservatory in the Canary Islands to great acclaim. His choral piece Stardance was chosen by the European Academy of Choral Conductors as a prescribed work for the Choral Symposium held in Graz, Austria in 2012. As well as frequently giving workshops on his music, Bezuidenhout’s choral works are regularly chosen as prescribed works for South African choral competitions. Currently, he is appointed as the choral director of Loreto Convent Girls’ Choir, Magalies High school choir, Oos-Moot High school choir, The Theiler Vocal Ensemble and the Centurion Cantus Chamber Choir.

James Robb is a multi instrumentalist/sound artist/filmmaker/poet and composer from South Africa. Current music projects include: Willemien/Philomène &, Adelle Nqeto, Bied Lied, The Trotting Fox and The james Robb.

James is a founding member of forte blue music school, an initiative to create jobs for artists that educate/incubate aspiring artists. forte blue functions like a plugin for a school to enhance existing cultural activities and quality tuition the school and it’s surrounding community.

ARTE (Presented by: The Method Actors) @ Brooklyn Theatre
Sep 30 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Art is a lie that makes us realise the truth
Presented by: The Method Actors

 

 

 

Concept

Classical music will interlink with monologues from playwrights like Shakespeare, Ibsen, Chekhov, and Miller. These two performing art forms will work together to create one cohesive exploration into the story of artistic creation, the nature of performance and pretence, and the use of art in deciphering the highs and lows of the human experience. Six actors will perform various monologues, and one dialogue. These separate pieces will be linked together by classical music interludes, with some musical improvisation as and when necessary.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Press Release:

Arte. The Italian term for collective artistic creation. Combining timeless classical music with monologues from some of the world’s most famous and influential playwrights, such as William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire, and Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, this production will take audiences on an emotive journey through art and the human condition. With a talented ensemble cast of young actor-alumni from the Method Actors (MATC) and classical pianist, Willem de Beer, this production promises to be both lively and thought-provoking. Arte is a celebration and tribute to some of the greatest dramatists and composers who have challenged and inspired generations. It also reminds us of man’s ability to transcend a largely tragic existence through the creation and beauty of art. Join MATC and Stephanie van Niekerk, in conjunction with Brooklyn Theatre and DALRO, for this exclusive GauFestival show: Saturday, 30 September 2017, 13:00, Brooklyn Theatre.

Blurb: Combining music and monologues, the Method Actors, in association with Brooklyn Theatre and DALRO, presents a challenging, tragic, and ultimately triumphant exploration of art and the human condition.  Promotional Poster Information

POPPEMEESTER Ingrid Jonker – deur Lizanne Barnard @ Brooklyn Theatre
Sep 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

POPPEMEESTER
Saterdag 30 September 19:00

“Poppemeester” is ‘n multi-media musiekproduksie, geïnspireer deur die persoon van Ingrid Jonker en saamgestel in 2014 deur Lizanne Barnard.
Lizanne Barnard het baie spesiale argief klankmateriaal bekom waarin Ingrid Jonker in haar eie stem praat oor haar werk en haar lewe. Hierdie materiaal word kunstig verweef in ‘n program wat ‘n intieme kykie bied in die lewe van hierdie ikoon, digter, skrywer, aktivis vir menseregte, vrou en moeder. Die lewensverhaal van Ingrid Jonker vind ‘n spesiale plek in die hart van baie lesers en het gestalte gevind in “Poppemeester”- aan die sy van ‘n musikant.



Lizanne Barnard, ATKV Crescendo wenner, sangeres, pianis, fluitis en komponis was nog altyd bekend vir haar roerende toonsettings van gedigte van ons land se grootste digters. Sy was grotendeels verantwoordelik vir die klankbaan van die verhoogstuk “Uit die Bloute” wat ‘n Herrie- toekenning op KKNK 1996 verower het. As medestigterslid van die eertydse duo “Marimba! het sy verskeie toekennings en nominasies vir vorige albums ontvang, o.a ‘n album met toonsettings van Jonker gedigte getiteld “Ingrid Jonker-Die Kind is nie dood nie”.
Lizanne verwerf haar B.Mus graad in Uitvoerende kuns onder leiding van Marian Friedman. Sy begelei haarself meesterlik op klavier en sing toonsettings van Jonker se gedigte asook liedjies van haar solo-album, “Mis voor die Son”. Hierdie album is benoem as CD van die maand in Rooi Rose se Januarie 2016 uitgawe.
Die debuutoptrede van ‘Poppemeester’ by die Foxwood Kunstefees in Oktober 2015 het staande applous by die gehoor uitgelok.

Taiwan Black Bears – Song, Dance, Martial Arts and Drumming. @ Brooklyn Theatre
Oct 3 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Taiwan Black Bears – Song, dance, martial arts and drumming.
Tuesday 3 October 19:00

It’s Time for Taiwan!

The Taipei Liaison Office (TLO) in the Republic of South Africa has the honour of introducing the “Taiwan Black Bears”, a trio of performance groups, to South African audiences who promise to enthral through the mediums of song, dance, martial arts and drumming.

The Arts Performing Group of the Nan Hua Temple

The Nan Hua Temple in Bronkhorstspruit is the South African branch of the largest monastery in Taiwan for the Humanistic Buddhist order, Fo Guang Shan, founded by the Taiwanese monk Venerable Master Hsing Yun, and who have made it their mission to promote the teachings of Buddha and to educate local people.

The Arts Performing Group from the Nan Hua Temple, have captivated audiences around the world with their spirited traditional drumming show. Young ladies from remote areas in the RSA are given the opportunity of learning at the Nan Hua Temple and are taught the art of drumming, among an array of other performance disciplines. Through drumming, the troupe get to showcase some of what they have learned with their unique aggressive percussion style, passion and vigorous performance. Through the expression of music and dance, they have been offered numerous platforms to articulate into the world.

Drumming has always formed an integral part of Taiwanese culture as a means of celebrating life, religion, love and unity. Modern-day Taiwanese drumming invigorates the mind and enables one to tune into the universal rhythmic language of nature, transcending the barriers of culture, gender, age, religion and hierarchy.

 

The Amitofo Care Centre Performing Troupe

The Amitofo Care Centre (ACC) was founded by the Taiwanese monk, Venerable Hui Li, when he visited Africa and was so moved by the plight of orphaned children that he started a Buddhist orphanage which today has a presence in Lesotho, Malawi and Swaziland. A branch of the orphanage will also soon be opened in Bloemfontein, South Africa. The care centre is based on the concept of a ‘Big Family’ or ‘Children’s Village’ and is principled on the local African, oriental and Buddhist culture.

The ACC’s mission is to rear and care for the orphans of Africa within the humanitarian and educational umbrella. All the children can speak at least three languages (Mandarin, English and a local language), and are immersed in Buddhist teachings and hobbies such as dancing, singing and martial arts. These children have been uplifted from poverty and an uncertain future and given a home from where the world is a stage on which they can showcase their talents and reach for the stars.

 

Aboriginal Taiwanese Folk Group

Traditional song and dance roots the aboriginal Taiwanese people to their land, their culture and their heritage. It is through these mediums that the Aboriginal Taiwanese Folk Group stay connected to their home, pass on legacies to future generations and share the folktales, legends and myths with audiences of years gone by.

Their colourful and upbeat performance bring tradition and folklore into the 21st century and showcase that they are still pertinent and valid in modern day. Each dance requires different skills and tells a different story. Some are more modern and others are very traditional.


The “Taiwan Black Bears” will perform at the Brooklyn Theatre on the 3rd of October from 19h00 to 20h00.

Great Romantic Works for Violin and Piano Johanna Roos(Violin) & Pieter Jacobs(Piano) @ Brooklyn Theatre
Oct 4 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

 

Wednesday 4 October 19:00
JOHANNES BRAHMS (1833-1897)
Sonata No 1 in G major for piano and violin, Op. 78MANUEL DE FALLA (1876-1946) (arranged by P KOCHANSKI)
Suite of Spanish folksongsInterval

RICHARD STRAUSS (1864-1949)
Sonata in E flat major, Op. 18

In this concert, masterpieces of the Romantic violin and piano repertoire are showcased. The programme is opened with Johannes Brahms’s first published work for violin and piano, the Sonata in G major, Op. 78. Also known as the ‘Rain Sonata’— Brahms quotes his own song ‘Regenlied’ in the third movement—it is considered to be one of the great lyrical sonatas of the genre. Clara Schumann played an important role in its genesis, as is evident from her correspondence with Brahms. It was first performed in Bonn in 1879 and to this day remains a favourite with violinists, pianists, and audiences alike.

The Suite of Spanish folksongs by Manuel de Falla, transcribed here for violin and piano, brings a beautiful contrast to the programme, transporting the audience to the diversity of Spanish life and culture. Songs represent different regions of Spain such as Andalusia and Asturias, and range in character from a mesmerising lullaby to fiery Spanish dances.

The evening ends with one of the most demanding sonatas in the violin-piano repertoire: the Sonata in E flat major by Richard Strauss. Completed in 1887 when the composer was still in his early twenties, the sonata is filled with heroic ideas, great lyricism – the second movement is a strikingly poetic ‘Improvisation’—and soaring virtuosity that culminates in the exhilarating ending of the final movement.

Pieter-Dirk Uys in
THE ECHO OF A NOISE
a one-man memoir

Thursday 05 October 19:00

“”” ”I tell the story behind the stories. Turning 70 has given me the thumbs-up to share the secrets and let the cat out of the bag.”   Pieter-Dirk Uys

FIVE STARS ***** “Brilliant.  A soul-bearing show that has universal resonance.” Cape Argus

“A formidable raconteur.  What a profound journey it turns out to be.” Cape Times

“’n meesterlike storieverteller, sonder arrogansie of selfbeheptheid.”  Litnet 

“Truly inspirational.”  Theatre Scene Cape Town 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Having performed alone on the stages of the world well over seven thousand times, Pieter-Dirk Uys has learnt that every show is the first and the last performance – because each audience demands and gets a different energy, topicality and excitement.

Now in his 70th year, Pieter-Dirk 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 pointed him in a right and original direction. His father Hannes Uys and his mother Helga Bassel.  His grandmothers, his teachers, his passions.  Sophia Loren, censorship, false eyelashes and making a noise when everyone demanded silence.

“This is just Pieter-Dirk Uys speaking and he opens his heart and talks about his private and public life. He leads you into his inner sanctuary, takes you through our history and shows us where what is public and private meet. Uys was and still is a voice in the wilderness. He remains a master storyteller who can make as much fun of himself as he does with the others who get a lashing from his sharp tongue. 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!”
