Gauteng International Arts Festival 2020 Live and Online @ City of Tshwane
Sep 24 @ 8:00 am – Oct 10 @ 5:00 pm

Announcing the 5th Gaufestival within the City of Tshwane.
24 September – 4 October

www.gaufestival.com

Live and Online concerts in 2020.

An exciting international and local community project, which was launched 2016 in the City of Tshwane.

The principal motivation for establishing such a festival was to promote Tshwane as an international tourist attraction. Few people realize that the Voortrekker Monument is the 2nd most visited tourist attraction in South Africa after the Cape Town Waterfront.

International visitors land up staying in Johannesburg as a matter of course, pay a day visit to the Monument and miss out on so much else on offer within the city of Tshwane.

Tshwane is the ideal metropole to host a festival, bearing in mind the various embassies, from all over the world extant within the city boundaries.

With phenomenal growth over the past 4 years, great excitement reigns for the coming Gaufestival. 

The Gaufestival was registered as a Non-Profit-Organization and was launched in 2016 within various venues in Tshwane. The parties on board are City of Tshwane, Brooklyn Theatre, various theatres,  TTA – Tshwane Tourism Association, Art galleries and a host of community projects. 

The City of Tshwane is on board as the official host city of the festival. The municipality fully supports the festival on various levels with staff involved in administration, organization and in-house funding. 

The engine room for the entire Gaufestival is on Brooklyn Theatre TV and ArtMusic.TV

CONCERTS

Entertainment forms the backbone of any festival worth its salt. 

Exciting events are lined up at a variety of excellent venues all over Tshwane. From the most intimate chamber recitals to huge picnic concerts in the outdoors. Collaboration with international embassies has resulted in top class Classical and World Music artists from different countries performing at the Gaufestival.

COMMUNITY AND CONSERVATION:

The Dendrological society – National Arbour Day is celebrated with annual tree planting at Greenlyn Village during the Gaufestival.

HEALTH

After serious negotiations over the past 3 years, to get a substantial health element on board for the festival, this has become a reality with the Chamberlain’s Capital Classic Fun Run, which will now

become part of the 2019 GauFestival. 

MARKETING

Access to the full database of the City of Tshwane, as well as all the various venues, galleries, embassies etc. will contribute to promote the festival. 

Several international embassies are already on board to promote the festival also via tour operators. 

APPLICATIONS for VENUES

Applications for venues in the 2020 festival will open on 20 November 2019 and close on 31 March 2020.

CELEBRATE OUR CITY

The Gaufestival falls within the most beautiful month of the year in Tshwane with the Jacarandas in full bloom, literally drawing hundreds of international tourists to the city to experience the splendour of it all. 

Let us endeavour to keep these visitors for longer the merely one day so that the entire city can benefit from this. 

The Gauteng Festival logo with its colourful umbrella stands for ‘INCLUSION’ of EVERYONE in Tshwane. 

This is a brilliant opportunity to market our beautiful city locally and abroad and last but not least create many job opportunities and hopefully much pleasure to everyone who will be attending this festival.

Luisa Fernanda is a romantic zarzuela (a Spanish lyric-dramatic genre that alternates between spoken and sung scenes, the latter incorporating operatic and popular songs, as well as dance) in three acts by Federico Moreno Torroba. The libretto, in Spanish, is by Federico Romero and Guillermo Fernández Shaw.
Luisa Fernanda is in many ways the last great romantic zarzuela. First seen at Madrid’s Teatro Calderón on 26th March 1932, it owes something to the earlier masters of zarzuela grande (opera) and género chico (operetta), but its range and scale of emotion surpasses any of Torroba’s models. Musically Luisa Fernanda embodies its composer’s ideals of “El casticismo” – an attempt to foster the tradition of pure, popular nationalism. Torroba’s music certainly offers colourful Spanish charm, as well as fair helpings of graceful Viennese musical comedy and Italian operatic verismo. His musical personality may be elusive, but Torroba’s melodies are consistently memorable and his theatrical instinct never falters.

Bonjour Monsieur Brel – Jannie du Toit @ Pierneefteater
Sep 25 @ 6:00 pm – Sep 28 @ 7:00 pm

Bonjour Monsieur Brel – Jannie du Toit

’n Reis deur die ideë-wêreld van ’n briljante dromer
(In Afrikaans, Frans, Engels, Nederlands)
Tjello:  Susan Mouton
Klavier en akkordeon:  Chanie Jonker

(English text follows after the reviews)

In Bonjour Monsieur Brel word Jacques Brel se beeldryke tekste in vier tale gesing deur Jannie du Toit en begelei deur ’n musiekensemble van klavier, tjello en kitaar. Jannie is dekades reeds ’n hoog aangeskrewe Brel-vertolker en ’n standhoudende eksponent van uitnemendheid in liedkuns, onder andere in Nederlands.

Sy eerste vertolkings van Brel sing hy in 1988 in die produksie Van Berlyn tot Bapsfontein saam met Laurika Rauch. Brel speel sedertdien deurgaans ’n rol in aanbiedinge soos De Kleine Man en Jannie en die Tannie saam met Christa Steyn. Sy mees onlangse optrede in ’n Brel-produksie was Brel in Brooklyn in 2010, weer saam met Laurika, met Christa by die klavier en Sergio Zampolli as akkordeonis. Veral twee Nederlandse Brel-liedere – Madeleine en Liefde van later –  vestig hom vroeg in die negentigerjare as Brel-vertolker, maar sy latere Franse weergawes van La Valse en Il Neige sur Liège kry ook hoë lof van kenners. Naòmi Morgan se Afrikaanse vertalings, wat uiters gunstig vergelyk met vertalings in ander tale, verteenwoordig ’n verrassende nuwe blik op Brel se tekste. Bekende treffers is natuurlik op die spyskaart, maar ook van sy meer onbekende, ewe briljante werk.

Met sy uiters geslaagde eenmanvertoning van woordkuns en musiek – Doep is nie dood nie – steeds op die planke, verwesenlik Jannie ’n jarelange ideaal om Brel ook in die genre van die eenman-literêre kabaret aan te bied. Onder leiding van die deurwinterde Juanita Swanepoel – regisseur en dosent in drama by Stellenbosch Universiteit – word verbande tussen liedere en gedigte gelê en toegelig. Brel se geniale beeldende skryfwerk kom na vore en is soos die werke van klassieke komponiste en die wêreld se opera’s, helaas soos alle groot kuns, tydloos. Brel se liedkuns sal nog vir ’n lang tyd telkens weer nuut geïnterpreteer en beluister word. In hierdie program kom sy genialiteit ewe sterk na vore in al vier tale – ’n getuigskrif vir die ongeëwenaarde seggingskrag van die grootste chansonnier van die 20ste eeu.

Jacques Brel:  Alle musiek en Franse tekste
Juanita Swanepoel: Samestelling en bindtekste
Clinton Zerf, Matthys Maree: Musiekverwerkings
Naòmi Morgan:  Afrikaanse vertalings en teksversorging

Luisa Fernanda is a romantic zarzuela (a Spanish lyric-dramatic genre that alternates between spoken and sung scenes, the latter incorporating operatic and popular songs, as well as dance) in three acts by Federico Moreno Torroba. The libretto, in Spanish, is by Federico Romero and Guillermo Fernández Shaw.
Luisa Fernanda is in many ways the last great romantic zarzuela. First seen at Madrid’s Teatro Calderón on 26th March 1932, it owes something to the earlier masters of zarzuela grande (opera) and género chico (operetta), but its range and scale of emotion surpasses any of Torroba’s models. Musically Luisa Fernanda embodies its composer’s ideals of “El casticismo” – an attempt to foster the tradition of pure, popular nationalism. Torroba’s music certainly offers colourful Spanish charm, as well as fair helpings of graceful Viennese musical comedy and Italian operatic verismo. His musical personality may be elusive, but Torroba’s melodies are consistently memorable and his theatrical instinct never falters.

Emile Minnie ~ My ruk in Rio @ Pierneefteater
Sep 29 @ 6:00 pm – Oct 2 @ 7:00 pm

Emile Minnie ~ My ruk in Rio

Emile kom kuier op Pierneefteater se kuberverhoog met ’n splinternuwe Afrikaanse produksie.

Kaartjies slegs R75 en beskikbaar vir die aanlynteater

Kaartjies beskikbaar by info@pierneefteater.co.za

So vertel hy waar die produksie ontstaan het:

‘Ek was in 2019 op ’n ses maande sabbatsreis in Rio de Janeiro. Daar het ek Portugees leer praat by ’n taalskool, wonderlike nuwe vriende gemaak en vir’n maer tannie met ’n hengse wit bolla klavier gespeel. Tydens die inperking – terug in Suid-Afrika – het ek my swaer se kamera geleen en myself geleer hoe om musiekvideo’s te maak. Toe sit ek in my sitkamer ’n show aanmekaar vir ’n virtuele gehoor. Ek vertel wat ek in alles in Rio beleef het en sing liedjies wat ek geskryf het terwyl ek daar was’.

Emile nooi die gehoor om die stories en liedjies saam met hom te kom geniet. Hy glo dat die gehoor se heupe sal jeuk om te swaai en dat die musiek ook sal ontroer.

Emile het derde plek behaal in die Huisgenoot se liedjieskryf-kompetisie en hy is benoem vir ’n Kanna-toekenning by KKNK. Hy is by geleentheid deur Laurika Rauch beskryf as een van ons land se top liedjieskrywers.

LEONARD COHEN – Koos van der Merwe @ Optog
Sep 30 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Min kon dit doen soos Leonard Cohen, om met musiek en poësie ingang te kry tot ‘n mens se diep emosionele binneplekke.

Wie sou ooit verwag dat dieselfde snare van die siel geroer kan word in Afrikaans?
Tog het Koos van der Merwe en Matthys Maree dit reggekry. Die album, Leonard Cohen in Afri-kaans, het lank reeds goue status bereik. En nou kan jy hierdie vertoning in die gemak van jou eie huis beleef.

Volgens Matthys pas Cohen se musiek “Koos se stem soos ‘n handskoen. Husky, warm, laag en soulful … Dis die lirieke wat Cohen se songs so sterk maak. En Koos, met sy pragtige praat- en sangstem, vertolk dit uitstekend.”
’n Konsert vir die fynproewer. Digterlik. Meesleurend. Met Matthys Maree op die klavier en Koos van der Merwe op Kitaar.

Jannie du Toit – Die eggo van jou oë @ Pierneefteater
Sep 30 @ 6:00 pm – Oct 3 @ 7:00 pm

Jannie du Toit

Die eggo van jou oë

Die eggo van jou oë sou gedurende Maart 2020 deel van die KKNK in Oudtshoorn gewees het, maar nou het Jannie besluit om, soos talle ander kunstenaars in hierdie dae, die konsert na jou eie sit-, eet- of slaapkamer toe te bring – selfs na jou lapa toe as jy wil!

In hierdie kuberkonsert sing Jannie, wat hom nou reeds byna vyftig jaar in Afrikaanse musiek uitleef, sy hartsmusiek. Daar is liedjies van sy onlangse albums soos Die eggo van jou oë met hoogtepunte uit sy loopbaan en Oesjaar met sy eie splinternuwe komposisies, maar ook gunstelinge uit sy jeugjare soos die pop- en folk van die sestiger- en sewentigerjare.

Daarby is Jannie natuurlik bekend vir sy uitsonderlike weergawes van Afrikaanse en Europese kleinkuns: Die program omvat letterlik Donovan tot by Doep, die Beatles tot by Brel. Die merkwaardige verskeidenheid van die program word ‘n sprankelende vertoonvenster vir sy ensemble van instrumentaliste uit die boonste rakke.

Is jy ‘n fên van Koos Kombuis? Raak jy ten spyte daarvan ook soms moeg daarvan om by elke konsert dieselfde bekende liedjies te hoor? In hierdie spesiaal opgeneemde konsert wat jy vanaf 25 Julie 2020 hier kan kyk, gaan jy die kans kry om iets anders te hore te kry. Ietsie nuuts, maar ook ietsie moois uit die oude doos.

Tydens die afgelope paar maande van grendeltyd het Koos deur sy ou albums geluister en het hy ‘n klompie liedjies afgestof wat hy jare laas, of selfs nog nooit, by lewendige shows gespeel het nie. Hy het ook ‘n paar nuwe liedjies geskryf en terselfdertyd enkele liedjies ontdek wat nog nooit opgeneem is nie.

Koos gaan nou hierdie liedjies sing, maar ook meer as dit: hy gaan vir die eerste keer meer vertel van waar elke lied vandaan kom, hoekom hy dit geskryf het, en hoekom hy, ten spyte van die situasie in die land op die oomblik, nog glo in ons toekoms en in Afrikaans.

O, en julle het seker gehoor: Koos speel deesdae ook soms bekfluitjie!

Alle kaartjies is vir 72 uur geldig.
Ouderdomsbeperking: 16/taal.

Luisa Fernanda is a romantic zarzuela (a Spanish lyric-dramatic genre that alternates between spoken and sung scenes, the latter incorporating operatic and popular songs, as well as dance) in three acts by Federico Moreno Torroba. The libretto, in Spanish, is by Federico Romero and Guillermo Fernández Shaw.
Luisa Fernanda is in many ways the last great romantic zarzuela. First seen at Madrid’s Teatro Calderón on 26th March 1932, it owes something to the earlier masters of zarzuela grande (opera) and género chico (operetta), but its range and scale of emotion surpasses any of Torroba’s models. Musically Luisa Fernanda embodies its composer’s ideals of “El casticismo” – an attempt to foster the tradition of pure, popular nationalism. Torroba’s music certainly offers colourful Spanish charm, as well as fair helpings of graceful Viennese musical comedy and Italian operatic verismo. His musical personality may be elusive, but Torroba’s melodies are consistently memorable and his theatrical instinct never falters.
