Review: Cartoon Network Live

A World Opened Up for the Little Ones! Caroon Network may be one of the first channels that has been viewed by millions of viewers when DSTV started their digital satellite service, but now, kids in Cape Town and Johannesburg also had the chance to see some of their favourite characters live on stage, when Cartoon Network Live came to the Teatro in Montecasino. The stage is ...

Review: Fire & Ice

Review: Fire & Ice

A double act feature that will have you hooked by David Simmons It’s very rare we get to witness two completely different genres of dance in one very exciting and ambitious evening. Fire an Ice, a befitting name for two contrasting works, opened at the Joburg Theatre to mixed emotions. Diehard classical Ballet enthusiasts will revel in a gorgeous presentation of Act 3 of Raymonda, ...

Resensie: Thys & Trix

Nuwe Fliek gebruik al die Trix om Teatergangers te laat Thys voel.  Deur Louw Mulder Daar word deesdae baie goeie dinge gesê van hoe die Afrikaanse Filmbedryf blom, deur kwaliteit, lekker-kyk films op die grootskerm te bring. Selfs die verseidenheid van genres word genoem, en net so het die nuwe rolprent van Bouwer Bosch Films en die Film Factory, Thys & Trix glad nie teleurgestel nie. ...

Nommer 37

‘n Eg Kaapse Riller, en Niks Minder Nie! deur Louw Mulder In een van haar treffers in die 80’s, sing Carike Keuzenkamp die woorde: “Dis ‘n land van kleure en klank, dis ‘n land van oorvloed en dank, dis ‘n land waar almal na strewe… Hierdie land bied almal sy deel…” Dit is hierdie milieu van Trots Suid Afrikaans, die gevoel van patriotisme vir hierdie ...

UB40

UB40

For the First Time in the Capital by Jenny Griesel If there was ever a band that demystified Reggae and opened this genre of music to the rest of the world, it is without a doubt UB40. With their signature rootsy sound, and huge multi hit chart-topping repertoire, UB40 have been wow-ing music fans since 1979. After a brief pause, they reunited and re-entered the ...

Avenue Q

Avenue Q

Innovative Theatre Showcasing More than Meets the Eye by Louw Mulder Avenue Q… there’s actually so much to say about this production, currently on stage at the Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino Theatre. It’s a puppet show, but it’s an adult play, it’s a superbly composed musical, but it is also a presentation of the fact that South African Theatre is ready to take the next steps ...

Sound Of Music

Sound Of Music

A Nostalgic, Delightful Presentation for Total Enjoyment By Louw Mulder The Teatro came alive, with the Sound of Music, when this musical opened at Montecasino last week. This run comes after what is believed to have been a hugely successful World Tour, forcing audiences onto their feet in Manila, Singapore, Macau and Colombo. Now, in Johannesburg, the stage production of the World’s most loved musical, ...

Adam: Bewe

Adam: Bewe

Afrikaans, met verwerkings wat jou sal laat glimlag van lekker kry. deur Louw Mulder Ten spyte van al die bewe en skeef-loop van ‘n paar drankies te veel, was daar groot partytjie gehou tydens die vrystelling van Adam se nuutste album, Bewe, wat die afgelope naweek by Weiveld, in Pretoria die lig gesien het. Om die musiek op hierdie album lewendig te ervaar, was alles ...

Carmen

Carmen

A seductive and theatrical feast for the eyes. By David Simmons Celebrating art in South Africa is probably one of the most rewarding pastimes a person can participate in. We not only pay homage to art in its theatrical form, but applaud and honour the bursting and at times overlooked talent our country has to offer. The latest, sumptuous offering from Joburg Ballet brings us ...

Meerkat Maantuig

Lewensles, of Diep Verbeelding Avontuur? Deur Louw Mulder Gewoonlik, wanneer ek daarop uit is om ‘n resensie oor ‘n film te skryf, word die idees, die sinne, en selfs die woorde van die beoogde stuk al tydens die vertoning by die Premiere duidelik. Maar dan, soos in hierdie geval, word jy getekkel deur ‘n skrywersblok, asof dit veroorsaak word deur ‘n oorlaaiing van emosies en ...
