Celebrating and acknowledging our democracy Artscape is presenting a programme of events leading up to Freedom Day on Sunday 27 April 2014.
Commencing on Thursday 24th April with an exhibition, ‘20 Years of Democracy: Photographers' Perspectives’ curated by Eric Miller who is one of the most widely published and experienced photojournalists working in South Africa. In the 1980s he documented the struggle against apartheid and since the 1990s has covered various aspects of the transformation process in South Africa.
Artscape presents the fourth consecutive season of the Grade 12 Afrikaans setwork play, VersKabaret directed by Alfred Rietmann. Cape Town Afrikaans learners are set to get an enormous boost from the return of the highly successful Grade 12 Afrikaans set-work play, VersKabaret to be held from 08 – 17 May 2014 at the Artscape Theatre.
The Artscape play, Rainbow Scars, has won six nominations in the Naledi Theatre Awards (NTA), Gauteng’s premier awards event.
