Whacky Wine Weekend 2018

IMG_20180602_110750

The 15th Annual Whacky Wine Weekend proudly hosted by the Robertson Wine Valley was a success in their theme Taste The Lifestyle. It all happened from 31 May – 3 June 2018 and some of the #TeamWeekend Traveling Media Crew went for a day trip to experience it all.

With a host of estates offering up to six tastings per person it’s totally understandable why an entire weekend is required. The team opted to visit the ones as recommended by the Robertson Wine Valley team but we also booked the farm safari drive at Jan Harmsgat out in Swellendam for the late afternoon.

There were some really vibey pumping venues with tons of people enjoying the winter sun and the day was just perfect for exploring the Cape Winelands.
IMG-20180602-WA0031.jpg

A firm favourite of the estates was definitely the following where we totally enjoyed the many picture opportunities too. Bon Courage seems to have been one of the more favored ones, from lovely wines to a great atmosphere and just all around awesome vibe and leaving with a box of six bottles of their Like Father Like Son Range.

The next stop that was pumping, set along the river with boat trips too was at Viljoensdrift with their Rose being a firm favourite and everyone’s glasses sparkling pink.

We continued along but decided to skip the traffic due to road works and popped in at Excelsior and the cheese and biltong was a real treat to be combined and the fact that you could also try your hand at mixing your own wine blend was an interesting twist.
IMG_20180602_133754.jpg

Not too far from here around another bend was the lovely Zandvliet with lounge areas outside with hot fires and a buzzing tent with gin tastings too and their cellar experience with its cave like feel was really amazing. IMG-20180614-WA0066

We then continued on quite a bit of a drive towards Swellendam for our late afternoon Farm Safari Drive to discover a bit more about the Jan Harmsgat working farm and got to taste some pecan nuts and were treated in just a bit of game viewing of their herd of wildebeest.
IMG_20180602_154514.jpg

Ending off with a lovely late afternoon into sunset safari drive with such amazing landscape views to end of a great day and having to drive back to what was a rainy Cape Town but much needed water for the area.

Plans were being made as the day neared its end to probably do a sleep over next year for a proper #TeamWeekend and explore some more and have more fun!

Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards 2018

The 53rd Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards was the highlight of theatre events hosted in Cape Town at the Baxter Theatre!
IMG_20180318_193302[1].jpg

Reviewing 115 productions for the 2017 theatre year, the judges had some tough decisions to make to honor and celebrate the people of the theatre industry. It was really great to see the support and joy shared by everyone for each award category. The highlight for me was when Alvon Collison received the Lifetime Achievement award and him having the crowd in stitches and I’m sure quite a few tears too as was the case with me. Was really an emotional moment of which Edith Plaatjies had one too and it was really great that she could share it with us. 
IMG_20180318_211109[1].jpg

Host for the evening Africa Melane did a sterling job and the entertainment throughout the evening was really extraordinary. Have a look at our Facebook page for a video as a little taste of the nights entertainment of which myself and Lady Morgana thoroughly enjoyed.

BLACK Panther Conversation
The Black Panther has landed with such a powerful force that it has gotten everyone talking. Black audiences across the globe are feeling empowered and emboldened by the power of Afro-futurism painting a new African narrative, the experience of an almost all-black cast with a host of powerful characters who look like them. While many others may not see why there’s such a big fuss over “just another Marvel movie”, it’s important to lean in and understand the significance of this moment and imagery. You’ve watched the movie, you’ve let it T’challa-enge some of your perceptions, now let’s talk! Join us for a night of amazing short talks, deep round-table discussions, panel Q and A and a chance to explore more deeply the layers of significance that director Ryan Coogler [Fruitvale Station, Creed] and this impressive cast have set before us. We WakaWaka’d when the world cup come to town, now we invite you to #WakandaForever

Land in South Africa is not just about a plot or property; it’s symbolic of a history and legacy of dispossession. A dispossession that has persisted, through generations, in multiple ways. It persists today.

On 21 March we will march from Keizersgracht to the Cape Town Civic Centre to deliver our demands to local, provincial and national government.

Pieter-Dirk Uys: When in doubt, say Darling | 14 – 16 Mar 18
Sometimes politics repeats itself, not only taking history and turning it into farce, but taking farce and turning into the fake news which is now called entertainment. Pieter-Dirk Uys is sorting out 40 years of distress, disguise and disgust:from apartheid to tripartite, from amandla to Nkandla. Wigs, glasses, wagging fingers, toyi-toyis, red berets, trump cards of madness, icons and aikonas. From Bezuidenhouts, Raubenheimers and Ramaphosas to Altzheimers.

Performed in English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa, the play critically engages the 2015 student protests in SA, and uses the language of storytelling and physical theatre to engage with the struggles faced by woman immersed in social and political environments that are systematically violent. It is set between contemporary SA’s higher learning institutions and Potters Field, a poverty-stricken place where the citizens have lost all hope and anxiously awaits their deaths.

Lost in Known Territory | 28 Feb – 24 Mar 2018
“Over the years I have collected and catalogued a large selection of images from various sources including books, magazines, websites and social media, personal photo archives, and many more. The figures in this body of work were created from fragments of these images, and their compositions reference certain historical paintings motifs.

This creates subjects that seem to be contextualised and somewhat recognisable, yet they passionately attempt to proclaim their own unique identities, despite our pre-conceived notions. This process examines how we impose identities upon others, and subsequently challenges fashionable standards of beauty and sexualisation.”

The Blowfish Sundowner sessions presents Hatchetman(Duo)
Due to such a fantastic response last week, we’ve decided to bring the Hatchetman guys back this week for the Sundowner sessions at Blowfish Restaurant. Usually a 4 piece, well known for their soaring harmonies and searing dynamism in the musical accompaniment, Jonathan Tait(frontman and guitar player) and Matt Catto (percussionist) decided to partake in a bit of a spin off of the band, offering a slightly more stripped down versions of the songs fans have come to love over the last 4 years. You can expect music and songwriting of the highest calibre, as well as a few Crosby, Stills and Nash, Neil young and Eagles covers thrown in to the mix. These are bands that Hatchetman have very often been compared to.

Chinese Painting
Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world. Painting in the traditional style is known today in Chinese as guóhuà (simplified Chinese: 国画; traditional Chinese: 國畫), meaning “national” or “native painting”, as opposed to Western styles of art which became popular in China in the 20th century. Traditional painting involves essentially the same techniques as calligraphy and is done with a brush dipped in black ink or coloured pigments; oils are not used.

Kudu | 27 Feb – 10 Mar 2018
Set in the year 2030, the AmaXhosa Nation has taken over the Eastern Cape in an attempt to utilise the land for their own prosperity. Three Khoi descendants and their aging cow are migrating to the Eastern Cape. Drama ensues when they come to Intaba KaNdoda, a poverty-stricken community once ruled by the Khoi chief Ndoda. The Khoi descendants, having heard stories of how chief Ndoda was killed in a land dispute, have come to reclaim what is rightfully theirs- they have come to take the land from the AmaXhosa. Kudu is not only about people reclaiming their land, but also their customs, culture, languages and spirituality. It’s a fight for acknowledgement as existing, not extinct.

Zabalaza Festival | 9 – 17 march 2018

23 Years a Month and 7 Days | 13 – 24 March 2018
Performed in English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa, the play critically engages the 2015 student protests in SA, and uses the language of storytelling and physical theatre to engage with the struggles faced by woman immersed in social and political environments that are systematically violent. It is set between contemporary SA’s higher learning institutions and Potters Field, a poverty-stricken place where the citizens have lost all hope and anxiously awaits their deaths. Themes of migration and self-actualisation are explored as a young woman of humble upbringing finds her identity in conflict with her environment.

Thirst  | 11 March 2018
Sugar-daddy Theatre co. presents, Thirst, by Eugene O’Neill. It’s somewhat ironic that this one act play (adaptation by Sugar-daddy) is set one hundred years ago, which coincides with the last time Cape Town experienced such a serious drought! The play can be seen as a metaphor for life and borders on absurd-ism… A gentleman, a lady and a sailor are stuck on a raft waiting to be rescued.. what happens next?

To Get To The Moon|  13 – 24 March 2018
A gentle exploration of the lives of married couple, Norman and Bianca. Some years prior to the action of the play they have experienced a traumatic event. The very different ways they have tried to come to terms with this event threaten to destroy their marriage. The play explores themes of responsibility, guilt and blame, the science and art of decision-making and the shame that keeps crucial information hidden. A moving and uplifting experience.

Lizelle Kruger : Cape Town Memoirs and Dangerous Liaisons | until 30 Mar 18 
Kruger’s large-scale street and landscape works of the Mother City from the 1920s to 1960s form the backdrop to the women who take centre stage in this exhibition. The artist pays tribute to women from every sphere of society: women who participated in dockside liaisons, women who operated the ‘Sugar Houses’, and the imported female slaves – many of whom were housed at the Company Slave Lodge which can still be seen in Adderley Street.

Penny Siopis, This is a True Story: Six Films (1997 – 2017) | 16 Feb – 15 Jul 18

Projecting a multiplicity of experiences, Siopis’ films make use of found 8 mm and 16 mm film footage, drawing from official documents, newspaper clippings and personalised accounts of history to create an overlooked historiography.

Lost in Known Territory | 28 Feb – 24 Mar 2018
“Over the years I have collected and catalogued a large selection of images from various sources including books, magazines, websites and social media, personal photo archives, and many more. The figures in this body of work were created from fragments of these images, and their compositions reference certain historical paintings motifs.

This creates subjects that seem to be contextualised and somewhat recognisable, yet they passionately attempt to proclaim their own unique identities, despite our pre-conceived notions. This process examines how we impose identities upon others, and subsequently challenges fashionable standards of beauty and sexualisation.”
