Open Lecture by Dr Allan Boesak – No reconciliation without justice
Drawing from his newly published book, “Pharaohs on both Sides of the blood-red waters; Prophetic Critique on Empire: Resistance, Justice, and Power of the Hopeful Sizwe”, Dr Boesak explains that “For reconciliation to be the justice-bringing, restorative power it is meant to be, and for hope to be the transformational, life-affirming power it is intended to be, neither angels nor demons are necessary. What our world needs are ordinary human beings. But I speak of a humanised, redeemed and redemptive ordinariness: committed, steadfast, courageous, hopeful, and single-minded towards justice, together in all our rich diversity.”

Gate 69 | 9 August 17 – 7 October 2017
Cathy and the Trolley Dollies: Full Throttle

Cathy, Holly and Molly burst onto the scene in a haze of glitter and hairspray 8 months ago, and Cape Town is still recovering from the shock. While a whole host of eager passengers, both foreign and local, have become closely acquainted with these three Mile-High Aviation Goddesses, so many have still yet to experience the delight of these seductively saucy stewardesses.

Everyday Anomaly | 9 Sep – 15 Oct 2017
Normality, an idea so ingrained in culture that it feels like truth, is an invention of nineteenth century Europe. Originating in statistics, norms first entered language and culture as a means to describe the distribution of human characteristics, a way to talk about bodies and behaviours on a grand scale that quickly became synonymous with their typical forms. But it’s a slim line between an average and an ideal at the best of times: what’s true for many can too easily become what should be true for all. Today we’re most familiar with the norm as a standard by which we judge ourselves and each other. Normality is conditioned, and it is conditional.


Analogue #V ~ Cheryl Traub Adler | 3 Aug – 30 Sep 2017
Inspired by Mount Analogue, the last unfinished novel by René Daumal and the idea that art and spirituality are deeply connected. The creative journey is analogous to climbing a mountain.

Unfinished Stories: Post-Pop Monologues With Dialogic Intent | 10 August – 30 September 2017
In the post-pop world of consumer-driven monologues of selfhood – of blogs and vlogs and selfie-sticks – we ache for dialogue with our peers: drawing, scribbling, typing, photoshopping, picture-snapping, instagramming and collaging, putting it out there in search of the other who will understand exactly what we are trying to say. Comics, murals, Youtube animations, assemblages of all kinds. Unfinished Stories, all.


Codex | Isabella Kuijers
The artworks featured in ‘Codex’ are like chapters in a larger narrative, seeking insight into the pitfalls of communication and understanding in the age of Information Technology, and our perilous relationship with that precious historical emblem of expansive learning so revered by the Gutenberg mind: paper. http://99loop.co.za/exhibitions/isabella-kuijers-codex

Audre Lorde: The Berlin Years- 1984 to 1992 Screening/Discussion
“Audre Lorde – the Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 documents Audre Lorde’s influence on the German political and cultural scene during a decade of profound social change, a decade that brought about the fall of the Berlin Wall and the re-unification of East and West Germany. This chronicles an untold chapter of Lorde’s life: her empowerment of Afro-German women, as she challenged white women to acknowledge the significance of their white privilege and to deal with difference in constructive ways.”

Glassology by Libbey Masterclass; Creating the perfect glass
A new dawn for bartending competitions.

The bar industry is changing rapidly and with it bartending contests evolve to a new level. For ages bartenders competitions like Bacardi Legacy and Diageo World Class were the status quo. It’s glassware brand Libbey that challenges drinks professionals in a new and different way. In the international Glassology by Libbey design contest it’s not the drink, but the glass as an essential ingredient of the whole drinking experience that is the focal point of the competition.

The importance of being extraordinary
Dr Wayne W. Dyer and Eckhart Tolle delve into everything from ancient spiritual texts to contemporary pop culture as they tackle questions we all wrestle with, such as Who am I? What is real? and What is the meaning of life? Yet even as they discuss weighty topics such as the economy and addiction, the mood remains graceful, loving and even humorous. Through their combined wisdom and perception, Wayne and Eckhart bring you inspired lessons for an exhilarating spiritual awakening. This, according to Eckhart, ‘consists of relinquishing identification with the conditioned mind through the cultivation of awareness.’

Heavy Chef Cape Town: Magda Wierzycka
After a packed house in Johannesburg, Magda Wierzycka is coming to Heavy Chef Cape Town on the 18th of September.

Magda gave a scintillating talk at Primedia Place in Sandton earlier in August. During the event Q&A section, Magda gave a first hand account of how she is single-handedly trying to tackle corruption in South Africa. However, we’re not going to focus on Magda’s exploits in the press. Being a platform for entrepreneurs, Heavy Chef invited Magda to our stage to talk about her journey from a Polish youngster arriving in South Africa not being able to speak English, to becoming one of the continent’s most recognisable business leaders.

Everyday Anomaly | 9 Sep – 15 Oct 2017
Normality, an idea so ingrained in culture that it feels like truth, is an invention of nineteenth century Europe. Originating in statistics, norms first entered language and culture as a means to describe the distribution of human characteristics, a way to talk about bodies and behaviours on a grand scale that quickly became synonymous with their typical forms. But it’s a slim line between an average and an ideal at the best of times: what’s true for many can too easily become what should be true for all. Today we’re most familiar with the norm as a standard by which we judge ourselves and each other. Normality is conditioned, and it is conditional.


Analogue #V ~ Cheryl Traub Adler | 3 Aug – 30 Sep 2017

SATURN RETURN | The Guise of Reality – Zarah Cassim solo Exhibition| until 13 September 2017
For her second solo exhibition Guise of Reality, Zarah Cassim has been reading Dostoevky’s 1864 novella Notes from Underground. This Russian set 1800s rambling memoir of a fictional narrator is a thinly veiled attack on Western Philosophy and proposes an alternative consciousness constituted by the anti-hero archetype. It is essentially a modern dystopian text heralding an “existential attitude” – disorientation in the face of a confusing and meaningless world.

Unfinished Stories: Post-Pop Monologues With Dialogic Intent | 10 August – 30 September 2017
In the post-pop world of consumer-driven monologues of selfhood – of blogs and vlogs and selfie-sticks – we ache for dialogue with our peers: drawing, scribbling, typing, photoshopping, picture-snapping, instagramming and collaging, putting it out there in search of the other who will understand exactly what we are trying to say. Comics, murals, Youtube animations, assemblages of all kinds. Unfinished Stories, all.

SATURN RETURN | The Guise of Reality – Zarah Cassim solo Exhibition| 2 August – 13 September 2017
For her second solo exhibition Guise of Reality, Zarah Cassim has been reading Dostoevky’s 1864 novella Notes from Underground. This Russian set 1800s rambling memoir of a fictional narrator is a thinly veiled attack on Western Philosophy and proposes an alternative consciousness constituted by the anti-hero archetype. It is essentially a modern dystopian text heralding an “existential attitude” – disorientation in the face of a confusing and meaningless world.

So why not drop anchor here for a while, crack open that careworn shell and slip into our relaxed and friendly ambiance – whether it be in the cool breezes of summer or by the warm, cosy fires in winter – we have 3 fireplaces to ensure you stay nice and warm. And that infamous South Easter? Don’t fuss! We’re pretty sheltered, tucked in as we are, between the Naval College and the National Sea Rescue facility.

Their events are listed on their Facebook page.

SCTalks Women in Tech
“No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens.” – Michelle Obama
We agree with Michelle’s words and for Women’s Month, we are giving a platform to women who are breaking boundaries in the male-dominated technology industry. Women-led coding academies, flourishing female-founded tech businesses and young women who are disrupting the status quo are proof that a woman’s place is wherever she wants it to be.

We invite women from all career backgrounds, students and other young women to join us as we upack the challenges and celebrating the major wins of Women in Tech.
Yes, men are welcome!

She’s had very basic singing training which started at the age of 15. Dara still pursues her classical music ( both piano and vocals) but this is not her predominant focus. She’s had a passion for singing and accompanying herself on piano ( and guitar) since primary school and the passion has never died!
