TEST DRIVING THE ARTS (article first published : 2005-02-25)

The Playhouse Company has announced programme details for the first leg of its 2005 Test Driving The Arts performances in Durban, to be given every second Tuesday, from March 1 until May24.

These free lunch-hour concerts, held between 13h00 and 14h00 in The Playhouse Grand Foyer, offer popular midday entertainment options for CBD workers. They also provide a cosmopolitan performance platform for community artists from all over KwaZulu-Natal whose careers stand to benefit from professional exposure to city audiences.

First up on the Test Driving the Arts roster for March I is a mixed programme spotlighting poetry recitalist Furrah Simbeku and pantsula group Solutions both from Umlazi, with maskanda performers Izimtombi Zendabuko from Mont Moree.

March 15 features kwaito artist Inja Yethafa from Ndengezi, along with Umlaziís Gospel group, Sound of Africa.

Richmond pantsula artists Rafifi and Clermont Umbhaqanga practitioners Odali fill the bill for a double-act lunch-hour on March 29, to be followed on April 12 by a group of Indian dancers from schools in Chatsworth, who share the stage with KwaDabeka reggae performers, Afro Guys.

On April 26, isicathamiya enthusiasts can look forward to a Test Driving appearance by Junior Mambazo from Pinetown, coupled with Clermont maskanda artist Vumile Nojikelele.

More pantsula is on the cards for May 10 when Inanda group Chiz Boys shares the limelight with Illovu Afro Gospel group, Word of Praise.

Rounding off this first leg of Test Driving the Arts on May 24, enthusiasts can look for Inzalabantu, an Isigekle group from KwaXimba, who will appear alongside the Inanda Shembe Gospel singer, Sbu Nxumalo.

More information regarding The Playhouse Companyís Test Driving The Arts from Mdu Jali on 031 369 9440 or 073 199 4205.
