CASCOLAND FESTIVAL PARADE (article first published : 2008-03-8)

The Cascoland Parade which takes place from March 7 to 16 offers an inner city art trip, with patrons becoming part of a festive walking trip through the inner city of Durban along some remarkable locations. It will highlight the work of artists, architects and designers from South Africa and Europe that have been developed over the last weeks in collaboration with local people and communities.

The Parade will start each day at Nicol Square Parkade – Pine Street, where you can park your car securely from Monday to Friday on level 8 (Sat/Sun on level 3). From there, the Parade will start at promptly at 16h30. Patrons will be accompanied by a mixture of guides and performing artists of the Mobile Bin Band.

The Parade will first travels to Warwick Triangle to experience the vibrancy of this transport hub and market place area while walking towards Warwick Park, the first festival destination.

Arriving at Warwick Park a host of festivities will be in full swing. Patrons can make their dearest wish public in the Mobile Wish Photo Studio or pick up some gardening ideas from the Guerrilla Gardeners. The Mobile film screening team will offer visual entertainment while several architectural design objects will be on display in the park.

After approximately 40 minutes, patrons will have the choice between two other Cascoland festival locations: ‘Little’ Cato Manor or The Drop in Centre at Point Area and will be transported in mini buses to this second festival destination.

At the Drop in Centre there will be a puppet show acted by street children. The animation team, Moving Hands, will present their latest workshop material shot in Durban. There will also be a vee-jay stage and patrons can have a look at the ‘Howzit’ project, designer made furniture.

‘Little’ Cato Manor offers the village atmosphere of township life and the results of several gardening projects. A mobile inflatable swimming pool will be operational and an artistic Arena will host performers. As in Warwick Park the Mobile Wish Photo Studio and film screenings will take place in this venue.

At Warwick Park and ‘Little’ Cato Manor food and drinks will be available. Between 19h00 and 20h00 taxi buses will shuttle patrons back to Nicol Square Parkade.

Once again, Cascoland invites the public to experience a festival out of the ordinary. A Parade with three locations, and in between, interventions on a trail that many have not trod. Take your chance and enjoy a festival that might chance your conditioned perceptions of fellow Durban citizens!
