THOUGHT BUBBLES (article first published : 2007-03-24)

Thought Bubbles, an exciting new show, featuring The Music of Durban's own Big Idea is to hit Catalina Theatre on Wilson’s Wharf!

The show also features comedians Afzal Khan and Carvin Goldstone in a perfect blend of stand-up comedy and live music.

"The music of Big Idea has always been very descriptive in its style and relevant in its meaning, which is what Afzal and Carvin are amongst the best at doing," says Quincy Fynn who prefers to be called "Ou Q" these days. He and recent award winning comedian, Carvin Goldstone, are largely responsible for the concept.

"The success of last year’s production of Jimbo at The Playhouse can attest to the overwhelming hunger that people have to see themselves represented onstage. That's why I’ve always wanted to take quality shows to the township communities", says Ou Q of Thought Bubbles which previewed in Wentworth, at the Austerville Community Hall on March 20 before moving onto The Catalina Theatre.

“The show is all about Durban. It is a snapshot of where Durban is at this point in History. By combining the two most interesting aspects of our culture: music and humour. But this is not your typical musical review,” adds Quincy. “This is the first in a series of productions that will be presented by Ruffinery Records initiative, "Brand New Theatre".

The aim of this initiative is to present new and emerging local artists with the help of popular and not yet popular emerging brands. Big Idea's success has come from appealing to young people across colour lines. "We are always getting compliments from older people who really appreciate our Jazzy side. But, of course, our main audience are in their twenty's and early thirties. People who are young enough to really appreciate hip-hop and old enough to remember what good music used to sound like."

Thought Bubbles runs from March 23 to 25. Bookings through Thandeka on 031 305 6889.
