RED EYE (article first published : 2004-09-7)

The Durban Art Gallery’s highly successful initiative, Red Eye, will take place on September 17 launching the eagerly-anticipated Celebrate Durban/eThekwini season.

A highlight of the event will be the once- off Durban screening of William Kentridge's 9 Drawings for Projection - a big screen compilation of the nine videos made by Kentridge since 1999. The film chronicles the battle between Soho Eckstein (property developer) and Felix Teitlebaum (whose anxiety flooded half the house) for the hearts and gold mines of Johannesburg.

William Kentridge has gained international recognition for his distinctive animated short films and for the charcoal drawings he makes in producing them. He is undoubtably South Africa's most famous living artist and will attend the showing of this production. The films are to be screened in the Durban City Hall accompanied by the music of Phillip Miller performed live by the Sontonga Quartet.

While Red Eye is always extremely popular, this is definitely a not-to-be-missed opportunity and audiences are advised to get there early to purchase tickets. This time, there is a definite starting time as the screening of the Kentridge starts promptly at 18h30 - so Red Eye enthusiasts should ensure that they are on site by 18h00 to catch the whole event!

Ticket sales open at 17h30 at the main entrance of City Hall, Church Walk on September 17. The screening starts promptly at 18h30 and the production is sponsored by Standard Bank.

This spectacular performance is only the beginning of yet another exciting Red Eye line-up which will feature many new contemporary dance performances, DJ's, live bands, street buskers, performance art and pavement cafés as well as living human sculptures. From Albany Grove to the Royal Hotel; Smith Street will be transformed into a fabulously, over-the-top street party.
