NAKED PART ONE (article first published : 2006-04-23)

For one night only, on April 28, Durban’s celebrated restaurant and cocktail bar, Bean Bag Bohemia, will become a stage for a dramatic evening of dance, fine dining, fashion and art.

Centred on a fresh, contemporary dance collaboration between Durban choreographers David Gouldie and Lliane Loots, Naked will explore the interaction of various art styles in an accessible, relaxed and innovative form.

The evening starts at 18h30 for 19h00 with a two-course meal conjured up by BBB’s celebrated chef Brendon Newport, complemented by new brand on the “designer” beer block, Peroni. Dinner guests will be entertained by intervention theatre, with poetry, fashion and music being the key elements.

And while guests savour their Danish feta married with basil, chili and lime, spicy seafood in pastry and a classic Italian lamb ragout, they can feast their eyes on art exhibitions – Currency, Coke Club and Musing Men - compiled by resident curator Tamlyn Martin.

After dinner, guests continue their adventure through the Naked car installation series where various visual artists will express their interpretation of the night’s risqué theme.

And then it’s on to St Mary’s Hall where guests will be seated in a surround for David Gouldie and Lliane Loots’s dance work which will feature dancers from Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company and Flatfoot Dance Company.

To add further intrigue, theatre personalities, Karen van Pletsen, Neil Coppen, Claire Mortimer, Belinda Henwood and Michael Gritten, will make their debuts in a “risky dance collaborative”.

Fresh Durban fashion will be woven into the performance featuring the designs of style princess Roseanne Immerman.

For those who still have the stamina for more stimulation, the party moves back to BBB where an outdoor stage will host emerging Durban band Love Jones as well as a revival of 80s kitsch cabaret. Back in the elaborate Victorian confines of BBB, top deejays will keep the party going long into the night.

Tickets R150 pp include the two-course meal. There will also be lucky draw prizes, including Peroni hampers, meals for two and a sexy night out at La Bordello. A limited number of tickets for the show only are available at R80.

Bookings through Kerry between 08h00 and 17h00 on 031 309 6019 or email beanbag@worldonline.co.za
