Artscape’s Heritage Festival will celebrate the country’s diverse cultures through dance, music and jazz on their virtual platforms.
The festival kicks off with the online performance of Mantis and The Bee, a humorous exploration of /Xam mythology. Developed by the Jungle Theatre Company, this children’s show is based on a story of the First People. Mantis and the Bee were created by the Rain and the Flame to go on an epic journey in search of life. They get involved in an adventure in a world before the earth was created. The production, in association with the City of Cape Town, is available to view until Sunday October 31.
The Kingdom of Ubuntu, a musical concert, celebrates the heritage and diversity of South Africa through music, dance, poetry, drama, storytelling and African fashion.
It is written by Elvis Sibeko, an internationally acclaimed award-winning dancer and choreographer specialising in African contemporary form.
Produced in association with the Department of Sports, Arts, and Culture, the show can be viewed from Friday September 24 to Thursday September 30.
The productions are accessible on the Artscape website www.artscape.co.za for free.
