Volksblad Arts Festival

During the festival productions that have never been seen before in South Africa will première. No wonder the festival’s slogan is “So much more”.

A newbie for South Africa is a fun project from Australia, Curious Creatures, which can be seen all day long at the festival - for free. The shadows of fantastical creatures are projected on a “wall”. When visitors approach it, their shadows also appear and the creatures react to the shadows of the audience - inter-active fun! It is specially brought to the festival by the Australian Council for the Arts.

The Vry Festival Campus Drama is another new project. The drama departments of eight universities were invited to enter a brand-new play. The first four entries were accepted and they are funded by the festival to develop their production. The drama departments have to see to the standard and quality of the productions. Not only does the project provide a stage for young student talent, it also puts the spotlight on young dramatists because only plays that have never been staged, are acceptable. As luck would have it, three different genres are represented this year: drama, comedy and cabaret.

The quality of dramas this year was so good that it was decided to present much more than last year. Some of the well-known actors involved include Sandra Prinsloo, Amanda Strydom, Hannes van Wyk, Brümilda van Rensburg, Anthea Thompson, Nicola Hanekom, Deon Lotz, Illse Roos, Pieter-Dirk Uys and Bettie Kemp.

A great variety of speakers and events await book lovers. There are some art movies and a choice selection of shorts from the Cape Winelands Film Festival. Even the visual arts exhibitions offer more than before. And there will be the usual art market stalls, a variety of food and free music stages.

The Vry Festival this year truly presents so much more.
