This year’s Clover Aardklop National Arts Festival in Potchefstroom offers a wide variety for festival-goers – from huge concerts at the new festival grounds to an outstanding theatre programme.
Last year's artists performing at the respective concerts included Theuns Jordaan, Kurt Darren, Riana Nel, Bobby van Jaarsveld, Steve Hofmeyr and the international acts Smokie and Pussycat (Toni Wille). In Riders on the Storm six of South Africa’s best guitarists can be seen on one stage.
Theatre productions at the festival included Marthinus Basson’s mac.beth / SLAAPLOOS (Dawid Minnaar and Anna-Mart van der Merwe); Wie’s bang vir Virginia Woolf? (Sandra Prinsloo, amongst others), Land van skedels (Nicola Hanekom’s new site-specific production); Waansin (with soprano Magdalene Minnaar performing insanely challenging arias from operas) and ZaZa en die kunsteNar (with the smouldering Zanne Stapelberg). Top productions from theatres and other festivals are also on offer: the hilarious satire Three Little Pigs; Rob van Vuuren – Live; Dirt (James Cairns) and the acclaimed The View (Gideon Lombard and Ella Gabriel). Dance lovers can look forward to Attachments 1 to 7 (Craig Morris and Athena Mazarakis) and The Tshwane Dance Theatre’s Beauty Tips.
