Klein Karoo Arts Festival (KKNK) is an Afrikaans arts and culture festival in the Karoo town of Oudtshoorn. Ten years after the first festival, the KKNK starts its second decade with a shift of emphasis to the classical, without changing its winning recipe drastically.
The music theatre genre boasts with a whole heap of productions. Goema is a brand new revue by David Kramer and Taliep Petersen, their first since Kat & The Kings.
The KKNK always offer a first class program to classical music enthusiasts and this year quite a few choirs will perform, including the University choirs of Stellenbosch and Pretoria , the Tygerberg's Children's Choir and Coristi Allegri (winners of the Slurpie prize in 2003).
Concerning the visual arts, this year's Festival Artist, Minette Vári, investigates identity through the lens of a video camera, while there are no less than 111 rare, original Pierneef works from the Absa collection on show.
Another new feature is the Karookafee (discussions about productions and exhibitions), Seepkis (for everyone that want to have their say) and Warm Patat (discussions about controversial subjects).
