THEMBIKILE Mtshali Jones is no stranger to the stage. Her award winning production, Woman in Waiting of international acclaim, graced the stage at the Athenaeum on July 7as part of the Second Season of Solo Theatre, hosted in collaboration between the National Arts Festival, Mandela Bay Development Agency, the Athenaeum and Numb City Productions.
The Second Season of Solo Theatre presented performances by artists experienced in creating work that is intimate and powerful and with which South Africans can embrace and celebrate their right to individual expression.
IN THE beginning, a room full of posters seemed like an awkward format for an exhibition – one which might not immediately connect with the observer’s sense of their depth and meaning – at face value that is.
THE Athenaeum, Numb City Productions and Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) School of Music, Art and Design presented The Trinity Session’s survey exhibition and public space intervention in Port Elizabeth, Central and Grahamstown during the National Arts Festival last week which featured a segment on the diaspora food experience in suburb of Central.
NUMB City Productions, operators of the Athenaeum Complex, have appointed a new, dynamic team to manage and transform the building into a creative hub servicing the emerging creative sector in Nelson Mandela Bay.
