Jeremy Loops at Kirstenbosch

Jeremy Loops at Kirstenbosch

The Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts presents a live performance by modern folk musician, Jeremy Loops.

From cult live act status in his hometown Cape Town, to a chart topping album domestically, Jeremy Loops career’s been characterised by breaking through glass ceilings. An international breakout year in 2015 saw him open for Twenty One Pilots on the road, headline a sold out 30,000-ticket tour of his own, and release music, most notably his single Down South, breakthrough in major European territories. With his new album, slated for a 2017 release, here’s a maturing, sophisticated musician preparing to see his vision of taking his music global.

The extremes aren’t new to the singer, who by day travels to the furthest corners of Africa to battle deforestation through his organisation, Greenpop, and by night resumes as raconteur for raucous fans around the world.

“As he relaxed and layered the second banjo part and then a basic beat, the act was smooth and natural and it was obvious that he was playing his own game with his own rules.” Read Marie-Claire de Villiers’ review of Jeremy Loops.

Venue: Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, Rhodes Dr, Newlands, Cape Town
Time: 5.30pm
Cost: R140 – R205

The Inconvenience of Wings

The Inconvenience of Wings

The Baxter presents acclaimed writer and director, Lara Foot’s The Inconvenience of Wings, a play that brings bipolar disorder and friendships into the spotlight.

Inspired by author Abraham J Twerski’s book Addictive Thinking, this production is set in a landscape of memory and dreams, and tackles the issues of friendship, dysfunction, addiction and angels.

The powerful and poignant drama about friendship, dysfunction, addiction and angels makes for compelling viewing with burning contemporary themes and its devastating effect on the family. Set in a landscape of memory and dreams this play cuts close to the bone for anyone who has suffered mental illness themselves, or has lived with someone who is afflicted. Written and directed by Lara Foot CAST Jennifer Steyn, Andrew Buckland & Mncedisi Shabangu.
