2018 Artscape Production – Just OUR Journey
A year after its sold-out 10th anniversary Big Bash show, the CCC returns to the Artscape Theatre for its annual Heritage Month programme with a production called JUST OUR JOURNEY.
Through poetry, music and dance, an array of top performers will combine to reflect the incredible story of the CCC from humble beginnings in a City pub to a powerful arts and culture movement.
The show, which is co-hosted by the CCC and Artscape, takes place at the Artscape Theatre on Monday 24 September at 7.30pm. Tickets are R100, from Computicket.
The powerful line-up of artists includes Jill Levenberg of Suidooster and The Ellen Pakkies Story fame, super saxophonist Don Vino Prins, the ever-rising Rosa choir, opera maestros The Gentlemen’s Ensemble, the incredible Blackroots Marimba, the young energetic dancers of Likhwezi Arts Project, powerful poet Khadija Heeger, the other abled Unmute, the fabulous drag artist Manila von Teez, ethnomusicology artists Azanian Aesthetics and Hip-Hop group In the Key of B.
The Director of Just OUR Journey is Shihaam Domingo, who has been involved in great productions in the City. The talented and versatile young musician Dillon April is the Musical Director.
“I am amazed by the CCCs depth of work and the impact it makes through choirs, cultural programmes, youth development and social cohesion initiatives,” said Domingo.
“This is a story that deserves to be told and I feel privileged to be directing this particular production,” she said.
