Deur die Tralies van my hok

The National Theatre of Namibia (NTN) is staging DEUR DIE TRALLIES VAN MY HOK, under its Premier Productions Project; a predominantly Afrikaans play written and directed by Kubbe Rispel. This is the tragic contemporary inspired story of what happens when a girlfriend/wife/ fiancé becomes a possession of her boyfriend and victim of jealousy, which ends in the tragic death of the girl. These tragic deeds can occur in any sphere of society like in this case where the characters are: • Ben – very rich, sophisticated, highly motivated entrepreneur with a beautiful house, a millionaire, and • Mandy – his fiancé, a soft spoken, caring teacher. Beautiful physically and inherently who is involved with the social upliftment of society and deeply cares for the marginalized people in society, like • Kapie en Ou Toppie who are doing menial labour around the neighbourhood but who are keen observers whose comments on the behaviour and mannerisms of the rich people are sometimes the only truth spoken in these close societies. • There are also Jack and Joy, Mandy’s bohemian, hippy-like friends whose obvious dislike of Ben increase the friction and conflict already existing and leading to the ultimate act of passion killing. For the bystander, it is unnecessary, but is there any justification for passion killing? The Cast: Ben – David Ndjavera Mandy – Khadija Mouton Kapie – Clive van Wyk Ou Toppie – John Isaacks Narrator– Bianca Heyns Joy – Whilzahn Gelderbloem Jack – Romulus Pieters Judge – Joalette De Villiers The play will be on stage the 27 and 28th of October 2017 at the NTN, 20H00. Tickets are available at all Computicket outlets, including the NTN Box Office at N$80-00 and N$50 (For Children, Students & Pensioners)

Albert Frost

ALBERT FROST IS A RESPECTED FEATURE OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN MUSIC SCENE. For the past two decades, the energetic performances of this accomplished guitarist have dazzled audiences as he deftly alternates between rhythm and lead, while showcasing acoustic and electric guitars. His first love is blues, stemming from the influence of his long relationship with the Blues Broers with whom he has performed since 1994. He has recorded with Arno Carstens, Koos Kombuis, Chris Chameleon, Blues Broers and many others. He has performed with every major artist in South Africa, and with international artists like Ali Faka Toure and Finley Quaye. He has toured with Simple Minds and Rem, and supported the Rolling Stones. In 2015 Frost’s impressive 21-year stint with the Blues Broers came to an end, having toured and recorded five albums with them. Now he is looking forward to some exciting new collaborations. In the near future, music fans can look forward to Frost touring with Loki Rothman as well as more shows from Blood Brothers, an interesting project bringing together some of the best from the South African rock fraternity such as Frost, Arno Carstens, Francois van Coke, George van der Spuy (Taxi Violence) and Kobus de Kock Jnr (Black Cat Bones). April 2016 saw the release of his much anticipated third solo album, The Wake Up, which, according to Frost, signals the “start of a new journey” for him. In a departure from Frost’s blues roots, The Wake Up explores various musical avenues and lyrical content to create something he says will surprise and excite his fans. youtu.be He will be performing Live at Desert Tavern Tickets will be N$100.00 at the Door.
