Shakespeare Unplugged

In Uncategorized on June 28, 2013 at 10:26 am

Peace and Blessings.

Every so often a project comes along that inspires one. Inspires one to contribute to the society that one lives in. This particular projects involves youth at risk, and youth in conflict with the law. In collaboration with  The Independent Theater Movement of South Africa ( http://www.southafricantheatre.org/) , the Ottery Youth Care and Education Centre has embarked on an ambitious heartfelt project to introduce the youth of the centre to one of  Shakespeare’s greatest plays, Julius Ceasar.

The performance starts tonight, and will run for the next 3 nights at the centre in Plantation Road Ottery (https://maps.google.co.za/maps?q=Plantation+Road,+Ottery&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x1dcc439fb26e08e7:0x918b99747d6b9aee,Plantation+Rd&gl=za&ei=MlXNUeOvKaia0AW-p4D4BA&ved=0CCsQ8gEwAA) . All the performances are free!

Here is an opportunity to show your support to the young men who come from very difficult backgrounds, by encouraging them with your presence.

If you would like to publish a story on this remarkable project please contact Seraj Jenkins for further details and a possible interview at

The ‘1913 Natives Land Act’ exhibition currently on at the Cape Town International Convention Center.

Peace and Blessings be with you.

I had the privilege of photographing the opening of the exhibition that is currently taking place at the Convention Center in Cape Town commemorating the 1913 Natives Land Act.  The Exhibition was meant to run only on Thursday and Friday, but was extended to Sunday with very good reason.

To say that the multimedia exhibition is visceral would be an understatement. The experience is one that necessarily all South Africans, who want to look back at the last 100 years and more of this country’s struggle MUST see. The dynamic of legitimizing the legal robbery of the land, the human consequences that reverberate strongly today even, and the instant labour force for the complicit mining industries are there made evident.

Entrance to the exhibition.
