THE PANSA 48 HOUR FESTIVAL – IT’S BACK AND IT’S BIGGER!
PART OF PANSA’S MONTH OF PERFORMANCE
SUNDAY 21ST SEPTEMBER 2008
What do you get when you put 64 of Cape Town's hottest artists together, throw in some crazy ingredients, and allow to simmer for 48 Hours? You get five brand new plays, four totally original music pieces, four mind boggling dance pieces, and four eye watering pieces of visual art.
Starting on Friday 19 September, writers, choreographers, composers and artists will gather to hear the rules for this year's festival. With talent like last year's winners Nicholas Spagnoletti, Louise Coetzer and Nkosinathi Mgweba, along with interesting new entrants like Steve Pillemer and Fiona Du Plooy, we're sure the results will be worth watching. At 6pm on Saturday 20th, they hand over to directors, get joined by actors, dancers, designers and musicians for another crazy 24 hours. This year's talent includes Thoko Ntshinga, Jaqueline Dommisse, Floyed de Vaal, Gideon van Eeden, Thami Mbongo, Brent Palmer, Erica Glyn-Jones, to name but a few.
And then, on Sunday 21st September at 6pm, the magic begins, as all of the weekends pieces are played out in one crazy night. It's fast, it's fun, it's not for the faint-hearted - PANSA 48 Hour Festival 2008.
