A GROUP of local artists will host a performing arts event on June 24 in support of the #NOTINMYNAME campaign against abuse to women in South Africa.

Lutho Hans, a 20-year-old contemporary dancer from Algoa Park, is organising the event.

“I recently heard on the news about the killings happening in South Africa. It is mostly women and children being killed and, having two sisters and a niece, I wouldn’t like something like that happening in our city.

“The #NOTINMYNAME campaign is totally against the abuse of women, which is done by men, so I took it upon myself to put together a production that will not only say no to these kinds of acts, but also to educate men on how to act like men,” he said.

Though Hans is not a professional dancer yet, he has been dancing since 2010 and has attended workshops in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Other acts that will feature at the performing arts event include The Eggshells band, rap artist Nazz The Greatest and many more.

“I really hope the event touches a lot of men to say it will not happen in our city, in our country and in our world,” Hans said.

The performing arts event will take place on June 24 at The Athenaeum in Central from 2:30pm to 6pm.

Tickets at R150 per person are available from Lutho Hans on 079 146 7678.
