Today (11/07), Kimber­lites can witness image theatre that explores and celebrates the vibrant history of Galeshewe as told by the people who live in Kimberley.

A physical theatre workshop will be presen­ted at the Mayibuye Centre by Memnoc Collective as part of its two-day AfrikaBurn Blank Canvas Express.

Local artists and theatre-makers, who are 18 years and older, are set to benefit from a full day’s workshop.

Utilising physical theatre techniques that include mask perfor­mance and puppeteering, members of the collective, who have been responsible for the infamous Lost Couple mask performances at AfrikaBurn since 2013, co-creates the image theatre.

The iconic desert expe­riment, AfrikaBurn, is lauded for drawing thousands of people from across the globe to the far-southern corner of the Northern Cape in the Tankwa Karoo.

The workshop programme started at the William Humphreys Art Gallery (Whag) on Tuesday (10/07), with AfrikaBurn’s true eclectic style and worth seeing.

Puppet and mask performances from the Memnoc Collective and local performers MoEesy and QrasVu were also showcased and seen.

Work from the coffee table book of photo­grapher and publisher Simon O’Callaghan, Burn – Into the Flames of Burning Art, are being exhibited at Whag.

It is on exhibition until Wednesday (18/07).

The National Lotteries Commission, amongst other supporting arts development in the Northern Cape, has reportedly granted at least R500 000 in support of the programme.
