It’s show time with Amoyo

2019-04-30 06:01

It’s that wonderful time of year when the Amoyo Performing Arts Foundation’s dedicated and committed beneficiaries get to feel the thrill of being on the stage, with all eyes on them, feeling confident and proud of how they are able to entertain you.

It’s that time of year when all the ups and downs, trials and triumphs resonate through each and every piece, it’s the time of year when children feel the true impact of their second home, Amoyo, and bring you a full variety show.

The Faces of Amoyo showcase displays the physical performance arts skills reached through the 32 weeks programme that Amoyo offers to children from Imizamo Yethu and Hangberg, but the “bigger picture” showcases far more.

It demonstrates the commitment of attendees, the increased understanding of reliability and accountability. Several innovative and high impact pieces covering everything from African and contemporary dance to comedy drama, physical theatre, djembe drumming and powerful and moving singing.

The show is on Saturday 4 May at Kronendal Primary School Hall with the first show at 12:30 and the second one at 15:00. Tickets cost R90 per adult and R50 per child.

Amoyo is a non-profit organisation (NPO) utilising performing arts classes as a vehicle to engage with impoverished youth from Hout Bay so that they are supported in their journey to become pursued after young adults passing matric with the understanding of what is needed to be successful post matric. Amoyo focuses on the “attitude of gratitude” towards themselves and others each and every day.

Amoyo has come through a raging year but has stayed true to one of their hashtags #onandup.

They ended the year with remarkable pride at all that had been achieved despite being completely financially under-resourced and started this year with new challenges faced in getting inaugurated into the new Silikamva School building that is still being finished.

Amoyo’s project administrator and coordinator Marilyn Noble says: “Our children have achieved so much and we need you, the public, Amoyo families, friends and everyone else to see them and admire them. However, we are not quitters! The show must go on. “Despite many setbacks, we have nonetheless started the year cheerfully. We have continued engaging with our children every afternoon, polishing and rehearsing and even our newcomers have reached a level to be included in the show,” she says.

Help them sell 600 tickets. If you can’t make a show you can buy a ticket for an Amoyo parent or friend who can’t afford to buy a ticket. All tickets bought in November for the show that was postponed are still valid.

V Ticket lines are now open. Go to https://qkt.io/Amoyo to book or contact the Amoyo office directly marilyn@amoyo.org or phone 021 300 3297.
