Cape Town artists are gearing up for a new production at GrandWest that has created gig opportunities for 33 artists over 16 nights in May.
ArtsUnite, a collaborative initiative between Brukman Consulting, GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World, is the first public platform where a mass of artists will get to perform again since the lockdown started last year.
The show comes as a relief for artists such as Claire Philipps, Craig Lucas, Robin Pieters, PJ Twins, Vuvu Khumalo, Salome, Tye Platinum, Yaaseen Barnes, Fagrie Isaacs, Nur Abrahams and more.
Director Bridgette Brukman from Brukman Consulting says: “This project had no specific target in mind, it evolved organically and aims to create work income for as many artists as possible. We currently have 33 artists, 16 shows and one stage to perform on.
“While each show is a one night only experience, there is a wide variety to choose from, so don't limit yourself to just one night, book a few to make sure you don't miss out on the cream of the crop of our lekker local arts.”
Comedian Yaaseen Barnes says: “It’s good to be back on stage and working again, I think the income loss was a big knock (for many).
“Onstage presence means so much to me and many others.”
