TWO high-energy, visionary young dancers, Cue Ngema and Nosipho Mkhize, are assembling a stellar line up of independent Durban-based multi-media creatives for an afternoon showcase of poetry, music, dance, drama, visual art, painting and design entitled Salute African Goddess, on Saturday 12 August from 3pm until 6pm at the Alliance Française de Durban.

Ngema and Mkhize have invested huge care and energy in curating a programme of performers, art-makers and innovators who don’t regularly appear on stage together. Their line-up includes some of the best seasoned professionals, foreign nationals, emerging talent and fringe performers to ensure the programme is interesting, innovative, fresh and meaningful.

Although much of the work speaks particularly to women’s issues, the participants are men and women, youthful and experienced, cross-cultural and multi-lingual.

When funding support wasn’t forthcoming, the two dancers remained committed to staging the event and decided to produce the event themselves.

Nosipho, a competent and skilled baker, started a cake business from home, Gloryart Café, as she plans to later on build her small cake business into a full running, glorious arts café filled with entertainment and fashion boutiques. To fund the project, Nosipho daily bakes cakes and delicacies which Cue Ngema and friends sell. The revenue generated from this entrepreneurial endeavour is funding Salute African Goddess.

Entry is R50 and R25 for students with ID, which includes a free drink. For more information, contact 062 361 8950.
