Share a Moment

It is pretty hard not to get swept up in the Olympic spectacle when you see sharing like this. Germany's gymnast Fabian Hambuechen hugs U.S. gymnast Jonathan Horton at the Beijing 2008 Olympics. Horton won the silver, Hambuechen the bronze medal.

Pure Poetry

A few days ago I caught China's Chen Yibing in the men's rings final of the gymnastics event of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. China's Chen Yibing won the gold, China's Wei Yang the silver and Ukraine's Oleksandr Vorobiov the bronze. Watching him move was poetry in motion - pure art and true inspiration.

Cha Cha Heels

We saw Cha Cha Heels on Saturday night - most enjoyable! This slick Drag Extravaganza by producer Bryan Bester, brings together a cast of eight of the South Africa’s leading Drag Artists, headed up by the formidable Ines Beau Rivage and features four handsome male dancers. Awesome costumes by Kurt van der Muller and choreography by Robin McBroom make it a night to remember.

Rihanna, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera and Nelly Furtado join disco favourites Shirley Bassey, Donna Summer, Tina Turner, Eartha Kitt, Cher and Gloria Gaynor. Also, a few numbers from old James Bond movies, Chicago and some Brazilian rhythms featuring Carmen Miranda.

Cha Cha Heels runs until the 10th August 2008 at the Tesson Theatre, Johannesburg Civic Theatre. Don't miss it!

Who is Torburan?

Can't seem to find any information about this artist - Torburan. I really enjoy the strong graphic and decorative qualities as well as the way the figures have been abstracted.
