Die twee stories van Jan Mouton: Pieter Schoombee gaan drink tee by PSG se hoofkantoor
Pieter Schoombee, Jannie Mouton - 2011-12-23
Eerste indruk: Die voorsitter van PSG Group kom haal my self by Ontvangs; hy stuur nie sy sekretaresse nie. Tweede indruk: Goeie handdruk, geen glimlag nie. Hy groet met net: “Jan Mouton.” O, en ek het gedink dis “Jannie”. Dis wat daar staan, op die buiteblad van die boek oor hom wat Carié Maas geskryf het. (Jannie Mouton “en toe fire hulle my”, uitgegee deur Tafelberg en te koop teen R195.) Maar nouja, miskien is “Jannie” net vir sy vriende....

Naomi Meyer - 2011-11-16
Alta Joubert, Lollos, Disco en Minki Burger saam met 'n jong spulletjie Lollos is soos om ’n stootwaentjie op te slaan – mens verstaan nie veel van die affêre as jy nie self klein kindertjies het nie.

Waar daar weerlig is: Johann de Lange oor sy jongste bundel
Bibi Slippers - 2011-11-10
Untitled Document Hallo Johann, en baie geluk met die verskyning van Weerlig van die ongeloof. Ek wou al nadat jy die Hertzogprys gewen het, ’n onderhoud met jou voer, maar toe word ek oorval deur stage fright. Ek het gewonder of jy ook daardie senuwees ervaar het? Was dit moeilik om weer die pen op te neem nadat jy so ’n groot prys gewen het, of maak sulke goed (jy weet: fame and fortune) nie eintlik ’n indruk op jou nie? Ek het twee manuskripte, onder andere Weerlig...

Naomi Meyer - 2011-11-02
Baie dankie vir die geleentheid tot gesprek. Vertel asseblief vir ons van die “nuwe” FAK Sangbundel. Die vorige FAK Sangbundel is in 1979 gedruk, die eerste een in 1937, dus is 2012 die 75-jarige viering van die bundel. Die 2012-bundel sal dus ’n poging wees om ’n groot gedeelte van Afrikaanse musiek sedert 1979 op te neem. Let wel, ons probeer om geen duplisering tussen die liedjies van die 1979- en 2012-bundels te doen nie. Die bundel het tien genres/rubrieke: kuns-, populêre,...

Janet van Eeden - 2011-11-01
Untitled Document Tim Greene Tim, Skeem seemed to burst on to the scene out of nowhere. As a film writer I know this can’t be true. What inspired this film and how did the script come to fruition? It’s been a two-year journey so far. We shot the movie exactly a year ago, down at the old Aventura Resort on the banks of the Gariep Dam. It was actually the resort that provided the initial inspiration when we overnighted there on the way home from a wedding in...

Bibi Slippers - 2011-10-26
Untitled Document Hi Shailja, and thank you for your time. From your performance in Cape Town I gather that you are as much a social and political activist as you are a poet. There is a popular and widely held belief that poetry and politics do not make great bedfellows. I'm willing to risk guessing that you'd disagree. What is your opinion on the subject? I share Nobel Prize-winner Toni Morrison’s position: “All good art is political! There is none that isn't. And the...
