Ronnie Govender at Time of the Writer 2007: Must writing not grapple with both the curable and the incurable aspects of life?
Ronnie Govender - 2007-04-23
Ronnie Govender gave this speech at the opening of the 2007 Time of the Writer international festival of writers at the University of KwaZulu-Natal on 19 March. JM Coetzee stirred the tired, old conscience when he recently talked of the holocaust of animals. However, I must confess that I still enjoy mutton curry, fish curry, trotters curry, head curry and especially karvaad chutney loaded with green chillies. Unlike the disciplined Coetzee, in pursuit of the pleasures of the flesh I stoutly...

We were at the Publishers' Forum session at the annual Time of The Writer International Writers Festival held in Durban at the Bat Centre, organised by the Centre for Creative Arts at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. “A contract between author and publisher is meant to...

Memories of modernity
Suzy Bell - 2007-04-03
“This morning I did a reading in a prison, the Westville Prison; what a fascinating experience,” said the clearly impressed Swedish author Oscar Hemer. “This Time of the Writer International Writers Festival is most distinctive,” he added, “because literature is the focus and in a social context. It’s not just about the book like at a book fair.” Oscar was taking part in a socially engaged panel discussion titled "Memories of Modernity: Critical...

National Arts Festival programme announced: United Voices of Art! Pleasure with a healing purpose
Grahamstown - 28 June to 7 July 2007 - 2007-03-27
In a world grown increasingly angry and aggressive, individuals inevitably react by seeking meaning in the particular, the private and the personal. And the arts, harbingers of our inner lives, lead the way. The trend is clear in the Main Programme for the National Arts Festival (Grahamstown 28 June to 7 July) which was announced this week. Several important new theatre pieces focus closely on the tender moments when two souls find common ground. The music programme is infused with the overwhelming...

2007-03-23
Dis laat 1973. Sussie dog die hele gesin gaan net na die winkel op die hoek vir brood en melk, maar nee - hulle trek Kaap toe. En so leer Sussie twee belangrike lewenslesse: Mik vir Kaapstad – dalk tref jy Kuilsrivier. As Nakkie haar hare laat perm en set, is jy in vir ‘n ding.

In die land van die Liefde: 'n Verslag van die Woordfees se Skrywersgala!
Melt Myburgh - 2007-03-15
Aanvanklik was ek huiwerig om vanjaar se Skrywersgala tydens die Stellenbosse Woordfees by te woon. Ek was nie lus om, soos in die verlede, te luister hoe skrywersname in vibrato-grafstemme oor luidsprekers uitgeroep word voordat ons voorste pennestoters halfblind die treetjies na die HB Thom-teater se verhoog bestyg nie. Soos skape ter slagting. Ek het veral nie kans gesien vir die gebruiklike amateuragtige projeksie-oefeninge van dramastudente wat telkens sukkel om hul woorde te onthou tussen...

Hallo Taalvriend Het jy al ooit gewonder oor die oorsprong van die frase, Catch 22, of waar die heilig koei rêrig vandaan kom? Of, het jy geweet dat om vinger te trek, eintlik niks te doen het met die menslike anatomie nie, maar wel met antieke skeepsvaart? Koppel hierdie terg-vrae en inligting aan die vooruitsig om 'n uur in die geselskap van Anton Prinsloo deur te bring, en jy het 'n wenresep! Anton is die man van Wagwoorde-faam, en skrywer van die uiters suksesvolle Spreekwoorde en waar...

Die Cederbergfees, wat vanjaar sy eerste dekade vier, vind weer van 26 tot 29 April in Clanwilliam - die hartjie van die Rooiboswêreld - plaas.

Elizabeth de Villiers, wat saam met Stephanie Hough in die rolverdeling is, vertel meer oor die storie agter dié drama. 1. Kruissteek … klink na 'n makabere storie? Van waar kom die storie?

Nuut op ons rak ... die Voete Fees 12 - 13 en 14 Oktober 2007. Hierdie fees gaan vanjaar vir die eerste keer aangebied word. Die idee agter die hele fees is om sport te promoveer. Aangesien die Voet van Afrika Marathon vanjaar 30 jaar oud is en almal hom reeds goed ken, is daar besluit om die marathon 'n bietjie kleur en geur te gee en word daar 'n streekfees beplan. Dit behels dat sport, sport en nogmaals sport hierby betrek sal word. Maar dit is nie al nie. Daar word reeds na kunstenaars...
