TRASH CABARET BRINGS CARNIVAL OF DREAMS TO LANGA IN NOVEMBER
In the wake of a sold-out event in at Hillcrest Quarry in March, Trash Cabaret is now bringing their remarkable carnival of dreams to the Guga S’thebe Theatre in Langa on the 26th of November.
WHAT IS TRASH CABARET?
Trash Cabaret is a multi-cultural circus cabaret extravaganza featuring artists and performers from around the world. Concertgoers can look forward to a gypsy contingent of 70+ performing artists, including burlesque dancers, acrobats, fire performers, mixed martial artists, dancers and musicians, lead by Ringmaster Riaan Smit of Crimson House against the auditory backdrop of a full brass band. Confirmed performers include the Unknown Dance Crew, Psychedelic Theatre, Sky Dance Studio, ActionArte and Black Orchid Burlesque in collaboration with the Rouge Revue, and so much more.
In short – a glorious night of carnival chaos that brings artists from different backgrounds and cultures together to create a unique circus experience you won’t see anywhere else in South Africa.
WHEN & WHERE?
Trash Cabaret: Live in Langa will be taking place at the Guga S’thebe Theatre (Washington Street, Langa, Cape Town 7456) in Langa on Saturday 26 November from 19:00 – 23:00. Constructed out of old shipping containers, recycled wooden fruit crates, straw and clay, the venue is a prime example of innovation and sustainability, and serves as the cultural hub in Langa.
There will be plenty of safe parking in the vicinity, with a visible squadron of car guards, private security wardens and police support in attendance. Concertgoers can also make use of a shuttle service that will depart from a central pickup point behind the Spar in Observatory at 18:00. Transport tickets can be bought on Quicket or concertgoers can pay the bus driver the fee of R20 directly.
GET YOUR TICKETS!
Tickets for Trash Cabaret: Live in Langa is available from Quicket. The sooner you buy, the cheaper the tickets – the price is determined according to a staggered phasing system, which means an additional R20 is added to the price each week leading up to the event.
In order to support the growth of the arts in South Africa’s informal settlements, 25% of the proceeds will be donated to ActionArte, a social enterprise and NGO that is situated in Hanover Park and runs upliftment projects among the local youth in the form of school programmes, community workshops and a multi-spectrum approach that creates awareness and interest in emerging artists.
