The show Trash Cabaret will be at the Guga S’thebe Cultural Centre in Langa on Saturday November 26. The multi-cultural circus cabaret extravaganza features more than 70 performing artists, including burlesque dancers, acrobats, fire performers, mixed martial artists, dancers and musicians, led by ringmaster Riaan Smit against the auditory backdrop of a full brass band.
Confirmed performers include the Unknown Dance Crew, ActionArte and Black Orchid Burlesque, in collaboration with the Rouge Revue. The show takes place from 7pm to 11pm and guests can use a shuttle service that will leave from behind the Spar in Observatory at 6pm.
Transport tickets can be bought on Quicket or concertgoers can pay the bus driver the fee of R20 directly. There will be parking available for those who go to the venue by car.
Tickets for Trash Cabaret: Live in Langa are 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 percent 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.
