UJ’s UNFESTIVAL Programme announced

University of Johannesburg Arts Culture Unfestival UJ


An online work by another unknown artist, Ndilindile, is an un-experience about the annoyance and frustration of being stood-up on a first date, being stranded at a taxi rank, or perhaps waiting in a doctor’s room for an appointment with a doctor who no longer works at the practice (see, you made your booking online). Translated from isiXhosa (on Google!), the word ndilindile variously means ‘I am waiting’, ‘my friend’ or ‘I hope’.
‘If we got the translation wrong, please let us know, and sincere apologies in advance. We weren’t expecting to present this groundbreaking experience this year but given the circumstances, we couldn’t delay an opportunity for you to not be disappointed. Please purchase a ticket, because it’s for two really great causes. Go on, do the right thing, even if it’s annoying,’ says Lakin Morgan-Baatjies who heads up marketing at UJ Arts & Culture.
