In the May issue of Creative Feel, we feature cultural icon and legendary actor John Kani with a stunning portrait taken by one of our favourite photographers, Brett Rubin. This month, we chat to John Kani, James Ngcobo and Charmaine Weir-Smith as the Market Theatre puts on their Athol@86 season in celebration in one of the country’s most acclaimed playwrights, Athol Fugard. And after an absence of 45 years, Gibson Kente’s musical drama “How Long?” returns to The Playhouse Company. MTN Bushfire 2018 brings even more fire, Londiwe Khoza grapples with ‘Gaga’ and the country’s most supportive art and design prize winners are announced. We check out the ultimate hits collection from the ‘Lord of Musicals’, take a look at a global music and arts experience with the Soweto International Jazz Festival, and see that Joburg’s creative hub is looking towards Lorentzville. In our art news, an unseen and thrilling Preller goes on sale, we feature an auction house with a rich history, and dive into the development of value in the SA Art Market.
P.S. See our March cover featuring Hugh Masekela to see why we love Brett Rubin’s photography so much: https://creativefeel.co.za/product/march-2018/
