Head to Hermanus for ‘FynArts’ festival

If you’re in the mood for a mid-year break then head out to Hermanus in June.

The quality 10-day festival, Hermanus FynArts, will celebrate its fifth year from 9 to 18 June with a showcase of the creativity of South African artists in the natural beauty of the Cape Whale Coast.

There is something for everyone on the programme of events that make up this fusion of arts festival and winter school, including exhibitions, music, talks, demonstrations, workshops, tastings, films, and events for children.

This year, festival artist Willie Bester headlines the series of 33 exhibitions with his solo exhibition, Transformation, curated by Michael Godby and Sandra Klopper.

Bester’s current work addresses the demise of the dream of the “Rainbow Nation”.

The performance series includes seven major concerts, four of which will be under the direction of conductor Richard Cock: the Opening Concert, two Broadway Spectacular performances, and Divas of Swing.

The closing weekend presents Swinging 60s and the Lusanda Gospel Group on Saturday 17 June. The next afternoon, Swing, Sing and All That Jazz will bring the festival to a rousing close. This series also includes five evening performances, four lunchtime concerts and three house concerts in the Pam Golding series of house concerts.

The Stephan Welz series of talks and presentations include more than 20 topics ranging from the visual arts and artists, to music, memoirs and history.

Three other series that have become very popular are the Wine Plus Series of Tutored Tastings, curated by Melvyn Minnaar. This year’s theme is Personality – and both the wine and the expert presenters have plenty of it.

The series of 11 demonstrations range from cooking to bronze pouring, while the series of 24 workshops include painting, drawing, writing, ceramics, photography and origami.

The full programme, also in e-booklet format, is at www.hermanusfynarts.co.za. Bookings at www. webtickets.co.za, or at Hermanus FynArts in the Station Building, Mitchell Street, Hermanus, or call 028 312 2629.
