Artists-in-residence to perform at CAS

Matsogo (Hands of Time), a 10-minute solo, will be performed on Tuesday, August 29, at 13h00 by dancer Andile Vellem, choreographed by Mpho Masilela. Having recently premiered at the New Moves African Contemporary Dance Festival in Johannesburg, it has been hailed as having "the makings of a South African classic". On Wednesday, August 30, at 13h00 there will be two works, with a five minute interval between performances. Magogo and Nkulu, a 9-minute duet, and IYO!, a 10-minute trio. Dancers performing will be Hannah Lowenthal, Andile Vellem, Malcolm Black and Xolani Baartman, with music by Neo Muyanga and choreography by Ina Wiechterich.

Inter-res HAICU events

An inter-res HIV/AIDS quiz final will be held at the Baxter Hall Residence from 19h30 to 20h30 on Thursday, 31 August. HIV/AIDS res quizzes were held in June and the victorious teams will now be competing for ultimate honours. Suga, a celebrity radio personality from GoodHope FM, will host the event. Support your res team and come and see whether you can cope with Suga's questions. Additionally, HAICU will be hosting its own The AIDS Amazing Race from 10h30 to 13h30pm on the UCT campus. Teams of four are being selected from each residence as well as the dayhouse to battle it out, trying to accomplish a variety of mind- and body-challenging tasks. Support your res team by cheering them on at the start on Jammie Plaza, and sponsoring them. Money raised will benefit a Khayelitsha-based organisation that supports children affected by HIV and AIDS. Contact Sean Brown at HAICU on 650 3599.
