This event welcomes 2 local talents within the borders of South Africa. One is a famous artist who goes by the name William Kentridge and one of South Africa’s leading pianist and composer of this generation Kyle Shepherd. Both have inspired many in their unique profession. They join forces to perform in the collaborative concert Why Should I Hesitate. This is not an event not to miss. Come and get inspired by South Africa’s only best to see what is on offer.
THE PERFORMANCE INLUDES A SECTION OF:
- Kurt Schwitters’ Ursonate which Kentridge has performed with various musicians in different cities.
- Live piano performance by Shepherd to a charcoal animation film, still in progress, by Kentridge.
- Part rehearsed and part free improvisation
The evening promises to be an interesting exploration of the relationship of sound, word and image – how the image affects what you hear, how the sound affects what you see.
