Unusual gems to enjoy at the 2016 Hilton Arts Festival


One Man One Light

THIS year’s Hilton Arts Festival, which runs from September 16 to September 18 at Hilton College, features several extremely unusual pieces for those seeking something out of the ordinary.


Inspired by the Italian La Linea cartoon series, One Man One Light explores and showcases the versatility of a single light source through its interaction with a solitary performer. If we allow our imagination the freedom and licence to run wild we can give anything a ‘voice’ and venture into exciting and unexplored territory.

This little gem of a production has been created by Michael Broderick, David Gouldie, Liam (Veranda Panda) Magner, Nick Britz and Colin Peddie. it is a groundbreaking and unique concept which has played to packed houses in the UK and Germany.

See One Man One Light at 12.30 pm and 1 pm on Friday, September 16, 5.30 pm and 6 pm on Saturday, September 17, and 3 pm and 3.30 pm on September 18 in the Drama Centre. Tickets are R75.




Kristin NG-Yang’s exhibition includes installation, performances, prints, drawings and photographs. It deploys metaphors that allude to the ephemera of air and water, of love being subject to fate. The visual work and music is meditative on life’s journey into inevitable oblivion. The audience may interact with the tactile installed elements after a live performance.

Bird/Fish is curated by Prof. Juliette Leeb-du Toit and performed by Tegan Peacock and Bonwa Mbontsi.

Entrance to the exhibition is free. Performances are ticketed. The exhibition will be open from 9.30 am to 5 pm daily.


Richard Haslop is a practising labour lawyer who has been involved with music most of his life. He is best known for the wildly-eclectic radio shows he presented on Radio SA and SAfm, and for the thousands of pieces he has written about music for the past 30 years for many national and international publications.

Rob has lectured history of music courses on African-American popular music, the music business, world music, the blues and country music.

He presents three music happenings:

  • Bob Dylan and the Folk and Blues Tradition;
  • I write the songs … then again, maybe I don’t. Plagiarism, Plunder and Piracy in pop; and
  • Political Song at 331/4 revolutions per minute.
