What's it all about?

Visitors buy a ticket for specific routes – there are seven in total. During one of these unforgettable journeys between three different homes in Darling, you will see three performances. It involves all areas of Darling.

The element of surprise; your adventure starts on a taxi ride to your first venue, and the performance there will remain a mystery until it starts.  The homes you will visit will range from small township abodes, to the Cape Dutch homes of Darling. We want you to experience a truly South African cultural sphere. An exciting mix of theatre genres provide for all tastes. Local taxi companies are employed for this weekend to transport everyone to the various destinations.

The concerts in Darling resident's living rooms, include a variety of dance, music, drama, comedy, storytelling and magic.

We are looking forward to 2014...
