Scene It: Creatives of Langa

Venue address:
Washington St, Langa, Cape Town

The details

Scene It harnesses the collective power of short videos to promote creatives in Cape Town.

Via a series of public campaigns, it curates the best short video submissions to create themed video ‘routes’.

Langa is home to a large number of creative people. Notable residents include the “Black Madonna” - the late Brenda Fassie - as well as playwright and theatre director Fatima Dike, jazz diva Silvia Mdunyelwa and rising poet Zolani Balekwa.

Although Langa has its theatre at Guga s’Thebe, it is still hard for many Langa creatives to develop an audience that can sustain them in their creative goals. Scene It's aim is not only to build on this hotspot at Guga s’Thebe, but also to enable the performers seen here to add videos at other hotspots across the W. Cape, and so develop the audiences of which they are worthy.

Click on the website link to view the videos or - better still - head to Guga s'Thebe in Langa and find the QR code to watch the videos in the same place in which they were filmed. You can also film and submit your own video for consideration!

You can find the QR code on the noticeboard just inside the main entrance.
