The massively popular and uniquely Capetonian musical production with Cape Minstrels & Malay Choirs, THE JIVE CULTURE SHOCK, returns for another season of dance and performance, online – in association with Jive and YMA Consulting.
Performed and filmed at the Artscape Theater under strict Covid-19 protocols, the musical production THE JIVE CULTURE SHOCK will air online every Saturday in November 2021.
The first season of this particularly popular production introduced South African audiences to the top talents of the various Cape Minstrels & Malay Choirs, as this concept was born under Covid-19 lockdown regulations in 2020.
The livelihoods of many artists and technicians have been affected by the ban on live events. And with the cancellation of local cultural events, producers saw the opportunity to provide a safe alternative to this type of cultural expression, which is why THE JIVE CULTURE SHOCK was created, creating many job opportunities in the process.
This production will see 2 teams compete with a 20-minute theatrical presentation throughout each of the three weekly episodes; a cultural mini-musical if you will!
All six teams will perform in the final, as they compete in the more traditional competition format of the English Comic and Nederlandse Lied categories, to determine the overall winner.
The winners will be chosen by a panel of selected judges, namely; Rushney Ferguson, Carlo Daniels, Felicia Lesch and Armien Vardien, with an additional guest judge appearing in each episode with comments from invited audience members.
This year, the producers aim to empower attendees by implementing on-stage and off-stage professional training, which includes training for social media managers with the help of Jive and 3Kilo and the addition of mentors who will improve performance. skills and help teams in their productions.
Mentors who help teams reach their full potential on stage are Tashreeq De Villiers facilitating stage performances, Kyle Stuurman assisting with choreography and Sam Crouch facilitating vocal coaching. Musical director Tauriq Blignaut and conductor Brett Edwards will lead the impressive group of 10 musicians.
If that’s not all, there will also be a charitable giving campaign during each episode to raise funds for the Fusion Inyameko Foundation as well as the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Trust. Patrons can also donate through the Quicket platform when they purchase their tickets and are invited to get involved in these worthy causes.
Audience members can financially support their favorite teams by selecting their team name for each episode.
