Afrikaans music theatre production, Korreltjie Kantel, is a fusion of literature, theatre, music and art.
Korreltjie Kantel is inspired by the love affair, love letters and literary works of Ingrid Jonker and André P Brink. Nick Turner, Luna Paige & Jamie Jupiter put music to Jonker’s poems and write original songs inspired by the love letters that transpired between these two iconic writers.
Actors Wessel Pretorius and Christine Truter play the roles of these two lovers, using words and literature to express their feelings for each other.
The 10 songs on the SAMA nominated album, Korreltjie Kantel, A feast for the eye, the ear and the soul, each give inspiration to works from 10 renowned visual artists. Prints of the original artworks will be exhibited and available for purchase.
The artworks are by:
Antoinette Cloete Nel
Louis Jansen van Vuuren
Shany van den Berg
