Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

“This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
(Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
audience.”

Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
Comedy Club.

The exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

The exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

    Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

The exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

    Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    The Bootleggers series of events is back, this time with some international flavour in the form of cabaret rock band The Dark Blue Orchestra from Paris, France and Cape Town’s electro swing DJ JP Silver.

    The Dark Blue Orchestra steeps the listener in a cabaret-rock universe both broody and romantic in the vein of Ziggy Stardust or Phantom of the Paradise, with a very refined French touch.

    On stage and in the studio, The Dark Blue Orchestra features the semi-autobiographical story of two blood brothers separated at birth: one the hyper-sensitive heir of a local mafia boss and, the other, the disillusioned son of a circus musician, who upon a chance encounter, decide to combine their musical talents and compose requiems to make criminals re-discover their inherent sensitivity.

    Musically, one hears Scott Walker, Tom Waits, Nick Cave and The Doors; all arranged with orchestrations reminiscent of French classical composers Debussy and Ravel.

    After several line-ups, The Dark Blue Orchestra today gathers a fairly colourful bunch: a far-too-meticulous concrete music genius, a frustrated mathematician, two exceptional classical musicians, one rather sour, the other frankly lost, a hair waxed rockabilly thug that swore to change his ways, a nocturnal musicologist and a megalomaniacal poetic justiciar.

    JP Silver is a Cape Town based DJ. He has been in the entertainment industry for 18 years, 11 of which spent as full-time event promoter and DJ, with over 1200 gigs to his credit.

    Although he specializes in Electro Swing these days, JP can cater to most crowds with a variety of genres. His act often includes guest instrumentalists, visuals (projected or on screen) and dancers (Belly Dancers, Swing or Burlesque).

    In addition to a busy schedule of club gigs, festivals and corporate and private functions, JP holds residencies at the Bootleggers Electro Swing parties (founder), with the Trash Cabaret circus band and at The Piano Bar in De Waterkant.

    Silver will be joined on stage by guest instrumentalists Carly Nauta (violin), Zimasa Gysman (clarinet), Gareth Harvey (saxophone), and belly dancer The Mysterious Magdalena, along with his signature big screen visuals. These two headline acts will be supported by Bootleggers resident DJ Django (electro swing, balkan), as well as DJs Moodswing (soulful rock) and Bitchin (funk).

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

The exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

    Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    It is the annual road running event of the Lion of Africa Insurance Itheko Sport AC. The event starts outside of the City Hall in Darling Street and ends on the Grand Parade.  This event is more than just a road race.

    The route travels through the sites that 'slaves' built. 

    This event passes through the Castle of Good Hope, District Six, Gardens, BoKaap, Green Point, The Urban Park,  the V&A Waterfront, through the CBD and onto the Grand Parade.

    The route takes the runners / walkers on a journey that retraces the history and heritage of our 'slave' ancestors and brings the community of Cape Town and South Africa together. This event epitomizes the spirit of Ubhuntu

    The event is started off with a miniature canon shot.

    The participants enjoy 7 Refreshment Stations along the route and when they reach the BoKaap, they are welcomed with a lovely koeksister !

    All finishers receive a cup of Jive and a commemorative medal.  The Children's Hospital Trust is the Race Beneficiary.

    What better way to ensure mom doesn’t spend another Sunday in the kitchen, than to treat her to a lunch fit for a queen? The Townhouse Hotel in Cape Town is pulling out all the stops to make sure that this is the most memorable Mother’s Day yet, for only R348.00pp.

    Centrally located in the heart of Cape Town, guests will be treated to a special menu from Michelin-trained Executive Chef Stefan Schmidt, allowing families to treat mom without anyone needing to lift a finger or worry about who is going to do the dishes.

    Chef Stefan says, “We understand that this is often the only day of the year when moms have the day ‘off’ and families can really show their appreciation. We’ve designed a menu that will make sure no one leaves hungry – while also incorporating a few surprise elements, to really make the moms feel special.”

    To ward off the late autumn chills, lunch will begin with a choice of two hearty soups – either split pea with mint and beef dumplings, or creamy butternut and coriander with herbed croutons. This will be followed by a choice of starters – either tea marinated chicken roulade, which will be served plated, accompanied by a Waldorf salad, pistachio soil and orange jelly, drizzled with a Fynbos dressing or smoked snoek and cucumber cannelloni with pickled exotic mushrooms and an apple-honey mustard dressing.

    Guests will then move onto the main attraction – a buffet fit for royalty. With highlights including sticky citrus chicken, slow roasted lamb shoulder and the ‘catch of the day’ poached in a lemongrass and coconut broth – guests should try to keep space for roasted garlic potatoes and pea and ricotta filled gem squash on the side.

    Ending the day on a sweet note, diners will be able to indulge in a decadent chocolate tiramisu pie, which will be served with white and dark chocolate, a crushed nut sprinkle and chunky raspberry dip accompanied by tea and coffee.                                                                                                                                    

    Due to the popularity of this Mother’s Day lunch, guests are encouraged to book well in advance.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

The exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

    Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of

The exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

    Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

The exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

    Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

The exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

    Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town

How about an individual one-day mountain bike ultra marathon of 160km that is affordable?

    The scenery is beautiful in the Swartland during Autumn and the riding is not technical. 

    Endurance riding has exploded in popularity over recent years and this year will see the seventh edition of The Amarider 100Miler taking place in Malmesbury on the 23rd of May.

    From the humbling beginnings that grew in 2009 to what is now one of the must-do-events on the mountain biking calendar.  The weather conditions play a major role in testing your endurance, as mud, wind or rain do on most outdoor events.

    This event will start early morning just as the sun is rising, with astounding scenery that is spellbound to keep the legs going for many hours. Only pre-entries will be accepted for both distances. Entries are limited and remember that this is a seeding event for Die Burger MTB Challenge 2015.

    The 160km (100Miler) route is divided into three sections of approximately 55km with two compulsory timing checkpoints. The format of the race creates perfect vantage points for spectators and support. 

    While the competition is based on solo riders completing the entire course these riders can form 4-man teams and enjoy a day out with mates on a saddle.

    The team results will be based on the 4th rider crossing the line thereby encouraging teamwork and camaraderie.

    The shorter route option of the 50Miler (80km), starts at the halfway mark at Riebeeck Kasteel and ends with the 100 Miler riders at Swartland Winery.  This event also provides an opportunity for keen riders to taste endurance riding along with twist and turns against the clock.

    Date: Saturday, 23 May 2015

    Time: 07h30

    Distance: 160km with an 80km shorter option

    Venue: Malmesbury

    Cost: R225 - R275 (50Miler). R425 - R475 (100 Miler)

    Pre-entries opened 19 February 2015 and will close on Monday, 18 May 2015. No late entries will be accepted.

    100 MILER INFO:

    Four specatator points - go and support the riders!

    Total route elevation is 1950m

    50 MILER INFO:

    For the not so brave we have the 50 Miler (80km) which starts at Riebeeck Kasteel (Delico Butchery) and finishes in Malmesbury (please note entries are limited and only pre-entries are taken).

    There will be a shuttle from the finish to the start at Delico at 07h30 and there will be no shuttle available in the afternoon

    You have to book & pay R50 for the shuttles and they were fully booked last year.  So please try and arrange lifts with your friends or family. It is a 25km drive from the finish to the start.

    Timing:

    You will need an Amarider Trail Tag to be timed for this event, you will tag in and out at various check points along the route.

    The Trail Tags are available for purchase at R100 or for rent at R50. You’ll use the Tag at most Dirtopia and Amarider events, so you might as well purchase one. If you don’t have a Trail Tag you must purchase a temporary Trail Tag at R50 or a permanent Trail Tag at R100 upon entering.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Delheim unearths forest fare during Wild Mushroom Weekends

    The legendary Delheim Wine Estate is offering avid foragers two ex-cep-tional weekends of wild mushroom hunts in its private forest, for enthusiasts to unearth theses elusive, seasonal delicacies and revel in fungi spotting excitement on 30 & 31 May and 3 & 4 July.

    These foraging excursions are led by Delheim’s Nora Sperling-Thiel and Gary Goldman, a seasoned field expert and mushroom cultivator, and will see intimate groups setting foot for a magical ‘walk on the wild side’, in search of these delicious gems, lurking right there under one’s nose. The whole idea is for visitors to hone their foraging feelers and become comfortable in picking their own mushrooms, whilst embracing the lost art of seasonal foraging.

    After an exhilarating morning, engaging in ‘the silent hunt’ amidst towering pine trees and indigenous flora, foragers will be rewarded with a mushroom-inspired three-course lunch in the historic Vat Cellar which promises to leave the taste buds euphoric.

    “No one should fear the fungi! I will give a short lecture on edible and poisonous mushrooms before we trot off into the forest, so that you know how to identify the good, the bad and the ugly and really enjoy this magical spot at Delheim. There are old mushroom hunters and there are bold mushroom hunters, but there are no bold, old mushroom hunters,” shares Gary who goes by the moniker The Mushroom Hunter.

    “Most mushroom pickers are very tight-lipped about the whereabouts of their sources so this is a golden opportunity,” adds an elated Gary who can spot a camouflaged porcini in no time.

    “Mushrooms simmering in garlic butter is one of my all time favourite smells and evoke fond childhood memories. It is just so much more rewarding if you know where it came from...and even better so if you have foraged it yourself,” adds Nora who grew up on the farm and learned to pick wild mushrooms from her mother.       


    There are only 40 spots available per day as Delheim treasures a delicate balance between sharing their ‘family passion’ and protecting their natural habitat.

    This exploration of the hidden world of the fungi starts at 10am and tickets cost R595 per person. A ticket includes a choice of an exclusive mushroom foraging basket or a Delheim bottle of wine and two glasses to take home; the insightful lecture on mushroom identification; the forest forage, as well as the mushroom-themed three course lunch and a glass of Delheim wine.

    Pre-booking are essential and given the intimate nature of these events, no group bookings are allowed.

    For more information or to secure your spot contact Tel: +27(0)21 888 4600 or send an email to info@delheim.com.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Delheim unearths forest fare during Wild Mushroom Weekends

    The legendary Delheim Wine Estate is offering avid foragers two ex-cep-tional weekends of wild mushroom hunts in its private forest, for enthusiasts to unearth theses elusive, seasonal delicacies and revel in fungi spotting excitement on 30 & 31 May and 3 & 4 July.

    These foraging excursions are led by Delheim’s Nora Sperling-Thiel and Gary Goldman, a seasoned field expert and mushroom cultivator, and will see intimate groups setting foot for a magical ‘walk on the wild side’, in search of these delicious gems, lurking right there under one’s nose. The whole idea is for visitors to hone their foraging feelers and become comfortable in picking their own mushrooms, whilst embracing the lost art of seasonal foraging.

    After an exhilarating morning, engaging in ‘the silent hunt’ amidst towering pine trees and indigenous flora, foragers will be rewarded with a mushroom-inspired three-course lunch in the historic Vat Cellar which promises to leave the taste buds euphoric.

    “No one should fear the fungi! I will give a short lecture on edible and poisonous mushrooms before we trot off into the forest, so that you know how to identify the good, the bad and the ugly and really enjoy this magical spot at Delheim. There are old mushroom hunters and there are bold mushroom hunters, but there are no bold, old mushroom hunters,” shares Gary who goes by the moniker The Mushroom Hunter.

    “Most mushroom pickers are very tight-lipped about the whereabouts of their sources so this is a golden opportunity,” adds an elated Gary who can spot a camouflaged porcini in no time.

    “Mushrooms simmering in garlic butter is one of my all time favourite smells and evoke fond childhood memories. It is just so much more rewarding if you know where it came from...and even better so if you have foraged it yourself,” adds Nora who grew up on the farm and learned to pick wild mushrooms from her mother.       


    There are only 40 spots available per day as Delheim treasures a delicate balance between sharing their ‘family passion’ and protecting their natural habitat.

    This exploration of the hidden world of the fungi starts at 10am and tickets cost R595 per person. A ticket includes a choice of an exclusive mushroom foraging basket or a Delheim bottle of wine and two glasses to take home; the insightful lecture on mushroom identification; the forest forage, as well as the mushroom-themed three course lunch and a glass of Delheim wine.

    Pre-booking are essential and given the intimate nature of these events, no group bookings are allowed.

    For more information or to secure your spot contact Tel: +27(0)21 888 4600 or send an email to info@delheim.com.
