Performing Arts Bulawayo [PAB] and the Academy [Bulawayo]

Diamonds Are Forever (27 November)
Thursday 27 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
'Diamonds Are Forever' was the seventh Bond film and the last to star Sean Connery who was coaxed back for a final appearance with a then-record salary of $1.25 million after George Lazenby declined to continue the series. The story has Bond impersonating a diamond smuggler to infiltrate a smuggling ring, and soon uncovering a plot by his old nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the man who had murdered Bond's new wife as they left on honeymoon.
'Connery has a ball with great stunts, snappy dialogue and a bevy of typically Bondish beauties.' [Empire Magazine, April 24, 2008]
Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]
Supper available from 6.15 p.m. ($6.00)

Richard Strauss: Ariadne auf Naxos (28 November)
Friday 28 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
A final celebration of Richard Strauss in his sesquicentenary year comes with 'Ariadne auf Naxos'. The opera follows events at the home of the wealthiest man in Vienna, who has booked both a comedy burlesque act and a serious opera group for entertainment. When the dinner runs late, he declares that both forms of entertainment must take place at the same time - much to the chagrin of the opera's proud young composer: what happens next is uproarious, unpredictable -and ultimately sublime.
Admission: $3.00  [free to Red Carpet members]
Dinner available during the interval ($10.00)

Academy Showcase (3 December)
Wednesday 3 December in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.00 p.m.
Soloists, choirs and instrumental groups together with guest performers join together for the Academy's end-of-year concert including the first performance in Zimbabwe of Olly Cox's 'We Can Fly', specially written for the Commonwealth Games.
Admission; $2.00  Snacks available before and after the concert.

Minkus: Don Quixote (5 December)
Friday 5 December in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
The ballet 'Don Quixote' was first performed at Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre in 1869, produced and choreographed by Marius Petipa. Carlos Acosta, having danced in it all over the world, responded immediately when he was invited to revive the ballet for the Royal Opera House and for 21st century audiences. Whilst concerned to preserve its basic classical style, he wanted to overlay a freer more spontaneous element, injecting more colour, more humour, something of spontaneous fun and pantomime even...
Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]. Dinner available during the interval ($10.00)

A Carol Service Friday (12 December)
Friday 12 December in the Robert Sibson Hall at  7.00 p.m.
Wings over Jordan conducted by Misheck Ndlovu brings a traditional carol Service to the Academy with a mixture of well-loved carols and hymns for audience and choir together with some less well-known choir items.
Admission: Free

FINE ART & EXHIBITIONS


UMOJI  Emoji Exhibition @ KooVha Gallery (27 November)
7 avant garde fine artists, Ngoni Tsiga, Masimba Hwati, Franklin Dzingai, Option Nyahunzvi, Kombo Chirisa, Peter Musami and Clive Mukucha create a new depth of expression for today's generation by creating the original Shona Emoji, hereafter referred to as Umoji, referencing Umoja or "unity" in Swahili.
"One eye sees, the other feels", Paul Klee.
Worldwide, most icons to express an emotion or idea (emoticons or emoji) are based primarily on the ubiquitous smiley face. However, most expressions in African languages, like Shona, for instance, do not reference the face at all. A landmark exhibition: expressive, revealing and prescient.
Opening Cocktail: Thursday, 27 November, 5:30pm at KooVha Creative Hub and Gallery, 146 Enterprise Road, Highlands, Harare.
Please RSVP to: <hellokoovha@kokosdiscovery.com>
