The Blaqpearl Foundation presents the one-woman music theatre production Storie van my lewe at the Jolly Carp, in Retreat, on Friday 29 September.
Starring well-known performing artist, poet and writer, Janine Van Rooy-Overmeyer (also known as Blaq Pearl), Storie van my lewe follows the journey of four women from Cape Town through storytelling, poetry and music, while sharing their experiences, struggles and triumphs. Through Storie van my lewe, Van Rooy-Overmeyer channels the stories of these four women that are very different from one another. Yet, what they have in common is their courage, strength and ability to rise above their circumstances.
Written and created by Van Rooy-Overmeyer, in partnership with Director Chenal Kock and Production Manager Shane Overmeyer; the showcase aims to edutain the audiences regarding the importance of each human being’s story, with the hope that one can reflect and respect each other’s journeys throughout life. Van Rooy-Overmeyer launches her show at the Cape Town Fringe Festival 2017 and plans on touring the production to various theatres in different communities in the coming months. “The aim is to bring awareness to diverse people about the importance and relevance of life stories. Everyone’s story matters”, she added.
