Spruce up your festive Stellenbosch stay with the Spier Light Art Festival
Spruce up your festive Stellenbosch stay with the Spier Light Art Festival

With the spongy green grass of Spier farm beneath our toes and a veritable picnic feast warming our bellies, we couldn't tell if they were shivers of cold from the light breeze rustling through the trees or fear from the otherworldly feathered beings of Stravinsky's Firebird ballet and ghostly lights in the bamboo forest and haunting operatic voices from the Spier Light Art Festival.

Geometry of the heart: A review of artist Lars J. Fischedick
Geometry of the heart: A review of artist Lars J. Fischedick

Artists unavoidably mirror their era. Paradoxically, the more personal their journey, the more universal their message becomes. Such artists are sensitive to their environment, often speaking in a visible, yet wordless language. Their works reflect the hopes and fears of their era, often as direct statements, or as subtle metaphors.

Rami Malek is mesmerising as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody
Rami Malek is mesmerising as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody is a song you've heard at least once. And when you did, it was probably unlike anything you'd ever heard before. It's a song that almost 40 years later is still one of the most influential and memorable songs of all time. It's apt then that a film of Freddie Mercury and Queen's epic journey is named after this legendary song.
