Black Panther

Black Panther

Joburg Ballet

The incredible global success of ‘Black Panther’ has placed Africa at the epicentre of contemporary popular culture. For centuries, this continent has been eroded and exploited by the forces of colonialism and globalisation. Through the fictional nation of Wakanda, the film gives us a glimpse of how Africa might have prospered had these forces never existed. Although we can never change our past, ‘Black Panther’ shows us how important it is to protect and preserve our African-ness now and for future generations.

Joburg Ballet jumped at the opportunity to incorporate a Wakanda-inspired episode into our #BreakingBallet series. It features the indomitable Monika Cristina, Kitty Phetla and Claudia Monja as Dora Milaje warriors, laying down a challenge to any would-be adversaries of African culture. Visit Joburg Ballet HERE

Take yours and I’ll take mine
On the right hand side
And I’ll rest and you’ll find that you take rest in wine
So take these words and make them right
So one day you and I will write our names in the sky
We’ll confide

And I’ll find mine on the right of Your side
And I’ll find mine on the right of Your side
If I throw away my fear and pride to set things right
Then I’ll find mine on the right of Your side

Brothers and sisters
Fill these cups with life
Please forgive them
‘cos they know not their lies
So take these words and make them right
So one day you and I will write our names in the sky
We’ll confide

And I’ll find mine on the right of Your side
And I’ll find mine on the right of Your side
If I throw away my fear and pride to set things right
Then I’ll find mine on the right of Your side

And I’ll find mine on the right of Your side
And I’ll find mine on the right of Your side
If I throw away my fear and pride to set things right
Then I’ll find mine on the right of Your side

I know why the way I am and the way I think I want to be
Isn’t right
I hear you speak, but only listen selfishly
And I think I’m right
But all I do is circle curiosity
And I hear the lies
But if I’d listen openly, you’d set them free

Heal my broken heart
Heal my broken heart
I’m falling away and I’m falling away
But I’m looking up into the light
Heal my broken heart

I open my eyes
I hear your voice
I see your face
I feel your love
And I confide
The power in your promise
I will take hold of

Heal my broken heart
Heal my broken heart
I’m falling away and I’m falling away
But I’m looking up into the light
Heal my broken heart

I’m running away but I want to
Be never afraid and hold on to
Whatever you say ’cause I’m falling down

Heal my broken heart
Heal my broken heart
I’m falling away and I’m falling away
But I’m looking up into the light
Heal my broken heart

250km of Single Track Happiness

[Old Mutual joBerg2c ]

The Old Mutual joBerg2c is riding the off-roads less travelled and trails never travelled. It is racing, riding and touring across this magnificent country. It is sharing a passion for mountain biking with those who love riding.

From the creators of South Africa’s two favourite mountain bike stage races, the Berg & Bush and Sani2c, comes a ride set to capture the imagination of passionate mountain bikers across the country, if not the world. Starting in the south of Johannesburg and finishing nine days later at Scottburgh on the KwaZulu-Natal coast. Part race part adventure, the Old Mutual joBerg2c takes competitors through the country, from the heat and dust of the big city to the cool crisp air of the sea via spectacular mountainous passes.
