Artscape Theatre in collaboration with Afrovibes Festival, supported by the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands is set to present the much awaited “ALLBASTERS”, a hip hop production that kicks off the Artscape “12to12/06-76” 40-year commemoration of June 16 to be held at Artscape Theatre from 15 – 16 June 2016.

 The ALLBASTERS is a derivative of the Afrikaans word “albasters” which plays on the idea that we are ALL BASTERS “coloured” “mixed” and to most of us that idea is a “harde neut om te kraak”.
 The production is built on the opinion that we are more than what we claim to be, grounded in the subliminal friendship between Afrikaans and Dutch language and culture. It tells the story about the commonalities shared between South Africa and the Netherlands through the exploration and interrogation of hip hop music and culture relating to one another.

ALLBASTERS will feature the award winning Hemelbesem who will be collaborating with an all-star cast such as the well-known Dutch hip hop artists Skafalau aka Helberg, revolutionary Dutch female hip hop artist Marikit, Afrikaans music icon Gian Groen, James Bhemgee (SA Got talent winner and opera singer), Afrikaans female MC Yoma, Herman Kleynhands (Afrivisie winner), Linkris (veteran Cape Town hip hop artist, ATKV’s tannie Francis Brown, Die Hooflig (Boland Godfather of hip hop) and many more.
