On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Tamara Guhrs about the Concert for Khanya.
Concert for Khanya.
Saturday 26th August, 6 for 6:30pm – a unique event to raise funds for Khanya Paton-Mills, an alumni of Sacred Heart College and a young dancer who has been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Khanya’s story has inspired her former drama teacher, peers, friends and colleagues to put together a unique event – an evening of performance, poetry, dance and song. Organiser Tamara Guhrs describes it as “an oasis amidst the bleakness of the world right now – a tribute to Khanya’s bravery and an opportunity for us to show her we care, through a medium she loves – performance.”
Highlights will include poetry by ground-breaking poet Koleka Putuma, a mime/clowning act by Liezl de Kok, drama teachers being put on the spot by their former students, and a special performance by the talented Paton-Mills family themselves, embodying the words of their grandfather and great-grandfather Alan Paton’s Cry the Beloved Country.
