The acclaimed Dance of The Butterfly Event takes place on Sunday 26 February 2017 at King David with Goldilox – to support lead singer Jarred who is battling brain cancer.TV and radio producer/Presenter Paulinah Somo will once again be the celebrity co-host, alongside highly-acclaimed well-known actor and drama teacher Renos Nicos Spanoudes.
The “Dance of The Butterfly” is the only official licenced event to screen The Forever Changed Documentary, in support of The Forever Changed Global Awareness Campaign. The campaign objective is to spread the message of choice and prevention for health enthusiasts, care-givers, including newly diagnosed warriors who all benefit enormously from understanding how to face life-after diagnosis. Not only will audiences be empowered, but will also be entertained.
Member of Parliament and Member of the Judicial Services Commission, Narend Singh who recently attended the KZN media launch, says “This documentary is an eye-opener which reminds us of things we should already know. There is a powerful message that needs to be shared with all, not only warriors, but with doctors and oncologists. Addi is a true warrior for the cause”.
Goldilox’ genre, described as Alternative Funk, Blues with Indi, with a Hip Hop fusion, has recently made a long-awaited comeback following lead singer Jarred Wood’s battle with brain cancer and on-going recovery from surgery and radiation. Formed 5 years ago, Goldilox is a thriving 6-member band with influences that differ, as do their individual interests but when combined, they create a sound like no other. Placed 2nd in Klipdrift Battle of The Bands 2014, Goldilox is now playing the circuits around Jhb, with performances coming up at Garden Shmarden, Rumours Lounge and appearing on the Ripple Zone Stage at Smoking Dragon in December.
Already seen throughout Gauteng, KZN and Cape Town, the most recent event held at King David Linksfield’s auditorium, paid tribute to the memory of well-known South African actor and fallen warrior, Jannes Eiselen who recently lost his 6-year battle, with his family members in attendance. Celebrities included Ingi Herbst Brough, Danelle Drury, Sello Masinga, with well-known casting director Thorsten Wedekind, and Christa Schamberger’s casting assistant Ben Tjibe. Also in attendance was Carel Piet van Eeden aka Cancer Coach (male breast cancer warrior).
Performers included Debbie Motladi, (in South Africa for a short time before returning to LA to continue her performing career), with Goldilox entertaining the audience. Guest performer, (in support of his brave warrior brother), was 25-year-old Joshua Wood, an independent singer/songwriter/musician based in Johannesburg. Inspired by contemporary indie, RnB and alternative influences, Joshua’s music aims to celebrate our differences and unify us through a common struggle … ”too sad to be happy but certainly too happy to be sad” Joshua will be playing at Wolves on 17 November and see his facebook page to keep up to date with upcoming performances.
