NZLEE Productions presents Ashalin Singh in Ashraf Johaardien’s award-winning play SALAAM STORIES at St Martin's In Johannesburg at the end of February and at Theatre Arts Admin Collective in Cape Town and POPArt Theatre in Maboneng Johannesburg in March. The production is supported by the National Arts Council of South Africa and will be directed by newcomer Niquita Hartley under the mentorship of Standard Bank Young Artist alumna and Naledi Award-winner Jade Bowers. Set against the historical backdrop of the Cape slave trade and the Malay diaspora in South Africa, Johaardien’s award-winning play has been performed in London, New York, Amsterdam and all over South Africa. According to Nigel Vermaas, “SALAAM STORIES is no religious tract; it’s a carefully constructed cultural entertainment. Although Johaardien is serious about Muslim issues, there are lots of laughs; most of them gentle … some treading into the territory of Kaapse vaudeville.” Through artful storytelling, the playwright focuses themes of identity, history and group belonging through an intimately personal lens taking audiences on a journey across the Cape Flats to Robben Island – and then to and from Bombay – back in time, to the 17th century, when the Dutch were at war with the Portuguese. Moving fluidly through multiple timeframes, a colourful community of characters is conjured to life from the recesses of memory, history and imagination. “There have been several incarnations of SALAAM STORIES internationally but it is significant that nobody else has ever been granted the rights to direct, produce or perform this particular version,” comments Standard Bank Award alumna Jade Bowers who previously directed the play. “That’s because the solo version of the play has, up to now, only really existed in relation to Ashraf’s own identity as a creative and cultural being.” Ashalin Singh graduated from Wits University in 2011 as an actor, writer and director. He has performed in a number . . .
As someone with a passion for sport, University of Johannesburg's Taren Naidoo is relishing her opportunity to work with some of the top sportswomen in the country. The 31-year-old sports scientist is part of the department at UJ and was last year appointed to work with the national women's hockey team under her former mentor, Robin van Ginkel. Naidoo, who grew up in Dundee and Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal but now lives in Sandton, said it was the "ultimate accomplishment to get to work with a senior national team". "Representing your country in any way is a privilege and I am humbled and excited all at once," she said. "It is great to work alongside the brains of the industry - coaches and medical staff - and with the most talented athletes in our country. "I owe my parents, brother and sister so much for supporting me in all I do. My supervisor [Professor Andrew McKune] from the University of KZN, who is now based at the Australian Institute of Sport, also played a huge role in my journey to this point." Naidoo said she was thrilled to renew a relationship with the former UJ women's hockey coach. "Robin is truly an inspiration who I admire and respect. I worked with him at UJ sport, where he was head of the sports science department. "His high-performance strategies saw the department grow immensely and I learnt a great deal from him in this environment." Initially eager to become a physiotherapist, Naidoo's plans were stymied when she realised she needed physics as a major. "The faculty officers at the university suggested occupational therapy, speech and hearing, and sports science," she said. "So I picked sports science. "I was not a talented sport person but at school and varsity I participated in everything - water polo, badminton, hockey, tennis, basketball, rhythmic gymnastics, netball. You name it, if I had time I was there and would get involved." Having qualified from UKZN with honours in sports science and a . . .

Seventy reasons to enjoy Roodeberg in 2019 Roodeberg, the legendary red blend that has been bringing friends together the world over since 1949, celebrates its 70th anniversary this year. A true South African original that has stood the test of time, Roodeberg is the heart and soul of memorable get-togethers in the company of good friends. There are big plans afoot for 2019 so keep your eyes peeled and hop on board to celebrate Roodeberg’s 70th milestone year with upcoming new wine launches, promotions and events. Roodeberg’s rich heritage and colourful tapestry of wine folklore, has seen this signature red evolve from the master’s original blend to an accessible, contemporary classic in step with ever changing tastes and lifestyles. Launched in 1949, Roodeberg is the brainchild of Dr Charles Niehaus, a legendary pioneer of the South African wine industry, who developed new red blends at KWV in the early 40s. Roodeberg soon became one of the country’s biggest export wine brands and although it was not readily available in the local market until 2004, it enjoyed iconic status in the hearts and minds of South Africans. From the onset, every bottle of Roodeberg had a story to tell. At the time, locals could only obtain Roodeberg through a wine farming acquaintance with a KWV quota. It is said that bartering sought-after test match tickets, biltong and the like in return for a bottle or two was a common occurrence. For many Roodeberg still conjures up fond memories of people, places and occasions, and of sharing special life-changing moments with family and friends, often with rare vintages squirreled away. Dr Niehaus retired in 1971 leaving and indelible mark on the world of wine. Today, Louwritz Louw follows the string of fine winemakers who have borne the torch Dr Niehaus first lit, proudly continuing the Roodeberg tradition.

South African cyclists are poised to add a significant element of style to their riding in 2019 with the premium Spanish brand of Luck shoes available in the country through Positive Sports Solutions. The deal with the Spanish company was finalised in October and the first consignment of their wide range of shoes arrived in South Africa just after mid-December. Positive Sports Solutions product and technical manager David Pieterse said there had been much interest from customers in the Luck models.

Pieterse added, however, that it was not just the colour variety which made Luck shoes popular among cyclists.
