Yes, I know that I have been somewhat tardy about uploading regular blogs. And I have been suitably chastised by several of our regular readers.
The reason for my tardiness is that I have been distracted and consumed by the (re)launch of our phenomenal Sex & Slaves in the City “tour”. I hesitate to use the word “tour”, because Dean and Samantha have elevated this to the status of superb street theatre.
They have taken a well researched narrative about the lives of slaves at the Cape and with humour, choreography and ingenuity they manage to bring that part of our history to life. While many prefer to forget that dark era, Sam and Dean celebrate the enormous contributions made by our slave ancestors to the Cape Town of today. And they skillfully (and respectfully) convey this information in a thoroughly entertaining and digestible manner.
This is a necessary activity in Cape Town! Don’t miss it.
