(Bheki Mkhwane)

Multi-talented actor, playwright and producer Bheki Mkhwane will present a concert – and great stories - at 8 Morrison Street, Rivertown. The concert is inspired by the story of convicted turtle poacher turned sculptor, Makotikoti Zikhali. Titled Saving the Turtles through Song it celebrates Makotikoti’s progress in inspiring awareness of the need to protect our oceans.

The line-up features top Durban performers Madala Kunene and Lu Dlamini alongside the inimitable Steve Newman Trio from Cape Town.

Apart from enjoying what promises to be a truly special musical treat, patrons can support the development of the Makotikoti Arts Project (The MAP) into a powerful catalyst for change, ensuring that future generations grow up with an awareness of conservation and the need to conserve wild spaces.

Saving the Turtles through Song takes place on December 15 from 18h30 to 21h30 at 8 Morrison Street, Rivertown. Tickets R200 available at Firebird at 8MS. Those who order items from the evening’s catalogue - Gifts to The World - get complimentary tickets in recognition of their support for The MAP.
