Art, theatre, dance and music will collide in the heart of Durban when Over Exposed takes centre stage at the Rivertown Shed from January 26 to 28 at 19h00 for 19h30.

Presented by the irrepressible creative David Gouldie, this site-specific interactive performance experience will culminate in a party reminiscent of the heady days of the DDC after-parties at the harbour’s N-Shed.

Expect the unexpected as Gouldie and a cast of Durban’s hottest and most daring performers and DJs take you on a sensory journey, taking a dash of inspiration from Springbok Radio’s iconic Squad Cars – and much more.

The nostalgia culminates after the gala performance on January 28 when the venue transforms into a massive warehouse party featuring some of the country and city’s most exciting acts. Headlined by Crazy White Boy, Sound Language and Veranda Panda, the line-up will also include 330 legend Martin McHale and DJs Funky B, Craig Rude, Cathy Machale, Madlove, DJ Rooinek and Coco Loco.

“The venue at 130 Stalwart Simelane (Stanger) Street will be transformed into a mad and breathtaking world of sensory stimulation overload,” said Gouldie. “For three days only, around 60 of Durban’s hottest artists will come out to play, so plug in your chargers and get your lipstick ready!”

In a unique theatre experience, guests will be taken on a 360 degree multi-media journey of discovery incorporating six stages, television sets and 12 projector screens.

“It will be like being in a movie – fully interactive and packed with surprises,” said Gouldie. “It is about making art in the city that breeds cutting-edge talent. I live, love and breathe Durban and this is a celebration of its creative community – everyone is lending a hand to make this happen.”

Over Exposed tickets R150 for performances on January 26 and 27. Tickets for the gala show and after party on January 28 are R250. A bar and refreshments will be available.

Crazy White Boy’s music has been described as a blend of kwaito and house rhythms with elements of electro, which the duo has coined as “Ghetto Tech”. Their music has earned them multiple gold and platinum selling albums and a Sama nomination for Song of the Year for their hit single Love you Better.

Dynamic Durban duo Veranda Panda, featuring an exciting synergy of violin and electronica, are a hot Durban dance favourite, while Cape Town outfit Sound Language promise to rock the city with their serious beats.

Tickets for the warehouse party only (starting 21h00) are R100 pre-sale or R150 at the door. Tickets are limited, so early booking for all shows is advised. Tickets are available at
