Twilight performances set in wilderness

Ché Adams

Flamenco dancer and teacher Ché Adams from Hout Bay will be performing in Constellations, a series of intimate evenings performed in the wilderness at Spier from Friday November 4 to Saturday November 19.

Small groups of spectators are guided into the twilight on one of two routes along the banks of the Eerste Rivier.

Each route links four sites in glades amongst the trees, each hosted by a “Guardian”: a performance artist, a dancer, a musician, a storyteller.

Spectators spend 20 minutes at each of the four sites on their route: four bursts of colour, sound and movement and as usual, Constellations is something of a mystery tour where the audiences have no idea which of the artists they will encounter on their nocturnal journey.

Constellations runs at Spier on Fridays and Saturdays, with arrival at 6pm. Tickets start at R200 a person and include a glass of Spier wine on arrival. Advance booking is required and tickets are available via Webtickets. No under 12’s are allowed. There is a 20-minute walk through the farm along uneven ground to the first stop so visitors must wear walking shoes and dress warmly.
