“Let’s go fly a kite, up to the highest height” urge the Banks family in the iconic Walt Disney 1964 musical, Mary Poppins.
Change of season, and sunny, blustery weather is perfect to kite flying weather. There are days set aside to encourage this participative, fun, family activity – in some countries, it’s this week, others promote third Sunday in April. Either way, basic kites are easy to make, standard shop-bought ones are plentiful and specialist power kites are available for the more serious enthusiast.
Testing out his kite flying abilities is actor / singer, Daniel Anderson, who is in town to perform in the remarkable Vincent, an award-winning, multimedia cabaret about the famous artist, Vincent van Gogh – a complex man with a ruthless drive to create and a deep-seated desire to love and be loved. The show tells of the artist’s search for love, told through reimagined versions of popular musical theatre, pop, rock and jazz numbers.
The photo was taken in 1000 Hills – where there are plenty of picturesque places to enjoy a family day out… and to fly a kite.
Vincent with pianist Paul Ferreira, is produced by Wela Kapela. It is on at the Rhumbelow in Durban this weekend: today, Saturday 13 at 2pm and 7.30pm and tomorrow Sunday 14 April at 2pm and Rhumbelow Northlands in Durban North: 19, 20, 21 April – all at 7.30pm. Email bookings or COMPUTICKET
