Dancing, parading and celebrating through the past few days – and month – Cape Town is fiercely celebrating pride. These are the final two Cape Town Pride events of the weekend:
Rondebosch United Church in Belmont Road, Rondebosch is hosting a Pride Interfaith Service. The theme of the service is “I am the door.”
The church takes inspiration from John 10:9: “ANYONE who goes through me will be cared for – will freely go in and out.”
Join Rondebosch United Church for a special celebration of identity and spirituality on Sunday, 5 March from 6pm onwards.
The Labia Theatre, known for its beautifully-hosted screenings and display of important, relevant films, is hosting a screening of Dance Me to the End of Time.
A deeply personal film about love in the face of death. Award-winning filmmaker, Melanie Chait, documented the last four years of her life-partner, outspoken lesbian, artist and theatre director, Nancy Diuguid’s life, as she fought breast cancer. Woven into Nancy’s story are insights from US scientist and ecologist, Rachel Carson, whose seminal book, Silent Spring, exposed the health dangers of pesticides.
An ode to the extraordinary Nancy Diuguid, whose life was one of grace, both in the living and leaving of it. The feature documentary is not an extended meditation of death, but a celebration of an energised and involved life.
