MDDK-talent skitter

FOTO: Zayana Moosa, Ntsakisi Shingange en Amelia Booth maak gereed vir hul optrede. Op Woensdag, 10 Mei, het die MDDK, Hoërskool Merensky se unieke kunsteskool, die eerste “Thrilling”-geleentheid van 2018 in die skoolsaal aangebied.  ‘n Groot aantal akteurs, sangers, musikante en dansers het die gehoor vermaak met hul talent. Soos gebruiklik, het die aand ook gesorg vir ‘n aantal eerstes: die fotografieklas het ‘n uitstalling gehad van interessante foto’s, terwyl die kunsstudente elkeen ‘n potloodskets van ‘n wilde dier vertoon het. Die kraakvars-klankspan was ene ywer en het Murphy sleg op sy neus laat kyk. Allerlei kunstenaars het die planke behoorlik laat praat met goed afgeronde en aanskoulike items. Dit…

FOTO: Derius Erasmus Hoërskool Merensky se Musiek-, Dans-, Drama- en Kunsskool (die MDDK) is opgewonde om mnr. Derius Erasmus as nuwe kitaartutor te verwelkom. Erasmus is ‘n oudPlasie wat op 17-jarige ouderdom sy kitaartande by Merensky se musiekskool, wat later jare herdoop is tot die MDDK, gesny het. Behalwe vir sy argitektuuragtergrond is Erasmus ook ‘n kranige fotograaf. Sy musiekvideos, animasies en grafiese werk word hoog aangeslaan. Die musiekgogga - meer spesifiek die rock-genre - het hom tydens sy studentejare behoorlik gebyt. In 2004 het hy by sy eerste orkes, D-Day 4 Ever, aangesluit. DD4E het twee albums opgeneem, in 2006 by Oppikoppi opgetree en ook later by Woodstock 7…
