Marionettes & Manners by Riaan van Zyl

Come and be part of a living exhibition.In the creative spirit of Cape Town Creative Week, leading up to the Loerie Awards, Riaan van Zyl with Cape to Cuba (Long Street) has created a work of art that needs people to complete it.The artwork titled “Marionettes & Manners” is centered around a special reserved table where guests can take on the role of a marionette and step into the artist's world.Puppetry is an ancient form of performance and Riaan gives guests the opportunity to become living puppets to complete the table set. The Sutradhara, show-manager of theatrical performances (aka the waiter) pulls the strings to the delight of the drinking and dining puppets.The work will only be on show for 10 days and can accommodate a maximum of 10 people at a time. To be a part of this unique dining experience that puts the guest inside the creative action, be sure to book well in advance: 021 424 2330; [email protected] (specifically ask for a table at Manners & Marionettes); 227 Long Street , Cape Town.Riaan's passion for theater, movement, drawing and the urge to create something different is clearly evident in this new exhibit called ‘Marionettes & Manners' – an experience not to be missed.
