Bella Poetica Musica is a performance art group that performs classical music framed by narrative, poetry and dance. They comprise of two celli and a viola.
The motto of Bella Poetica Musica is ” Creating spaces of Beauty”
Bella Poetica Musica was founded upon the idea that classical music can be utilized to transform spaces. The group decided to use poetry, narrative and dance to animate the displays within museums and thus transform the space between audience and spectator.
Poetry, narrative, dance and music are wondrous mechanisms in depicting the rich cultural history of Cape Town. It allows the journey of how the Cape was formed to be articulated through the interspersion of display and creating a dialogue in which the audience is able to engage with.
Femina Pastiche ,which is Bella Poetica Musica’s Women’s Month performance deals with different aspects of the female form in terms of voice, body and dialogue. It is a celebration of women and the intrinsic role that women have in the fabric of history.
Join them for an afternoon of magic realism depicted in narrative, poetry, dance and music and celebrate the month of women.
The performance of Femina Pastiche starts at 12 noon on the 12th of August 2018 at the Military Museum at the Castle of Good Hope.
