Consumers are now seeking beneficial, functional foods that provide solutions to their nutritional challenges, and the health and wellness food beverage industry is going through a period of substantial growth. The Netherlands currently shows significant development and opportunity, with an 18% increase in its health and wellness sales between 2008 and 2013. Furthermore, sales in the Benelux region reached €10 billion in 2013 and are expected to rise by €1 billion by 2018. Sales in products with specific health benefits and those renowned for their health properties are driving the upward trend in health and wellness. With an expected real term growth of 7% by 2017, the global health and wellness industry is on its way to hitting a record high of $1 trillion dollars.

To capture these market trends, Hi Europe will provide a global meeting place and environment for buyers and sellers within the worldwide health wellness ingredients industry, to conduct business. The show will highlight ingredients and solutions for food and drink formulation/reformulation, dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, organics and packaging processing.

The National Arts Festival and the City of Cape Town have announced a partnership to launch a new performing arts festival, the Cape Town Fringe.

“The National Arts Festival team delivers one of the world’s best-known and biggest events each year in Grahamstown,” said Cape Town’s Executive Deputy Mayor, Ian Neilson. “Through this partnership they will weave the same magic in Cape Town.”

The Cape Town Fringe will take place from 25 September until 5 October 2014.

“The implication for Grahamstown is positive,” Festival Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Tony Lankester.

“The Cape Town Festival will not compete with Grahamstown,” he said. “It is in September, a completely different time of year and there are many other Festivals in September which don’t compete with the National Arts Festival. They have actually increased the size of the festival market. People do not only go to only one festival per year.”

“It takes the National Arts Festival brand to a whole new market, people who haven’t necessarily made the trip to Grahamstown yet.”

He said that Grahamstown can be proud that the Festival it created 40 years ago is spreading to new areas.

“As a company, the National Arts Festival can’t survive just producing one festival per year, which is why we have taken on a range of projects such as the Creative City project.”

He said these projects will increase the Festival’s already positive contribution to Grahamstown.

Cape Town was chosen as host city after the National Arts Festival conducted an extensive analysis of where to stage a new Festival.

Cape Town met the criteria set by the organisers: it already puts creativity at the forefront; has a strong and loyal theatregoing audience; has the right energy for a free-spirited event; and the scale to grow the Fringe over time, “without losing the sense of intimacy that is so important” he said.

The Cape Town Festival will be modelled on Fringe Festivals in New York, Amsterdam, Adelaide, Edinburgh and Grahamstown and will feature “young, dynamic and cutting-edge” work from some of the country’s leading theatre-makers, said Festival Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Tony Lankester.

The National Arts Festival is a member of the prestigious World Fringe Alliance, a grouping of nine Fringe Festivals in Grahamstown, Hollywood, New York, Edinburgh, Brighton, Prague, Amsterdam, Perth and Adelaide, which reach an audience of over 3-million people. Lankester was the founding Chair of the Alliance.

“The Fringe model rests on two pillars; first, bold, innovative, exciting work which pushes boundaries for both artists and audiences; second, a business model … which encourages independence and sustainability, while costs are shared between performers,” he said.

The City is committed to the project for three years, provided the event meets attendance and participation targets.

“We want this event to not only enrich the lives of residents, but also to create jobs, contribute to the economy and drive tourism,” Neilson said.

The Cape Town Fringe aims to present around 40 productions in venues in and around the city centre, as well as in satellite venues in areas such as Langa.

“Access is critical to the success of a Fringe and was a big factor in our decision to proceed with this project,” Neilson said.

The National Arts Festival’s Artistic Director, Ismail Mahomed, said that organisers were looking for work that is “brash, bold, cheeky, outspoken, confident, socially aware and independent”.

He said the Fringe model means that productions will pay a modest registration and venue hire fee, and then take “the lion’s share of the box office.

“The Fringe itself then manages the bulk of the marketing, ticket sales, venue set-up and all the staffing, financial, technical and legal requirements for the event.”

While the Fringe will use as many as 16 venues, Cape Town’s City Hall will form the event’s base, and will boast several performance venues and a Fringe Hub where artists, audiences and the media will gather at the end of each day.

The call for proposals is currently open and more information can be found at www.capetownfringe.co.za

OF ALL modern dramatists, Arthur Miller can be the hardest to bring up to date. His plays are vivid portraits of the era in which they were written. As a result, few productions manage to go beyond presenting them as period pieces. “A View from the Bridge”, which opened at the Young Vic theatre in London on April 11th, is a rare exception. Directed by Ivo van Hove, a Belgian who is fast becoming known further afield, it is a striking new take on Miller’s work.

“A View from the Bridge” tells the story of Eddie Carbone, an Italian-American longshoreman living in Red Hook, Brooklyn. After he takes in Marco and Rodolpho, two men who have illegally arrived from Sicily, events begin to unravel: his young niece Catherine becomes infatuated with Rodolpho, disturbing the jealous and protective Eddie. As a play it can seem dated: Eddie’s belief that Rodolpho is homosexual seems forced (“I’m tellin’ you I know—he ain’t right”), while the structure of Miller’s play—loosely based on Greek tragedy, with one character, a lawyer, narrating events to the audience—can appear mannered.

A man in full

  • Rogue mate
  • After dark
  • Misjudgments
  • Chronicle of a death foretold
  • Man of the moment
  • Correction: Hummingbird
  • Mr van Hove is known for his innovative approach to classic plays. Since 2001 he has been the director of Toneelgroep Amsterdam, Holland’s largest repertory theatre. With his long-term collaborator and partner Jan Versweyveld he creates stylised productions, often using video screens and experimental staging. Audiences in his productions often find themselves sitting onstage or being moved around an auditorium.

    In comparison with some of Mr van Hove’s earlier productions, “A View from the Bridge” is relatively simple. The play opens with Eddie (Mark Strong) showering under a sliver of water and wringing out his shirt. Mr Versweyveld’s stage design is stark: a sunken monochrome set with few props, relying on subtle shifts of lighting to indicate scene changes. All the characters, with the exception of Catherine (Phoebe Fox), wear muted colours. Padding around the stage in bare feet, the actors seem vulnerable. A requiem mass quietly plays throughout, building up to a crescendo at the end of the play.

    Miller’s play is perhaps an odd choice for a European director better known for his more avant-garde work. But Mr van Hove was attracted to the ambiguity of the play: how Eddie can seem sympathetic one minute and then monstrous the next. The play also echoes some of the anti-immigration rhetoric being bandied about in Europe. “It raises the issue of whether you should ask of people who come to your country that they should integrate and adapt—and if that is possible anyway,” says Mr van Hove. His stylish staging strips away the affectations in Miller’s play. In doing so, an American classic suddenly appears dazzlingly modern.

    Around 3.4 million Brits are planning on a staycation over the Easter weekend, staying in a UK hotel for at least one night.

    Some 6.5 million people are also planning day trips over the long weekend, according to a poll by VisitEngland, which shows that these holidaymakers are likely to provide an £800m boost for the UK economy.

    The national tourist board also reveals 6.5 million Brits have already made plans for day trips with another 13 million saying they might get out and about over the Bank Holiday weekend.

    Staycation: Millions of Brits are expected to stay overnight in England in places such as Brighton

    VisitEngland chief executive James Berresford said the figures reflect reports of positive forward bookings for Easter from many destinations across the country.

    He added: ‘Easter is a fantastic time of year to spend a short break or day out with the family exploring the wonderful destinations in England.

    ‘The industry has rallied following the severe weather earlier this year.

    ‘It’s business as usual for tourism with a full line-up of events and offers across the country, and destinations ready and waiting to welcome visitors this Easter break.’

    Stay-at-home: Seaside resorts - such as Llandudno, north Wales - are expected to be heaving this weekend

    The findings come as it’s revealed those
    travelling in the UK will have to contend with packed roads and
    disruption on the railways due to an extensive programme of engineering
    works.

    Traffic information company
    Trafficmaster and the AA have forecast as many as 16 million cars will
    be on the move over the holiday, with drivers from Northern Ireland the
    most likely to get behind the wheel and Scots the least likely to do so.

    Another
    traffic information company, Inrix, has forecast that the
    worst-affected congestion hotspots in south east and south west England
    will be twice as busy over Easter as during non-holiday periods.

    And engineering work on the railways
    will affect services to and from a number of major termini, including
    London’s Charing Cross, London Bridge, Paddington and King’s Cross
    stations.

    Congestion: Some 16 million cars are expected to be on the move over the Easter holiday

    Southampton Central and Sheffield are among other major stations where services will be affected over the weekend.

    That’s all too much for an estimated 1.6 million Brits – who are heading abroad for the holiday.

    Popular foreign spots for those going overseas include Spain and its islands, Turkey, Tunisia and Florida, according to UK travel organisation Abta.

    Top city destinations are Paris, Dublin, Amsterdam, Rome and New York.

    Over the Easter weekend, 370,000 passengers will leave from Heathrow airport, 200,000 from Gatwick, 120,000 from Stansted, 60,000 from Luton and 4,500 from Bournemouth.

    Jeanette Sophia (deWit) Mavity passed away at St. Vincent Hospital in Billings on April 13, 2014, due to complications of pneumonia. Born Feb. 22, 1939, in Den Helder, the Netherlands, Netty (Dutch version of her name) was the daughter of Ben and Betty (Rink) deWit. She had an older brother, Ben Jr.

    Netty had a tumultuous childhood. The bombing of Den Helder during WWII sent the family to Amsterdam, where they lived until 1949. She went to grade school in Amsterdam until their father’s work brought the family to Jakarta, Indonesia. There, she finished grade school and attended a private high school, C.A.S., until ’55 and, after moving back to Holland, she finished her high schooling in Hilversum. In February ’57, Netty (now Jeanette), and her folks immigrated to the U.S. under the auspices of the United World Church Organization, locally sponsored by Stuart and Jackie North.

    On March 1, Jeanette went to work at what is now KULR—TV. She retired from there as comptroller and, altogether, spent 28 years in the broadcasting business. On Oct. 17, 1959, Jeanette married Bill Mavity. They had two children: Alex and Yvette.

    Jeanette was a member of the 1983 Greater Billings Management Task Force and a member of the City-County Consolidation Task Force. In 1989, she worked for Latigo during the Montana Centennial Cattle Drive.

    In 1990, Jeanette started a new career in the travel industry as a travel agent and later as a cruise sales specialist. She and Bill enjoyed many trips abroad, as well as several cruises.

    On Feb. 14, 1989, one of two life-changing events occurred for Jeanette when their only son, Alex, was shot and killed in the line of duty. This was a devastating blow to the family, as well as to his widow (and Jeanette’s daughter-in-law), Joyce, and 6-month-old daughter, Alexis. The second one was in April of 2000, when Jeanette suffered a massive stroke, from which she never fully recovered. This left a once-vibrant, independent woman to live out the rest of her life, relying on her husband to be her caregiver, driving her to therapy three times a week, never able to drive again or to live without the need of help in her everyday life.

    Surviving Jeanette are her husband, Bill; daughter Yvette (Dick) McClintock; brother Ben and sister-in-law Hilde; niece Cherise, of Rochester, Minn.; granddaughter Alexis (Pat) Kenney; and her beloved Pete, the family Boston terrier.

    Preceding her in death are her parents, nephew Michael deWit and son Alex.

    The family would like to thank the third-floor staff at St. V’s, especially Carmen, RN, and Kathy H., CNA, who was so compassionate and wonderful with Jeanette during her final days, and thanks to Dr. Jeff Johnson and Rolo for the great care they provided Jeanette for some years.

    Michelotti-Sawyers Mortuary is in charge of arrangements. Visitation/viewing will be from 1 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 16, at Michelotti-Sawyers, 1001 Alderson Ave. The service will be at 1 p.m. Thursday, April 17, at Michelotti-Sawyers, with interment following in Mountview Cemetery.

    Memorials may be made to the Al Bedoo Shrine Transportation Fund or the charity of choice.

    Remembrances may be shared with the family by visiting www.michelottisawyers.com.

    New Fringe Festival for Cape Town

    National Arts Festival
    04/16/2014 05:04:39


    The National Arts Festival and the City of Cape Town have announced a partnership which will see the launch of a new performing arts festival.

    The National Arts Festival and the City of Cape Town today announced a partnership which will see the launch of a new performing arts festival in September, modelled on some of the world’s iconic events.

    The new Cape Town Fringe is inspired by the energy and ethos of popular Fringe Festivals in New York, Amsterdam, Adelaide and Edinburgh, and will feature “young, dynamic and cutting edge” work from some of the country’s leading theatremakers, according to Festival CEO Tony Lankester.

    “The Fringe model rests on two pillars – firstly the nature of the work on a Fringe is such that it is bold, innovative, exciting and it pushes boundaries for both artists and audiences; secondly a Fringe festival has a business model behind it which encourages independence and sustainability, while costs are shared between performers,” he said.

    The Cape Town Fringe aims to present around 40 productions in venues in and around the city centre, as well as in satellite venues in areas such as Langa. “Access is critical to the success of a Fringe and was a big factor in our decision to proceed with this project,” Executive Deputy Mayor, Ian Neilson, acting Mayoral Committee Member for Tourism, Events and Marketing said. “Ticket pricing, choice of venues as well as the scheduling of performances all contribute to making a Fringe Festival appeal to as many people as possible, both traditional and non-traditional theatergoing audiences,” Neilson continued.

    A public call for proposals was made at the launch of the event, with the Festival’s Artistic Director, Ismail Mahomed, saying that organisers were looking for work that is “brash, bold, cheeky, outspoken, confident, socially aware and independent”.

    “The Fringe model means that productions will pay a modest registration and venue hire fee, and then take the lion’s share of the box office,” Mahomed explained. “The Fringe itself then manages the bulk of the marketing, ticket sales, venue setup and all the staffing, financial, technical and legal requirements for the event.”

    While the Fringe will use as many as 16 venues, Cape Town’s City Hall will form the ‘home base’ for the event, and will boast several performance venues and a Fringe Hub where artists, audiences and the media will gather at the end of each day.

    “That kind of hub is critical – it breaks down walls between performers and their audiences, and it creates a sense of Fringe community around the event,” Lankester said.

    The choice of Cape Town as a host city came about after the National Arts Festival conducted an extensive analysis of where to stage a new Festival. “We wanted to extend our reach beyond Grahamstown and stage a new Fringe in a City which already puts creativity at the forefront; which has a strong and loyal theatergoing audience; which has the right energy for a free-spirited event such as this; and which has the scale to grow the Fringe over time, without losing the sense of intimacy that is so important,” Lankester said. “On each of those scores Cape Town came out tops – it’s the best possible home for the country’s newest Festival.”

    The National Arts Festival is a member of the prestigious World Fringe Alliance – a grouping of nine Fringe Festivals which, collectively, reach an audience of over 3-million people. Alliance membership comprise the Fringe Festivals in Grahamstown, Hollywood, New York, Edinburgh, Brighton, Prague, Amsterdam, Perth and Adelaide.

    “We’re building the Cape Town Fringe on this bedrock of global best practice,” Lankester, who was the founding Chair of the Alliance, said. “Through our network we will be able to bring some great international productions to Cape Town, and continue creating opportunities for our artists to travel the world.”

    The City have committed to partner on the project for a three-year period, provided the event meets certain attendance and participation targets. “We want this event to not only enrich the lives of residents, but also to create jobs, contribute to the economy and drive tourism,” Neilson said.

    “The National Arts Festival team delivers one of the world’s best-known and biggest events each year in Grahamstown. Through this partnership they will weave the same magic in Cape Town and put the City on the world Fringe map.”

    The Cape Town Fringe will run from 25 September until 5 October 2014. The call for proposals is currently open and more information can be found at www.capetownfringe.co.za
