(femme) NOIR

femme fa·tale
fem fəˈtal,ˌfem fəˈtäl/
an attractive and seductive woman, especially one who will ultimately bring disaster to a man who becomes involved with her.

But what does she do when she is alone? When there is no one to impress, no one to manipulate, no one to love. When she is confronted with her own devious, sensual and vulnerable psyche. She takes a bath.

Miri-Joan de Wet
Miri-Joan de Wet is a young, eager performance artist currently based in Cape Town. She works mostly in the multidisciplinary realm of performance art with a special interest in live art performance and site specific performance.
Miri-Joan studied at Rhodes University in Makhanda where she majored in Drama and Journalism and Media Studies. She completed her academic journey at Rhodes University with an Honours in Drama with a special interest in Choreography, Physical Performance and Acting.
The politics of the personal and the body inspire and intrigue Miri-Joan as she often explores the skin, nakedness and that which spills over/out of. She is interested in how this body is perceived and experienced in various spaces, be it in the traditional theatre or in a bath. She is fascinated by the potential of everyday spaces and how they can be penetrated, altered or enhanced by performance.

Teega Michl

Filmmaking is his everything, his drive, his bread and breakfast so-to-speak. Teega is an extremely hard worker who carries his professionalism wherever he goes.

Since then, he’s been working in the film industry on a freelance basis and even acted as the director of photography and colourist for a handful of commercials and music videos.
