Press release:

The Gordon Institute of Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA) partners with the Africa Centre in Infecting the (Mother) City with public art projects, from 12 – 16 March 2013.

Award-winning author Henrietta Rose-Innes discusses her work, Green Lion, and reads a few short extracts. This novel, developed during her tenure as Donald Gordon Creative Arts Fellow, explores extinction and the meanings of animal/human encounters, with particular reference to the historical and contemporary Cape. Beginning at a zoo-like institution devoted to recreating an extinct Cape lion, the narrative traces the relationship between a lion-keeper and the rare and elusive animal in his care. There will be opportunity for discussion and questions from the audience after the readings.

Henrietta Rose-Innes’s Green Lion discussion and reading will take place at the District Six Museum’s Homecoming Centre on Tuesday 12 and Thursday 14 March at 18:15. It is presented by The Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA), as part of the 2013 programme for the Infecting the City Public Arts Festival.
