TWO OF the Northern Cape’s brightest talents, Danneline Ramsden and Vito Heyn, are heading to Kimberley with their stage production which celebrates the people of Namaqualand.

Ramsden and Heyn join forces in “Xhoulag”, a unique storytelling and music production celebrating the people of Namaqualand and that promises to have audiences “in stitches”.

Both are Northern Cape residents, Ramsden is from Komaggas and Heyn is from Okiep, and they are described as “true Namaqualand children”.

Together they have captured the imagination of people from all over the country but this will be their first performance in Kimberley.

Xhoulag is the term people from Namaqualand use to describe an exuberant laugh. In the tradition of the late Tolla van der Merwe, Ramsden tells the humorous stories of her hometown, neatly alternated by Heyn’s sought-after Nam-Afrikaans rap songs.

Xhoulag will be presented at the Northern Cape Theatre in Kimberley on July 5 at 7.30pm. Tickets are R120 per person and available through Webtickets or at Pick ’* Pay.’
