The Mayoral Performing Arts competition, Cape Town Expozed, is back for a second year and is looking for the Mother City’s next star.

Entries for Cape Town Expozed opened this week and close on 30 March 2020.

‘Cape Town is an opportunity city and it is filled with young creative Capetonians. We are looking to provide an opportunity for young up-and-coming talent who have been waiting for a platform to showcase their abilities on a big stage,’ said Executive Mayor Alderman Dan Plato.

The competition is open to singers, dancers, musicians, poets and aspiring magicians among others.

‘This is more than just a talent competition but we want to train, develop young people and provide them with the tools required to build a long-lasting career in whichever discipline they choose. I want to encourage the youth to take up this opportunity as this could be the stepping stone to launching a wonderful career.’

From the entries, Cape Town Expozed will host auditions 6 – 9 April 2020 where the top eight will be chosen. They will perform at the Freedom Day Concert to be held on 25 April where a winner will be chosen.

The winner will walk away with a R10 000 cash prize.

Participants will be exposed to music industry business training, mentorships and workshops conducted by some of the leading performance art professionals.

Judges for the competition include musicians Robin Peters, award-winning choreographer Elvis Sibeko, and Cape Music Institute director Camillo Lombard.
