Synopsis:
PRESENTATION by Dawn Lindberg EVERY DAY IS AN OPENING NIGHT: Dawn Lindberg is a household name in SA and she and her husband Des have been in the Entertainment Industry for 44 years. “Every Day is an Opening Night” is a motivational talk in which Dawn takes her audience on a trip down memory lane. She tells the story of her child hood growing up in Durban, the family move to Jozi, her meeting with Des at the University of the Witwatersrand, the folk singing days of the 60’s at the Troubadour and their marathon caravan tours around SA and Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) in a caravan with 2 cats and 2 guitars. She relates the high drama when their multi Racial production of “Godspell” was banned in the 70’s and their successful Supreme Court case, and of other productions both successes and failures. Dawn tells of the birth of their two sons, Joshua and Adam, (who underwent open heart surgery at the age of 5), of their Sunday Soirees at their home on Houghton Ridge, of the Naledi Theatre Awards and Des and Dawn’s current planned move to the Cape. She juxtaposes this personal journey with what was happening Politically and Socially in SA and how Theatre holds a mirror to Life..... She ends with her Madiba Magic Rainbow and how we can all strive for Holistic Wellness as every day is indeed our personal Opening night. Her talk is witty, informative, highly personal and inspirational.
