Robin Pieters is a local singer and songwriter who earned a finalist spot in the debut season of The Voice SA where he got exclusive training with mega-stars such as Lira. While the competition helped Pieters become a household name, he has also starred in David Kramer’s production of Orpheus in Africa at the former Fugard Theatre and studied music at the Cape Music Institute. He’s done backing vocals for a range of local musicians but has since taken centre stage as a solo act of his own. When it comes to the campaign theme - Pieters feels strongly in the message of bravery and claiming your space in the world.
TLT Core Entertainment is an events entertainment company consisting of young talented dancers and performers who offer live entertainment, event management, and event marketing services. As for what motivated their dance team to join forces for the Dance of Brave, the MD and CEO for the company, Tracy Lee Thomas gushes over how the theme of bravery ties closely to their dance members. “The artists that I work with – they come from hectic communities and when they dance, they ascend to a different kind of mentality, different kind of energy, and they are happy – their art brings them joy. And ‘Be Brave, Mzansi’ gives my artists a platform to encourage the rest of the country.” she explains.
This is what Robin and the TLT Core Entertainment team, define bravery as:
‘Brave’ means, for me, standing up for yourself and making sure that you feel comfortable with yourself, and you’re brave about doing it. That’s what brave means to me – standing up for yourself.
‘Brave’ is such a weighted word. How do you be ‘brave’? It’s basically going against everything that is challenging – everything that affects you or pressurises you mentally, physically, emotionally, stepping beyond that which scares you and still shining. That’s ‘brave’.
