About

Independent academic researcher and theatre maker Dr Myer Taub, together with collaborators from the Wits City Institute and Michaelis School of Fine Art, leads an interactive treasure hunt through Orange Grove, Norwood, Orchards and Ethel and Gray Park.

Starting at the Radium Beer Hall (one of Joburg’s oldest pubs), Dr. Taub leads a treasure hunt along the various waterways that crisscross the area in search of 'the mystery of Braam’s fountain'. Dr Taub is joined on this JoziWalk by Professor Andrew Lamprecht, performing another edition of his Time Flies collaborative performance series which combines performance art with environmental activism. 

The Time Flies series follows bumbling “failed art historian” Professor Alain Said as he races around the globe in search of treasure. The tenth episode in the Time Flies series, on this #JoziWalk Professor Alain Said has emerged from the River Styx with some very important news – he has found the true source of the river Nile in Joburg!


In particular this JoziWalk investigates the neglect and absence of natural water within Joburg by following alternate and hidden pathways and routes, and highlights the importance of environmental activism in the city.
