Weekly Photo Challenge : Let there be light!

Built in 1976, a difficult time in the Apartheid years in South Africa, The Baxter theatre complex is a vibrant, multicultural entertainment hub in the southern suburbs of Cape Town. With a world class theatre and concert hall, studio stage, rehearsal rooms, restaurant, bars, and an impressive spacious foyer, it is still one of the premier venues for the Arts in Cape Town. The theatre, located below the campus of the University of Cape Town, was able to leverage its strong relationship with the University to present multiracial, progressive work at a time when all other non-racial interactivity was banned or censored. So, I guess in its own way, synonymous with “let there be the light” ….. which happens to be this weeks prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge , so together with that idea, and images of the powerful graphic created by the lighting to the Baxter foyer, I’ve added my response to this week’s prompt…………the journey continues……….
