Genre: Reality

Switch is a brand new South African talent based show that explores the differing world of artists. Two artists from different backgrounds are paired together and given two weeks to absorb each other’s genres, discover the differences and uncover the similarities with what they already know. They then have to create new artwork or performance. Artists featured range from chefs, designers, writers, actors, dancers, musicians to poets. The typical show format is a collaboration between a young, upcoming artist and a veteran artist to share wisdom and ideas to ensure that the artists learn from each other. Diary-style interviews with the artists let them talk candidly about the process, what they are learning and about each other. The show will be presented in various languages such as isiXhosa, isiZulu and English to represent the diversity of our country.
