“The Water Diva’s, Gauteng’s world famous synchro-swimming sensation, have been coaxed out of retirement! The Water Divas perform with gazelle-like grace, combined with exacting precision, to deliver a performance of extreme beauty.” Having not performed in over ten years, Gauteng’s Water Ballet Divas put on quite a show in celebration of the Arts on Sandton Square in early 2008. The performance was a resounding success.”


The late Lesley Perkes, the main initiator for these public art sessions and my dearest friend believed passionately in the power of public art and mischief - disrupting our normal mundane routines and injecting a sense of joy and play into the everyday. She fought fiercely for artists. We miss you and we love you Lesley!
