About Us

Door 6 Entertainment is a South African corporate entertainment company owned by two partners, Karen Cutts and Alessandro (Alex) Batazzi, who bring their unique talents and expertise to the company. With an experience of over 30 years in the South African entertainment industry, they are able to offer a wide range of entertainment services to performing artists and clients alike.

Karen and Alessandro met at Sun City in 1997. Karen was the General Manager of Entertainment at Sun City and Alessandro was the Musical Director and Composer for Sun City Extravaganzas as well as the Front of House Sound Engineer for the Superbowl.

Together they produced and co-devised three of Sun City’s longest running Extravaganzas – Pulse, Odyssey and Let There Be Rock. Let There Be Rock went on to tour for four months after a two and a half year run at Sun City.

Cutts and Batazzi had many in depth discussions about the future of live entertainment in South Africa during their 13 years at Sun City and developed a strong understanding for the corporate entertainment environment and clients' expectations of entertainment and technical requirements for functions and events.

They also have a passion for new, original work, the staging of unique, high quality shows and the development of professional artists and newcomers.

Their vision and ambition is to use their artistic and technical expertise for both South African and international corporate shows, events and functions, contracting the most experienced and talented artists and using their extensive technical knowledge to ensure a 5 star service.

At the same time, Door 6 enables them to pass on their knowledge to young performers and technicians at the Door 6 Recording Studio and on the floor at events.
