Cape Town Fringe gets physical

Submitted by

Artists taking part in the inaugural Cape Town Fringe festival are putting their bodies – and hearts – on the line in a wide-range of physical theatre and performance art productions, set to run from 25 September 5 October.

At a definitive time of South Africa’s 20 years old democracy, Thando Doni is focusing on exploring the views, struggles and triumphs of the country’s youth. The play explores aspirations and identity in the context of being young in an evolving democracy. As the title Ukhanyo (I am the light of the world) suggests; through finding their light this play gives voice to the youth of South Africa.

Lara Foot’s latest play, Fishers of Hope (Taweret), explores the meaning of hope in Africa at the National Arts Festival and Baxter this July


KBT Productions presents the Cape Town premiere of the acclaimed adaptation of Paul Gallico’s The Snow Goose.   It will be performed at Kalk Bay Theatre from 5 to 28 June at 8pm.

  • My new project is directing the fabulous Lynita Crofford in a risky, frisky one woman show that is part blog, part confession, part fantasy called Violet Online. And it is the best fun I have had in ages. Based on blog entries chronicling her post-divorce dating life, Violet lets us into her hilarious online Scrabble […]

  • I am filled with a special kind of joy and excitement because next Monday we are doing a different kind of improv from the usual Monday night’s TheatreSports. Awesome improvisers Carolyn Lewis, Leon Clingman, Ryan Jales and I will take to the stage at The Galloway Theatre at 8pm, and improvise. We have no idea […]

  • I have just had a blinding realisation. It happened while looking at a pic of a man and a signboard. He was advertising his show at the Edinburgh festival. My heart did a lurch when I identified with him and imagined how he felt. Here is a screenshot of the pic. Totally innocent and cute, unless […]

  • My wonderful little road show has brought me to Newcastle. Granted, we drove straight to our designation, a private hospital, where we are hosting another ward hostess Angel party, saying thank you to the usually invisible, but it is my first time in this neck of the woods. I have driven past signs that said […]
