This year’s programme features more women in an effort to amplify female voices in the theatrical, performing and visual arts. This year’s National Arts Festival – which runs from 2 to 12 July – not only features a number of strong and visible women in most genres, but also numerous productions and exhibitions that interrogate and question fixed thinking in relation to gender more broadly.

To mark the 20th anniversary of legendary South African theatre-maker Barney Simon’s passing, the Baxter Theatre Centre is restaging his riveting docudrama ‘Born in the RSA’ in Grahamstown this year.

Tobacco, and the Harmful Effects Thereof, with Andrew Buckland and Toni Morkel, directed by Sylvaine Strike, at the Baxter this May and June

Magnet Theatre presents 3 brand new works and an exhibition of a professional stage design project. This program has been developed with the 3 Expanded Public Works Program interns who have been with Magnet Theatre since August 2014.

In summary, I have, up to this point, introduced the skills and insights of being still, asking ourselves a genuine ‘how are you?’, […]
  • Standard Bank Hell continued
    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. I have just been online and had a look at my brand new Standard Bank account that I was forced to open so they could pay me back the R7213.77 they stole from me and they have invented the arbitrary number of R2000 and put it into […]
  • A Timeline of Standard Bank Hell
    1. Thursday afternoon I got an sms from Standard Bank saying R7220 odd had been withdrawn from my account and my balance was 0 (zero). I thought it was odd and I went online to have a look at what I was sure was a mistake sms. 2. Nope. It was true. Every last cent […]
