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.

  • Dani And The Lion – why I breathe
    Sometimes a show comes along that makes me feel everything. Sometimes a show comes along that I see more than once and want to see again. This time it is Dani And the Lion, on at The Alexander Bar until the end of the week. I don’t know why this is the show that touches […]
  • 37 Million Light Years
    The distance between desire and swallow The space between frightened heartbeats The wait for the unwanted answer The way to describe an inconceivable I sat on the plane, waiting for the usual ritual of things before we would take off and head home. The flight had been delayed, so the whole trip would happen in […]
  • That Nagging Feeling…
    I hang up. “What? What has she done now?” I have been talking to my sister, and Charlie, my husband, recognises the sister tone in my voice. We are walking the dogs in the park when she calls. “Oh the usual. She needs me to just, blah, blah, blah…” I trail off and watch Herman […]
  • Harper Lee and the modern world
    It is a strange and nasty world we live in. There has been world wide hysteria and anticipation for the sequel to To Kill A Mockingbird, hailed, for some (including me) as one of the greatest books ever written. I read it pretty much once a year. I think I have read it at least […]
