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.

  • Hopefully the last Standard Bank update
    It isn’t even 12pm and I am utterly exhausted. The truth is that this bullshit with Standard Bank has been way too consuming for the past week. I haven’t been able to do much else, and it is nowhere near a satisfying resolution. I think that this how big corporations deal with complaints and restless […]
  • The next instalment of Standard Bank crazy
    I have woken up into the 7th day of my conflict with Standard Bank in a far worse place than I was yesterday. I cannot believe this is happening to me. A new drama unfolded yesterday (one that was partly my fault, which, ironically, is easier to swallow) that has left me with no access […]
  • The Age of Outcry
    Chapter 9 Thank you readers, for coming this far. Let me remind you. You are now on day 17 of my home rebirth deep mindfulness and being present meditation preparation experiential process. 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 […]
