Kruispad: akteurs deel hul ervarings
2010-06-10
Toe Wim Vorster my nader om in Kruispad te speel, het ek nie lank daaroor nagedink nie. Met die eerste oogopslag was die teks en die karakters baie speelbaar. Binne elke nuwe, oorspronklike teks lê daar soveel meer uitdagings in wat te bowe gekom moet word. Met Wim aan die stuur voel ons – weens sy insig in die teks en dit wat hy daardeur wil bereik – deurentyd in veilige hande. Die werksproses is opwindend en vernuwend. Die geleentheid om deel te wees van hierdie produksie beskou...

Galgut heads back to the theatre, and has a new book out
Andie Miller - 2010-05-12
“After having poured forth … tirelessly torrents of red and white light it begins to lose its effulgence … pppfff! finished! It comes to rest. But – but behind this veil of gentleness and peace night is charging and will burst upon us … pop! like that! just when we least expect it. That’s how it is on this bitch of an earth.” This could have been the response from many in the South African literary community to Eyjafjallajokull, the volcano that wrecked...

Die storie is nie liniêr nie en die play is gedekonstrueer. Dit spring van...

Dansynergy
Anton Krueger - 2007-07-11
One of the challenges of working in contemporary dance is finding new forms for the body while still managing to communicate with an audience. The first of three pieces by the Tshwane Dance Theatre, Sweet Honey Nights, manages this conversation flawlessly. Three dancers (embodying different aspects of the same woman) enact the harmonies and conflicts of a sexual relationship. A number of remixed Billy Holiday songs guide them in the expressions of a woman’s desire for a man. Animals –...
