    MZANSI FELA FESTIVAL 2014
    VENUE: VARIOUS VENUES
    DATE: 1 – 15 DECEMBER 2014
    The SA State Theatre’s annual Mzansi Fela Festival is back again from 1 - 15 December 2013. The Mzansi Fela Festival has become one of the most anticipated festivals of the year in the Tshwane Metropolitan. The festival presents some of the most exciting music, theatre, dance, comedy and poetry in South Africa. Launched in 2007 the festival has grown in leaps and bounds from being “Mzansi on Stage” to “Mzansi Fela Festival” presenting the arts and diversity of our country.
    Mainstream theatre performances consist of the old and new works, the festival will also feature dance, comedy, rock and poetry.
    And of course the programme would not be complete without the line-up of development theatre productions through the Fieldwork Program, an initiative to unearth the next generations of writers, directors and actors.

    CALL US CRAZY
    VENUE: MOMENTUM THEATRE
    DATE: 22 JANUARY – 1 FEBRUARY 2015
    Call us Crazy is essentially a hilarious comedy that sees South Africa laughing at itself. Fast-paced, multi conventional and full of pun and intended meaning, Call us Crazy tells the story of a disillusioned road construction worker, Auntie, whose mission is to tar all the roads in the world.
    Having worked for the same construction company over 27 years, Auntie breaks ranks with her colleagues, Half-Half and Amper-Amper, in a huff after concluding that they work for an ungrateful and chauvinistic employer. While Auntie's dream to tar the world sounds like an impossible and idiotic idea, a finer line of an ambitious character emerges as she succeeds in opening her own construction company, which she aptly calls Vuka! Africa Road and Paving Construction Company.
    Starring:
    Clerise Filen as Half-Half
    Maritjie Bothma as Amper-Amper

    MUSIC OF QUEEN: THE SHOW MUST GO ON – JOSEPH CLARK & BAND 314 Views 

    MUSIC OF QUEEN: THE SHOW MUST GO ON – JOSEPH CLARK & BAND
    VENUE: OPERA THEATRE
    DATE: 5 – 15 FEBRUARY 2015
    Those who have never seen this enigmatic artist in action will soon get the chance when he graces the stage at The South African State Theatre in January 2015 Even if you are not a Queen fan, this is the show to convert you. Clark will take you on a roller coaster ride with his powerful renditions of some of the greatest rock songs ever written, including classics like We Will Rock You, Another One Bites The Dust, We are the Champions, I Want to Break Free, Under Pressure, Who Wants To Live Forever, Bohemian Rhapsody and many more.
    But, Queen is not all about rock‘n roll. The group also wrote the greatest ballads, anthems, pop, blues and even jazz or disco? The line-up of songs, is like no other “Queen show” in the world. Joseph Clark and his band will “woo” you with songs like You Take My Breath Away, Is This The World We Created, Get Down - Make Love, Killer Queen, Too Much Love Will Kill You, Innuendo, Sleeping On The Sidewalk and more!
    Some of the songs they are covering, have never been performed live! These songs were recorded by Freddie before he passed away and no other artist has been or is currently performing this magnitude of jewels from Queen! Director, Elzette Maarschalk says this is not just another QUEEN/Freddie Mercury look-alike show, although one can’t get past the strong on-stage resemblance, physically and vocally between Clark and the iconic Mercury.
    The production has all the elements to make up one hugely enjoyable evening as Joseph is taking Queen’s music to another level by performing it in his own individual style. “For me Joseph Clark has long been one of the great interpreters of Queen's music and he certainly doesn't disappoint with this magical performance. His vocal versatility comes magnificently to the fore as he moves effortlessly from the quiet ballads, to blues, to rock.” - Peter Feldman Copyright Artslink.co.za © 1997-2004
