    Lewis Nkosi’s Mating Birds - Adapted & Directed by Mpho J Molepo 1660 Views 

    Mating Birds
    Date: 24 July – 17 August 2014
    Venue: Momentum Theatre
    Synopsis: Starring Mr Sputla Sebogodi & Martin Le Maitre. Anyway, very soon now all this will be over. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, the priest will intone. I am grateful for one thing, prison after all is not so bad when you are to hang. Much better this isolation, this quarantine which is like the waiting at a small railway station, before the start of a long journey then plucked from the bossom of family and friends and then dispatched to the scaffold. The outside world is a shadow without reality, a patch of blue sky seen through the bars of a prison window, a slash of sunshine caught suddenly in the unnatural silence of a working day, or a swath of moon beam penetrating into a darkened cell through the high window grille at night. The world is a rumor of trains arriving and departing, of ships honking in the black harbour of voices, laughter and a sudden blast. Written and directed by Mpho J Molepo. MATING BIRDS is presented by arrangement with DALRO (Pty) Limited,

    Marikana - The Musical 2415 Views 

    Marikana - The Musical
    Date: 29 September - 19 October 2014
    Venue: Drama Theatre
    Synopsis: Marikana-The Musical is an adaptation by Aubrey Sekhabi of a novel entitled “WE ARE GOING TO KILL EACH OTHER TODAY” The Marikana Story - by Felix Dlangamandla, Thanduxolo Jika, Lucas Ledwaba, Sebabatso Mosamo, Athandwa Saba and Leon Sadiki. Meshack Mavuso and Mpho “Mckenzie” Matome lead a strong cast of 20 that unleashes a blow by blow account of the events that led to the loss of 44 lives at the hands of the police and the miners. Marikana - The Musical will also go back to the villages and townships where they came from and give faces and names to the fallen brothers, sons, fathers and uncles. Twenty years into our democracy, can we say that we are a tolerant society if we can lose so many lives at our own hands? The killing did not start on the day of the shooting and after it started it spread like wildfire and “Tomorrow morning, the men will sing again. Their spears, pangas, inculas and sticks will clatter menacingly. They will recite battle cries from their homelands, and move about in organized columns, raising clouds of dust. But 34 of them will sing for the very last time”. Director: Aubrey Sekhabi, Set & Lighting Designer: Wilhelm Disbergen, Costume Designer: Irene Mathe, Cast: Meshackmavuso, Mpho”Mckenzie”Matome, Emma Mmekwa And Chorus, Choreographer: Thabo Rapoo, Stage Manager: Sechaba Fanampe, Ass Stage Manager: Simon Makam, Age Restriction: 13 LV
