Vaselinetjie

Ek is perfek, want God maak nie Foute nie. Deur Louw Mulder Vroeg in die openingstoneel, ontmoet die kyker die ‘n asemrowende mooi sonsopkoms oor die Namakwalandse berge, maar so raak hierdie natuurskoon vinnig bitter-soet as dit die agtergrond skep vir ‘n ma wat lewe gee aan haar baba, en diè net daar los. Die kyker kom aandagtig tot die idee van die tema geroep, ...

King Kong

King Kong

A reawakening of South Africa’s rich history by David Simmons Let’s reflect for a few moments and take a brisk walk down memory lane. It’s 1959 Johannesburg. Sophiatown is a melting pot of culture, vibrancy and not forgetting the impenetrable sounds of Jazz. People come and go, the streets are bustling in true 1950’s style and the gossip at the local bus station imbues a ...

Big City, Big Dreams

Ballet meets its Modern Match By Jaco Lotriet A lot has been said recently about collaborations and the effect it can have on the power of the final product. This theory has yet again been proven on the Mandela Stage of the Joburg Theatre when Joburg Ballet collaborated with Vuyani Dance Theatre and Moving Into Dance Mphatong to create the energetic, vibrant and commanding dance ...

The Mysteries of Irma Vep

Eight Characters, Two Actors… and Irma Vep… By Louw Mulder You see the posters, two of South African Theatre giants in drag. You get convinced to go see this show, just because of VR Theatrical’s reputation. Half way through the first act, you think, “What am I watching”. At the end, when the actors take their final bow, you are saying: “I have to come ...

Lizandra Winter

Omvou in ‘n Winter Wonderland van Loutere Luistergenot deur Jaco Lotriet Sommige aspekte van die Afrikaande musiekbefryf het die laaste paar dekades ‘n afwaartse neiging vanuit ‘n produksie, en musikale oogpunt beleef, wat gekenmerk word deur oorweldigende vier-maat ritmes, lirieke wat skrams en herhalend in die snitte beperk word, asook die menige danstemas wat nietemin enorme aanklank by die luister publiek gevind het. Ter verduideliking, ...

The Echo of a Noice

Mr Uys, F@k is spelt with an F not a V! by Jaco du Plessis If there is something we South African’s know how to do, it is to laugh at ourselves. We always see the funny side of this rainbow nation of ours, and one man has been a leading force behind some of the best, yet sometimes controversial laughs. Pieter-Dirk Uys stands like ...

Van Der Merwe

Van Der Merwe

The legend comes to life! by Nicole van Blerk Van der Merwe – The Iconic South African character that holds a special place in all our hearts and minds.  The character that has evolved through countless jokes, anecdotes and campfire stories of his legendary buffoonery. A character we love and know, yet have never seen or heard. A character that never actually existed… but what if ...

Peter Pan

Peter gives Wendy a house at Canal Walk By Jaco du Plessis Ask every young boy what superpower he desires and the answer you will most likely get, is to fly! We all know of a young boy who can do just that, Peter Pan. This classic, originally created by author J.M. Barrie in 1904, gets a revival from Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer, just ...

Len Muller: Oog van die Storm

Die Oog van die Storm sien Muller se Tweede Album. Deur Jaco Lotriet Miskien lê die vreugde van die lewe daarin om al die verskillende seisoene van die lewe te aanvaar. Om die geleenthede wat elke seisoen bied, te vier. Dit is juis hierdie tema wat deurgans op Len Muller se nuwe album na vore gebring word. Met hierdie blymoedige mantra het die onverskrokke oud-inwoner ...
