Persverklaring: Odendaal se Droomwerk kom tuis in Kaapstad

LitNet Teater 2024-04-11

"Petrus droom oor sy voorouers in ’n hospitaal vir geestesiekes. Sy stammoeder, Diana van Madagaskar, loop op die seebodem terug huis toe. Sy oupa Piet, ’n apartheidsenator, herleef sy toesprake op sy doodsbed. Kan Petrus versoening in sy familie bring, of is hy te siek om te onderskei tussen werklikheid en droom?" | Droomwerk speel 26-30 April by Suidoosterfees en 8-11 Mei by die Avalon Ouditorium (Homecoming Centre) in Kaapstad.

Ignus Rademeyer KKNK 2024-04-09

"Bouwer se regie is meesterlik in sy vermoë om die grense tussen werklikheid en hallusinasie te vertroebel. Oomblikke van helderheid maak plek vir koorsagtige waansin, wat die gehoor laat wonder wat werklik is."

KKNK 2024: Goed wat wag om te gebeur

Izak de Vries KKNK 2024-04-08

"Van belang is dat ons DNS kompleks is – daar is ongeveer drie miljard stukkies kode, of 1,5 gigagrepe inligting, in elke stukkie DNS in ons liggame. Kyk na die sterre en weet maar net, ons liggame bevat dalk meer stukkies inligting as wat daar sterre is."

KKNK 2024: Monsters

Izak de Vries KKNK 2024-04-08

Izak de Vries KKNK 2024-04-08

"Hier staan Thamm op ’n openbare verhoog en sy klim met mening onder die regering en die lakeie van korrupsie in. Sy mag. Sy word toegelaat."

KKNK 2024: Patmos, ’n teaterresensie

Izak de Vries KKNK 2024-04-05

"Is die bestuur van verhoudings nie ook soms soos die dophou van ’n gebeurtenishorison nie? Sê nou maar. Dalk gebeur iets aan die ander kant van ’n swartgat; dalk is die liefde iets wat weer kan ontstaan na die bloeddorstige einde van ’n vorige verhouding."

KKNK 2024-teaterresensie: Die stoele ontleed die absurditeit van belangrikheid eerlik

Ignus Rademeyer KKNK 2024-04-04

"Die stoele is ’n prominente prestasie en ’n stuk werk wat steeds resoneer met gehore vir sy insiggewende kommentaar op liefde, isolasie, kommunikasie, verlange en verspeelde kanse."

World Theatre Day 2024: Klara van Rooyen responds

Naomi Meyer, Klara van Rooyen Lifestyle and entertainment 2024-04-02

"It is often said that South Africa does not have a theatre-going culture, so the day is a good tool to remind the public that theatre exists. I say this partly in jest, because performance and storytelling are part of our country’s cultural core and we are natural audience members (if we break away from stereotypical ideas of 'theatre')."

World Theatre Day 2024: Paul Kammies responds

Naomi Meyer, Paul Kammies Lifestyle and entertainment 2024-04-02

"Live theatre is a moment to become silent and reflect on life; it’s a moment to peek into something you might not know; it’s a moment to relieve yourself from something that’s causing adversity, or even to confront it creatively."

World Theatre Day 2024: Jeani Heyns responds

Naomi Meyer, Jeani Heyns Lifestyle and entertainment 2024-04-02

"It’s difficult to talk about the status of South African theatre without sounding very cynical,  but it is my opinion that many works that are actually really important and should be seen are often poorly attended and funded and therefore cannot gain traction or travel so that more audiences can see them."

World Theatre Day 2024: Jane Mpholo responds

Naomi Meyer, Jane Mpholo Lifestyle and entertainment 2024-04-02

"Even though it falls under the entertainment industry, theatre provokes discussions, teaches, and can be therapeutic. It takes a big team to get an idea into fruition. It takes a special team to leave an everlasting mark on someone’s life, be it visually or solely the performance aspect. Theatre moves."

World Theatre Day 2024: Ignus Rademeyer responds

Naomi Meyer, Ignus Rademeyer Teater 2024-03-28

"World Theatre Day, especially in South Africa, represents a day on which one can reflect on years of authentic storytelling and breaking barriers in a country blessed with diversity and cultural richness."

White rabbit, red rabbit: Onbekende teks ontgin en betrek op ongewone manier

Maryke Roberts, Albert Pretorius Onderhoude 2024-03-25

"Stel jou dit voor: ’n Akteur arriveer by ’n fotografie-ateljee wat in ’n opskietteater omskep is. Hier wag 78 mense op houtbankies vir hom. Hy gaan ’n toneelstuk opvoer waarvan hy nie die teks ken nie, oor ’n onderwerp wat hy nog moet ontdek, en daar mag dalk gehoordeelname wees."
