The Swell

Drama/Comedy • Run­ning Time: 55 mins
Directed and designed by Gary Hart­ley | Writ­ten by Genna Gar­dini | Star­ring Zanne Solomon & Shaun Acker | Music by Umlilo
The Swell is the story of two unusual char­ac­ters who meet under even stranger cir­cum­stances. Marie Wal­ters iden­ti­fies as a mer­maid, and when she makes a med­ical aid claim for the loss of her tail it’s up to the company’s Strange Claims offi­cer, Howard Fawls, to track down the reclu­sive Marie and inves­ti­gate. Did her tail ever exist at all? This encounter raises and inter­ro­gates  ques­tions of how bod­ies, both tan­gi­ble and fan­tas­ti­cal, are treated in con­tem­po­rary South Africa.

The Swell is the first col­lab­o­ra­tion between the inde­pen­dent the­atre com­pa­nies Fruitza­lad Pro­duc­tions and Horses’ Heads Productions.

Smaar­ties

Drama • Run­ning Time: 60 mins
Directed & Designed by Quintin Wils | Writ­ten & Per­formed by Jannes Eras­mus | Videog­ra­phy by Jaco Jansen van Rensburg
Smaar­ties (which takes place in both Afrikaans and Eng­lish) is a pow­er­ful one-man show about Mr Lotz who finds him­self in a psy­chi­atric ward after the death of both of his par­ents. He still has a 12-year-old sis­ter he has to look after. The play looks at his daily life in the ward and how he is cop­ing and try­ing to word and explain what really hap­pened that night to him and his parents…
“…Smaar­ties kan kom­peteer met van die beste een­man stukke in die land!” Breyten­bach (Die Reviewer)

”…hierdie is uit­stek­ende teater, ‘n ware lek­erny!” Hurter (Art­slink)

”…Eras­mus se toneel­spel is uit­stek­end!” Kusel (Grapevine)

After a hugely suc­cess­ful run at the South African State The­atre ear­lier on in the year, Smaar­ties has been invited to play at var­i­ous other the­atres in South Africa, includ­ing the­atres in Rusten­burg, Pre­to­ria, Cen­tu­rion, Potchef­stroom and Johan­nes­burg. Now the time has come for Cape Town to wit­ness this great pro­duc­tion.

It is directed and designed by one of Mail&Gaurdian’s Top 200 Young South Africans, Quintin Wils, who says that Smaar­ties is by far the most com­plex show that he has ever directed, but adds that “…it is by far the most excit­ing pro­duc­tion that I have directed thus far! A pro­duc­tion that makes you think twice about what schiz­o­phre­nia actu­ally is.”

The Mr Cat & The Jackal Trio Show

Alter­na­tive Acoustic Folk • Run­ning Time: 60 mins
Mr Cat & The Jackal are: Gert Besselsen — Gui­tar, Accor­dion, Bouzouki, Vocals Jacques du Plessis — Gui­tar, Saw, Lap Steel, Bouzouki, Vocals Pierre Arnold Theron — Per­cus­sion, Gui­tar, Back­ing Vocals
The Mr Cat & The Jackal Trio Show con­sists of the two song­writ­ers of MCATJ Gert Besselsen and Jacques du Plessis joined by per­cus­sion­ist Pierre Arnold Theron. The show takes you deeper to the core of their music, sculpted to accen­tu­ate all the sub­tle nuances. They play most of the old favorites like Wheres My Shoes and The Devil Always Wants To Dance as well as a cou­ple more toned down songs that you wont hear at their row­dier full band shows. This is a sit down and lis­ten show not to be missed!
The exper­i­men­tal acoustic folk piece band, Mr Cat and the Jackal, have just released their third album, “S3T.“
The third album has taken nearly 3 years to record, in 3 dif­fer­ent stu­dios, divided into 3 themes and titled with three let­ters: S2T. With this album: Loathe songs, mal­adies of regret and opuses of warn­ing are care­fully tex­tured with Mr Cat and the Jackal’s unusual brand of humour. 

S3T” has lit­er­ally cost a work­ing pan­creas, a car full of instru­ments, a house rob­bery and a drum­mer. And it’s worth it. Putting these obsta­cles aside, the band man­aged to col­lide with great suc­cess and for­tune, steer­ing Mr Cat and the Jackal into the direc­tion of win­ning an MK award, no signed to an inter­na­tional artist agency and embark­ing on a suc­cess­ful UK tour. All of these affairs assem­bled explain the mood incon­sis­tency of “S3T”. It’s dark, and yet beau­ti­ful. “S3T” encom­passes three themes: Love, Regret and Doom. There are absolutely no arti­fi­cial sounds to be found on this album, only an amal­ga­ma­tion of for­eign instru­ments — some of which are hand­crafted by Mr Cat & the Jackal them­selves. 

Hav­ing just sold out their album launch show at R150.00 a ticket, the band also per­formed per­formed a sun­downer slot on Oppikoppi’s main stage for 8000 peo­ple, which resulted in three full colour photo spreads with reviews in the Mail & Gau­r­dian, News24 and the Argus over and above the media atten­tion they received around the launch of their album already.

Mr Cat & the Jackal are cur­rently avail­able for full band and unplugged three piece per­for­mances, which allows them to be flex­i­ble and remain acces­si­ble in any venue that they per­form, no mat­ter how large or small.

Cock & Bull Story

Drama • Run­ning Time: 65 mins
by Richard Zajdlic & Richard Crowe | directed by Micheal Kirch | per­formed by Rowan Studti & Dylan Skews
Warn­ing: Lan­guage | Testos­terone
Face­book Event
Trav, an up-and-coming boxer on the verge of the big time, pre­pares for bat­tle in the fight that could make his life-long dreams a real­ity. Jackie, his friend and coach, psy­ches him into fit­ness with grand illu­sions of a world of end­less bod­ily plea­sures and mate­r­ial spoils.

Trav’s zeal­ous drive for power and glory leads to ques­tion­able con­duct in the box­ing ring. Although Jackie has lit­tle regard for the rules of the game, and is only con­cerned with win­ning, he is faced with a seri­ous blow to his con­science: How far is too far?

The story delves into the themes of male friend­ship, homo­sex­u­al­ity, mas­culin­ity, dreams and ambi­tions, the fight for sur­vival and keep­ing the male ego in check. It is gritty and fierce, and the char­ac­ters are chal­lenged psy­cho­log­i­cally and phys­i­cally, mak­ing for an excit­ing, emo­tional and grip­ping jour­ney of dis­cov­ery.

What is the prize for being a real man?
The pro­duc­tion is orig­i­nally writ­ten, directed and per­formed by Richard Zajdlic and Richard Crowe in 1985, the pro­duc­tion toured in and out­side Lon­don, and had its first per­for­mance at the Palza the­atre, Rom­sey on April 25th 1985.

This stag­ing has been reworked by the cast and direc­tor to suit a South African con­text.

Drama • Run­ning Time: 70 mins
By Can­dice D’Arcy, Louis Viljoen, Nicholas Spag­no­letti | Fea­tur­ing Adrian Collins, Amy Wil­son and Bren­don Daniels | Directed by Louis Viljoen, Megan Fur­niss & Can­dice D’Arcy
Three writ­ers, three actors, an anthol­ogy of three short plays on the theme ‘A Change in the Weather’.

In Nicholas Spagnoletti’s Drowned Bride, a best man and a bride find them­selves at the bot­tom of the Atlantic, dead, after the wed­ding went hor­ri­bly wrong.
And there’s Louis Viljoen’s Trop­i­ca­lypse: Some hang­overs feel like the end of the world; some hang­overs are the end of the world.

The writ­ers were given the theme, and aside from con­straints on cast-size and set, total free­dom. Bril­liant act­ing tal­ents Adrian Collins, Amy Wil­son and Bren­don Daniels are up for the chal­lenge that Anthol­ogy presents.

Exhibit S: Ode to Saartjie Baart­man by a Black South African Woman

Per­for­mance Art • Run­ning Time: 30 mins
Per­formed by Thola Antamu
Exhibit-S, ‘Ode to Saartjie Baart­man by a black South African woman’ is a poetic per­for­mance piece inspired by mis­rep­re­sen­ta­tion, art and the story of a young woman. Born exactly 200 years before Thola Antamu in 1789, Saartjie Baart­man was a khoikhoi woman from the East­ern Cape.

“She lived to be only 24 , after a life of seem­ingly never-ending strug­gle and lies. Like me she was also orphaned as a child. She was  bought as a show­piece by an Eng­lish­man and smug­gled to Eng­land never to set foot on  her home soil again. She was sup­pos­edly well treated, paid, housed and respected by her ‘own­ers.’

”This is her story fused with  mine and told through, speech, skin, and move­ment.”
- Thola Antamu

Fol­low­ing the 30 minute per­for­mance there will be a Q & A ses­sion in the theatre.


Thola Antamu is a pro­fes­sional dancer, singer and actress spe­cial­is­ing in poetry and move­ment as a mode of cre­at­ing exhi­bi­tion­ist the­atre. After grad­u­at­ing from The Cape Acad­emy of Per­form­ing Arts, Antamu sub­se­quently trav­elled inter­na­tion­ally and was comis­sioned to cre­ate and per­form her piece “My Con­fes­sions” at JW3 in Lon­don. She also trained and per­formed with the Art­ful Bad­ger immer­sive the­atre com­pany in “Flood” at London’s feted The Vaults Fes­ti­val. In her pow­er­ful new solo pro­duc­tion, “Exhibit S, Ode to Saartjie Baart­man by a Black South African Woman”, Antamu uses a cul­mi­na­tion of her exten­sive train­ing and tech­niques, South African his­tory, every­day news, fem­i­nin­ity and black­ness to evoke per­ti­nent con­ver­sa­tions and empower women.
