Woordfees is first and foremost a festival of theatre and this year the number and variety of performances does not disappoint. Theatre masterpieces, experimental plays, dance productions and intimate performances are just some of the types of performances happening over the ten day period. There is theatre for every age, mood and occasion and tickets for many of the most popular shows are selling fast.
Some highlight performances include:
- Carpets– Nora is agoraphobic and as such has not left her house in 5 years but now she has to confront her fear and leave her make-believe world.
- Endgame– Four of South Africa’s finest actors bring Samuel Beckett’s absurdist play, Endgame, to life.
- The Borrow Pit– A strange and ambitious work produced by the 2018 Standard Bank Young Artist for Theatre, Jemma Kahn.
- Samson– This dance-music theatre production is based on the Old Testament but in the context of present-day politics.
