news in brief
Jungle Theatre Company performed Butterfly Dreams aka Metamorphosis with three performances during March. The performances drew a crowd of about 1500 people consisting of members from the general public as well as children and youth from various community and arts organizations across the Cape Metropolitan who were invited and sponsored to come and watch this powerful performance. It was fun to see such a mixed audience. A street theatre piece, Butterfly Dreams speaks to the beginnings of Jungle Theatre Company, which grew out of performances at street festivals and events back in 1995, when Artistic Director, Vincent Meyburgh, began his career developing the unique performance style and artistic principles of Jungle Theatre Company. As a non-verbal and hugely visual piece the theme of Butterfly Dreams links to the actor’s personal stories of big transformation.
River of Life
Jungle Theatre Company performed River Of Life during the March school holidays (Water Week) at the Masque Theatre in Muizenberg with a total of three performances. The shows were very well received by the attending audiences. “We loved the imagery – told us a beautiful story but also left so much to our imagination. The actors all took part with such heart, we love authentic “Africa”, loved the music!” – Natanya du Toit. In partnership with the Zandvlei Trust 15 of their beneficiaries (pictured above) were given comps on each performance day.
River Of Life is an African fairy tale about a rural tribe and their special princess Mamlambo, who all live by a beautiful river full of magical creatures. With her community in crisis, Princess Mamlambo finds the courage to travel a path alone. She adventures through a hot dry desert, a teaming jungle and climbs the tallest mountain, all to find the Sangoma, save the river and her village.
