news in brief
Jungle Theatre Company will perform Butterfly Dreams aka Metamorphosis on the main stage at the National Arts Festival this year. 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. Catch us on 7, 8 and 9 July at 1pm on the Drostdy Lawns in Grahamstown.
