THE MOVEMENT RSA IS A YEAR OLD, and in that time we have done the following projects as a team:
A modern adaptation of Sophocles’ classic tale, co-directed by Billy Langa and Mahlatsi Mokgonyana, and performed by the rest of the company. ‘Just Antigone’ premiered at POPArt in February 2016, and has subsequently been staged at the Soweto Theatre, National Arts Festival, Wits Theatre’s 969 Festival, and Redfest, as well as several schools in Gauteng.
Dairnfern College: The Movement RSA facilitated a full day workshop for Ms Hanse’s Grade 9 students. We focused on Poor Theatre and Devised work, under the theme ‘South African Superheroes’. The laerners did lots o0f exercises, got lot of exercise, and in groups presented several original scenes.
Lycee Jules Verne: In April 2016, The Movement RSA conducted a workshop for the Lycee Jules Verne (International French School) in Johannesburg, to teach the students about how to read, understand and perform Shakespeare. At the end of the day the students presented scenes from various Shakespearean texts in the form of a friendly competition in front of their peers, teachers and families.
