Arts, Culture & Environment - Passage probes Manliness

In today's show, we spoke to emerging young director - Thando Doni. We were talking about his new play, Passage, that will be showcased at the Baxter Flipside for a short season from 4th to 22nd of March. Commissioned by the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Passage was devised by Doni and the cast and is an exciting new collaboration between the Baxter Theatre Centre, Magnet Theatre and Zabalaza Theatre Festival. Through combining different styles such as physical movement, music, storytelling, poetry and rituals, Passage probes and looks at how boys grow into responsible, caring men. Performed in English, Afrikaans, Xhosa, Sotho and Pedi, there is an age restriction of 12 years. Passage previews on 4th of March, opens on 5th and runs until 22nd of March at 11am (for schools) and 6pm except on the 8th of March when it starts at 8pm. Tickets cost R80 and booking is through Computicket on 0861 915 8000, online at www.computicket.com or at any Shoprite Checkers outlet.
