The Red on The Rainbow

18 November @ 7:00 pm - 21 November @ 8:45 pm

Redefining An Artistic Creative Future – Arts Alive festival November calendar Announced

The move to level one comes as an exciting development for theatre audiences who will have the privilege to experience the South Africa premiere of a Theatre Production titled “The Red on the Rainbow” written & directed by Monageng Motshabi; recipient of the Standard Bank Young Artists of the Year Award. The Red on the Rainbow, primarily inspired by recent real life events in Coligny, the play follows the aftermath of the death of a young man on a maize farm at the hands of a farmer’s son & his friends.

The play explores how time seems to remain frozen, picture-style, in an unending apartheid-ghost-dance. How with each dreary step into the future, reality seems to loop, stoop & reloop, forever trapping the amper-people of these towns in a cartoonish & feverish attempt to leap into the much lauded blissful change that our country’s simunye moment is said to have unleashed for all.

The production will be presented for a limited season at the Soweto Theatre from 18-21 November 2021.
