Ballet when the internationally celebrated Crown of The Russian Ballet
Company is showcased on May 6, 7,

Specially prepared for South African

the express aim to thrill classical ballet enthusiasts of all ages.
The programme opens with the world
premiere of Emelianov’s ‘Manfred’, a
one-act ballet choreographed to one
of Tchaikovsky’s undoubted masterpieces, the symphony ‘Manfred’. The
narrative for this work deals with

deep remorse and moral anguish,
coming from Lord Byron’s poem of
the same name. Manfred is a Romantic hero of epic and Faustian proportions. In his idealistic dilemma he is
doomed to destroy the very ones he
loves. Imbued with supernatural elements, the metaphysical torment of
Manfred is given the choreographic
stamp that audiences internationally
have come to associate with the work
of Emelianov.
The second half features the one-act
‘Romeo and Juliet’ and an excerpt
from ‘The Sleeping Beauty’. Danced
to Tchaikovsky’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’
overture and featuring choreography

The Next 48hOURS • What’s Hot
Award winning ‘The Pervert Laura’ comes to the Fugard Theatre
LOUIS VILJOEN’S controversial,
award winning play ‘The Pervert Laura’ will be returning to Cape Town
stages in May for a run at The Fugard Theatre.
and the titular star of the show,
EMILY CHILD, both of whom were
crowned winners at the 50th Fleur
du Cap Theatre Awards ceremony in
To know one character, or person, as
well as we get to know Laura, but
shed light on what we didn’t know
about ourselves. That’s my considered, responsible answer. The more
instinctual answer is: I hope the play
knocks you down and manhandles
you until you relent and give in.
‘The Pervert Laura’ is a very dark
and disturbing work. What sparked
the premise for the play in your
mind and led you down that creative path?
I find it quite easy to access the
darker parts of myself. I believe we
all have such rich wells of abhorrent
thoughts, however we’re taught to
suppress it and pretend it doesn’t exist. But it does, and I suppose I trade
in it. I knew I wanted to write something with a female protagonist, or
the main protagonist, and the idea
seemed to suit that goal. If I trace
the origin of the whole thing, it’ll be
the desire to write something that
fully resembles a character study and
in the final moments becomes more
of a genre piece. In that way I believe it rewards an audience if they
re-watch it.
You’ve had a couple of plays in recent years where females didn’t
feature as much, or at all. Did you
feel pressure at all to address that
by writing a play with a female as
the chief protagonist?
Well, I’ve written more plays with female characters than without. ‘The
Verbalists’ and ‘The Kingmakers’ feature roles for women, and ‘Champ’
has an integral female role, but those
plays were admittedly masculine in
its approach. I didn’t feel pressure
to write one thing or another; it was
just the idea that suited a woman
better than a man.
Did you write the titular character
with Emily Child in mind?
Once I had the idea and I knew it
would be next thing I dedicated myself to, I knew I wanted to write it
for Emily. We’re friends and we’ve
worked together before, but I felt it
was time that both of us do something outside our comfort zones. I’ve
been a fan of hers for quite some
time and I wanted to see her in a role
that she could claim wholly as her
Emily Child and Guy de Lancey
in a scene from ‘The Pervert
own. She did and then some.
You must have felt tremendous
pride when Emily won the Best Actress prize at the Fleur du Caps.
What was coursing through your
mind as her name was read out?
“Holy f**k holy f**k holy f**k YES!!”
Nick Pauling and I were working out
the odds for weeks before the ceremony: If this one wins this award,
then it opens up Emily to win, or if
that play does well it means she’ll be
up against whomever, and so on and
so on, trying to figure the odds. But
when she won it made sense; it was
the truest performance in the group
and it was a tough group. I felt immense pride for my friend and I also
thought she looked fantastic in that
You yourself won the Rozalie van
der Gucht prize for New Director,
as well as the Best New Play award
for ‘The Kingmakers’. How does that
validation feel? Does it imbue in you
at all a renewed sense of confidence
going forward with future projects?
I’ve never needed validation when it
comes to my writing, as awful as that
sounds. I had to work for years without that validation and still attempt
a few plays a year. But when it comes
to the directing it feels great to be
recognized and it certainly gives me
confidence to direct more. Perhaps
even to try other people’s scripts.
What do you hope audiences walk
away with after having seen ‘The
Pervert Laura’?
I hope the effect of the play, the
shock of it, gets mixed in with the
raw honesty that we’re aiming for.
What is the biggest challenge for
you about being a “living playwright” in South Africa?
Honestly? Money. I won’t get rich
doing this, but if I can live and pay
rent each month, have a drink with
my friends and see my mom for
Christmas, then that’s a pretty good
life. Oh; and to keep being true to
myself and not resort to work that
others think I should be making. If
you try make something for everyone, you’ll end up making nothing
for no one.
What can we expect from you next?
I’m working on a few scripts at the
moment, which is to say that I’m
horribly blocked and I feel emptier
than a matinee for one of my shows.
My main goal is to get ‘Laura’ up and
running at The Fugard and to find
another life and run for ‘The Kingmakers’. More people need to see
actors like Pierre Malherbe, Rebecca
Makin-Taylor and Brendon Daniels and if someone else stages ‘The
Kingmakers’, you can see all three on
the same stage. That’s my pitch from
now on.
Is it fair to say the role of Laura
is the most challenging you’ve ever
The role I am playing at the time is
always the most challenging. The
more I perform, the more I realise
how much there is to learn. So yes,
Laura is my most challenging role to
date, but when I take on a new play,
that role will take its place.
Tell us about the process you underwent to “find” the character.
My starting point is always in the
text. Louis’ writing is incredibly detailed and deeply sophisticated. Every
pause or ellipsis means something
that is very specific to the character
and to the story. I spent (and am still
spending) a lot of time reading and
re-reading the play. His work forces
you to go down a sort of vortex. By
being sucked into it, the character
starts to become clear. That, and I
Emily Child and Louis Viljoen
at the Fleur du Cap Awards in
Googled images a lot…“ troubled
young women” was helpful. Also,“
love or hate therapy.” You would be
amazed by what comes up.
Leading from the above, how do you
go about getting yourself into the
mental state that is required to
portray the character truthfully on
performance nights?
I am a big believer in an old-school
physical warm up. I don’t think your
mind can engage honestly if your
body is still stuck with your personal
stress from the day. I role around and
hum a lot. I think the most important thing when trying to do anything truthfully is not to have your
head somewhere else. I’m not one
of those actors who sits in a dark
corner for hours “getting into it”. I
think the great challenge and thrill of
acting is learning how to “step into
it” and “be present”, as they say. I
do like to choose a specific “smell”
for each character I play though so
I always give myself a final spray of
something a minute or two before
the show starts.
What went through your mind when
your name was called out to receive
the prize for Best Actress at this
year’s Fleur du Cap Awards?
“But it was supposed to be Sandra
Prinsloo!” I was very surprised and
happy. Awards are so helpful in marketing shows. It means a lot to be
celebrated by your colleagues and
Actors usually play coy when it
comes to awards, saying that in the
bigger scheme of things that they
don’t matter, or shouldn’t matter, at
the very least. Surely you felt some
form of validation after having
taken a risk with such a demanding role…
I agree that awards should never define an actor or their career, but who
am I kidding – it feels good to win
something! I think it’s human to
enjoy a pat on the back every now
and again, especially when it is for
something you really believe in. This
play is an ensemble piece so it also
felt like a high five for our team. It is
a great privilege to be working with
people like Guy, Nick, Sarah, Terry
and Louis.
How challenging was it dealing with
the nudity and sexual content in the
The first few rehearsals were a little
giggly, hot- flushed and sweaty, but
we all relaxed very quickly. The focus
shifts from being about the sexual
act, to what that act means in relation to Laura and her story. You forget that what you are doing might
seem shocking to an audience because you are focused on doing what
you are doing honestly.
Louis Viljoen has a very specific
rhythm with his prose that not all
actors can deal with. How challenging is it for you getting used to
those speech patterns?
It definitely takes a little bit of getting used to, but the trick seems to
be to say what the character says,
exactly as it is written. Actors often
enjoy adding pauses and paraphrasing for the sake of “emotion”. Louis’
writing has taught me to fight these
impulses and in doing so, experience
a freedom in his language.
Finally, what can we expect from
you next?
I will be performing in Barney Simon’s ‘Born in the RSA’, directed by
Thoko Ntshinga at the Grahamstown
Festival and at The Baxter Theatre
later this year. I’m really looking forward to that.

Dance production charts mythical Theatre’s the ticket for ‘Isidingo’ star
journey of transformation
PETER TROMP chatted to well known
actor MAURICE PAIGE, who will
be starring in a new production of
Adam Small’s ‘Krismis Van Map Jacobs’, which will be showcased at the
Artscape Arena from Wednesday, May
6, to Saturday, May 16.
Set in the Cape Flats in the seventies,
during the forced removals, the play
tells the story of the gang leader Map
Jacobs (Paige) who comes out of jail
on parole, and the impact on the community to which he returns.
‘Cinnamon’ dancers
he Afrika Ablaze dance production ‘Cinnamon’ is currently being
showcased at the Baxter Theatre
until Saturday, May 2.
‘Cinnamon’ is an exotic tapestry of a
dance/drama that explores the sacredness
of joy along with loyalty and love against
a backdrop of greed, obsession and misguidance. The story of the young girl Cinnamon invites the audience to bear witness to her mythical journey from a world
she is familiar with, to a world she doesn’t
recognise. Compelled by tragedy, Cinnamon ventures from her ancestral home
amongst the wolves, to deliver an unforgettable message to mankind.
Director Glenda Jones as a choreographer has for the past 13 years transformed
many young lives through the influence of
dance and drama. Her 2013 production,
‘Raw Silk’, was well received when it was
showcased at the Baxter Theatre.
‘Cinnamon’ will be performed by a cast
of energetic and motivated dancers, lead
by Chelsea Jacobs, who will be making her
debut as lead dancer.
To enhance the authenticity of the
story, Jones has trained a group of mature women who portray the ancestral
tribe that Cinnamon hails from. Jones
believes that their dance performance is
a breakthrough in a world that can easily
confuse the higher purpose of dance with
age related bias and physical idolatry. UCT
Drama graduate Tasneem Jakoet will perform as the narrator.

When did you discover your love of
performance, and how did you go
about carving out a career for yourself?
I was 15 years old when I discovered
that I’m a performer when I entered
the KKNK festival. I had a week to
prepare for a character and won that
year’s Best Supporting Actor award.
I’ve never looked back since.
Tell us about ‘Krismis Van Map Jacobs’ and what audiences can look
forward to.
The play is very close to my heart and
I’ve always wanted to do it. I’ve been
waiting 10 years to do this character,
so I’m very exciting, but at the same
time I’m also quite nervous because it’s
a very difficult part to play. The audiences can definitely expect a different,
vibrant “Map” from Maurice Paige.
What personally attracted you to become involved with the production?
The fact that I always wanted to do
this play is what attracted me to this
project. When I received the call from
director Andre Samuels, I immediately
said yes without hesitation (laughs).

What is it about the theatre that
continues to attract you to it?
What excited me about theatre is that
its now, its live and you only have that
moment to make it work and believable to your audience. It’s that rush
and presence of 110 people or so’s attention that gives me that drive.
Tell us about your role and how you
have gone about inhabiting the character.
The role is a very hard, dramatic part,
but in order to give the audience a
different view of “Map” I’m playing
against the obvious and how others
have played it.

Laying down our stories
By Martin Myers
had the chance to attend an
amazing talk last week at the
school Christel House in Ottery
by Trevor Jones and he spoke
at length to the learners about
mentors, reading and learning
from one’s peers.
Is enough of this being done
and are the artists who have stories
to tell, telling their stories?
In 2004 Hugh Masekela published his compelling autobiography, ‘Still Grazing: The Musical
Journey of Hugh Masekela’ (coauthored with D. Michael Cheers),
which Vanity Fair described as follows: “you’ll be in awe of the many
lives packed into one.” (Try find it
in a bookshop now in South Africa.) Last year we had PJ Powers
releasing her book entitled ‘Here I
am’, which was a sweet read, but
nothing of real substance except
an opportunity for PJ to tell her
story. Call it a vanity project if you
will .My point is a book should
have something to say. Even the
Sachin Tendulkar cricket book was
a bland read and just went over the
facts, which you had read in previous press articles.
The reason I talk about books
this week is I saw on Facebook that
Cindy Alter’s much anticipated autobiography ‘No Substitute’ will be
on book shelves on May 25.
Alter is an internationally successful, award winning, chart topping, multi-million album selling
singer songwriter from South Africa. As front lady of bands including Clout, Zia and Alter Irving, her
four decade music career has delivered no fewer than 13 albums
and has taken her to all corners of
the globe including Germany, Holland, England and America. Alter
is also a published poet and spent
fifteen years living and working on
the music scene in Los Angeles.
She returned to South Africa after

resides in Johannesburg and is a

continues to perform and record

Alter tells the stories, even if they
are awkward and uncomfortable
and the book is not just another
puff piece, which is important, as
a book like this can be so inspirational to younger generations to
learn from.
It is a shame that in the music

the stories being put down in print

Johnny Clegg must have one heck
of a story and so must the likes of
Ray Phiri from Stimela. Imagine
the stories about the ‘Graceland’
tour with the likes of Tony Cedras
et al. Is it that we find South African music stories not interesting
enough, or do we rely on television documentaries to try and tell
the story? Books and reading help
foster a culture of learning and this
can only be good for future generations of children who are interested in music and this can surely
help foster a love of the arts for the
greater good of all South Africans.

Mae Whitman and Bella Thorne in ‘The Duff’
Bianca (Mae Whitman) is a content
high school senior whose world
is shattered when she learns the
student body refers to her as ‘The
Duff’ (Designated Ugly Fat Friend)
to her prettier, more popular
friends (Skyler Samuels and Bianca
Santos). With her universe turned
upside down, she ignores words of
wisdom from her favourite teacher (Ken Jeong) and enlists Wesley
(Robbie Amell), a slick but charming jock, to help set her apart from
the pack and erase her label forever. In doing so, she hopes to land
her crush Toby (Nick Eversman),
and find the confidence to overthrow the school’s ruthless label
maker Madison (Bella Thorne) by
reminding everyone that no matter what people look or act like, we
are all someone’s DUFF...and that’s
totally fine.
Executive Producer Lane Shefter
When millionaire hedge fund manager James (Will Ferrell) is nailed
for fraud and bound for a stretch
in San Quentin, the judge gives
him 30 days to get his affairs in
Desperate, he turns to Darnell
(Kevin Hart) to prep him for a life
behind bars. But despite James’
one-percenter assumptions, Darnell is a hard-working small business owner who has never received
a parking ticket, let alone been to
Together, the two men do
whatever it takes for James to “get
hard” and, in the process, discover
how wrong they were about a lot
of things – including each other.
The idea for ‘Get Hard’ originated with producing partners Will
Ferrell and Adam McKay imagining what the average person might
do if suddenly seized from a nice,
comfortable life and confronted
with the prospect of a 10-year
stretch behind bars.
Ferrell, who stars as a man in
exactly that situation, recalls them
“spit-balling about what that moment would be like, if, for whatever reason, you found out that you
were going to prison.
Bishop first learned of the novel
‘The Duff’ when she saw the partially written book in the office of
Joanna Stampfel-Volpe, a book
agent in New York. Bishop instantly loved the title and the idea, and
read the book that night. The next
day, she called Stampfel-Volpe and
asked for the chance to secure a
movie deal. Bishop immediately
sent the project to producers McG
and Mary Viola of Wonderland
Sound and Vision and said, “You
have to read this now!”
“We got about 100 pages of
the book in manuscript form” says
Viola. “Lane emphasized that the
book was very special.” Like Bishop, Viola read the pages overnight.
“I called Lane the next day and
said ‘This is amazing. The voice is
so original. We have to get this
book,’” she says. McG agreed. “I
just thought it was something that
was ‘zeitgeisty’, of-the-moment –
so relatable and just true to life,”
he says.
The producers were soon surprised to find that the original
voice belonged to author Kody
What would be your thought
process? How would you prepare?
Would you immediately try to flee
the country?
“It’s one of those nightmares
you have about how you might survive,” Ferrell continues. “You think,
‘I’d have to learn how to fight, or
how to perform sexual favours. I’d
probably have to join a gang’ — all
those things you get from watching prison shows on TV where you
realize, ‘I’d be killed immediately.
Keplinger, who wrote the book
titled ‘The Duff’ when she was just
17 years-old.
“We had no idea she was a teenager until Lane was working out
the details of the deal and Kody
said she would need to discuss it
with her mother, “says Viola.
Bishop says, “I thought, ‘This
cannot be a 17-year-old. She has
the high school voices down, but
this is someone who knows how to
write because the emotion woven
throughout is dead on.’ There’s a
lot going on (in the book) and a lot
of complexity underneath it all.”
McG and Viola had previously
worked with the film’s director Ari
Sandel, the Academy Award winning director, producer and writer
of the comedic short film ‘West
Bank Story’, on the action webisode series, ‘Aim High’, about a 16year old high school student who
lives a double life as a teen spy.
For Sandel, the opportunity to
make a teen comedy (a genre that
he has long admired) was one he
couldn’t pass up. “I think any comedy director is excited at the opportunity of doing a high school
film because we all grew up with
iconic high school films, whether
it’s John Hughes’ films or ‘Mean
Girls’ or ‘Superbad’. Those movies
really stick with you through your
teenage years.”
McG believes that one of the
keys to making a really funny comedy is getting the actors to feel
comfortable on set and keeping an
environment where the actors are
allowed to play. Sandel encouraged
the cast to bring their own real life
high school perspectives and experiences to the film. Star Mae Whitman credits Sandel for keeping the
delicate tone of being funny while
still having heart and depth. She
felt very in tune and collaborative
with her director. “We played a lot
and we tried a million different
things on set,” she says.
Or I’d be someone’s bitch.’”
He gets no argument there from
Kevin Hart. “I’d give him seven
minutes,” jokes Hart, who stars opposite Ferrell in this outrageous and
satirical comedy about two guys
who work in the same building but
live in different worlds, until they
strike an unusual and potentially
life-changing deal that challenges
their most basic – and hilariously
off-base – preconceptions about so
many things.

advantages of following a low-GI (Glycaemic Index) diet. Besides resulting in
sustained energy levels, improved
concentration and increased stamina, low-GI eating holds the following specific health benefits: lowered

Krisjan Rossouw showcases solo
photography exhibition in Franschhoek
The exhibition ‘We never dreamt of seas...’
by fine art photographer Krisjan Rossouw is
currently on show at The Gallery at Grande
Provence Heritage Wine Estate in Franschhoek until May 20.
With this exhibition, the Cape Town based
Rossouw continues the exploration of identity and silent triumph of the subjects he
photographs, which he first established in his
debut series, ‘Dark Paradise’.
The use of light and shadow with nontraditional photographic lighting sources is a
signature of his stylistic approach. He believes
each model remains an active collaborator to
the process.
“The previously poetic play of botanical accents from ‘Dark Paradise’, however,
now evolves to what I see as a deeper,
more wistful study. An expression of
self amidst the metaphor of broken, lost, and
discarded things. The still strength of will. A
quiet war won,” says Rossouw.
A self-taught fine art photographer, Rossouw has been pursuing professional photography since 2009. His first international
exhibition was held at The Box Gallery in
Hamburg in 2013, and his influences include
Caravaggio, American photographer David
LaChapelle and Tretchikoff.

‘The Blacks Only Comedy Show’
was co-established by Kau in 2004
to give emerging black comedians
a platform to showcase their talent.
Over the past decade, ‘Blacks Only
Comedy’ has become renowned for
featuring seasoned stand-up talent
and budding comics. True to its roots,
the “cast” of ‘Blacks Only Comedy’
primarily comprises people and puppets of colour.
Kau has been on the South African comedy scene since 1998 when
he became the first black comedian
to perform at the Smirnoff Comedy
Festival in Cape Town. That and the
raging success of Blacks Only Comedy
are among Kau’s many highlights.

Western Cape Winter Series to Tru-Cape MTB Race to trek
through Grabouw forests
kick off at Kenilworth
Cape owners, trainers and racegoers
can look forward to the popular R1
million Western Cape Winter Series
for three-year-old colts and geldings
and the R600000 Winter Series for
fillies, which are both upon us.
The male series consists of three
Grade 3 races, all to take place at
Kenilworth Racecourse. They are the
R250000 Tekkie Town Winter Guineas over 1600m on Sunday, May 3;
the R250000 Winter Classic over
1800m on Sunday, May 31; and the
R250000 Winter Derby over 2400m
on Saturday, June 27.
A bonus of R250000 will be paid to
any horse who can win all three legs
of this series.
The Winter Series for fillies will
consist of three Listed races at Kenilworth, the R150000 Sweet Chestnut Stakes over 1400m on May
3; the R150000 Stormsvlei Mile
over 1600m on May 31; and the
R150000 Winter Oaks over 2200m
on June 27.
A bonus of R150000 will be won by
any filly who can win all three legs
of this series.
The Winter Series was made famous
by the great Mike Bass-trained Pocket Power, who won all three legs in
2006, before going on to win nine
Gr 1 races, including the L’Ormarins
Queen’s Plate four times, the J&B
While there will be many technical
challenges and a single track, the
three routes 50km, 25km and 10km
of The Tru-Cape MTB Race on Saturday, May 2 offer something for everyone.
Tru-Cape Fruit Marketing is a
long-time sponsor of this race that
takes riders through the forests and
mountains of the apple-growing valley of Grabouw.
According to route Director, Gerhard Huiskens, there will be new sin-
gle-track routes through pine forests,
on gravel, on sand, around dams as
well as on hard surfaces, calling it
one of the most scenic routes available. There will be lots to do and
eat at The Grabouw Country Club
for supporters and riders. The event
serves as a major fundraiser for The
Grabouw High School.

Durban July once. The Stormsvlei
Mile is named after Pocket Power’s mother, who was a champion
Last year the Dean Kannemeyertrained Power King made a bold bid
to win all three legs of the male Winter Series, winning the first two legs
before finishing just 1,25 lengths
back in second in the final leg. He
now looks to be a leading candidate
for the Vodacom Durban July.
The Justin Snaith-trained Acrostar
also went close to landing the Winter Series for fillies, winning the first
leg and finishing runner up in both
of the remaining two legs. She will
also be campaigning in the Champions Season in KZN this winter.
It should be an adventurous day in Grabouw
