Screened as part of the 2017 Fugard Bioscope World Arts Season. From The Royal Ballet.

The first revival of Wayne McGregor’s critically acclaimed ballet triptych, inspired by the works of Virginia Woolf.

The pioneering literary work of Virginia Woolf is the inspiration for multi-award- winning choreographer Wayne McGregor’s brilliant triptych for The Royal Ballet. McGregor has long been at the cutting edge of ballet, working with collaborators from across the artistic world, and in this critically acclaimed work he combines themes from three of Woolf’s landmark novels – Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves – with elements of her letters, essays and diaries. Acclaimed British composer Max Richter creates a specially commissioned score incorporating electronic and live music.

Screened as part of the 2018 Fugard Bioscope World Arts Cinema Season. From the National Theatre.

The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role.

A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph).

Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.

Internationally acclaimed author Zakes Mda launches his new novel, The Sculptors of Mapungubwe, at the Fugard Theatre on 21 October 2013. He is joined on stage by author Rachel Zadok, playwright Athol Fugard and jazz singer Black Porcelain. In the timeless kingdom of Mapungubwe, the royal sculptor has two sons, Chata and Rendani. As they grow, so grows their rivalry - Rendani mastering the forms of the animals that run in the wild hills and lush valleys of the land, Chata learning to carve fantastic beings from his dreams, creatures never before seen on the Earth. From this rivalry between brothers, Zakes Mda crafts an irresistibly rich fable of love and family. What makes the better art - a perfect likeness or a creation fuelled by inspiration? Who makes a better wife - a princess or a mysterious dancer? Ageless and contemporary, deceptive in its simplicity and mythical in its scope, The Sculptors of Mapungubwe encompasses all we know of love, envy and the artist`s primal urge to forge art from nature and nature into art.
