The extraordinary talents of one of South Africa’s artistic national treasures, the Handspring Puppet Company, will be combined with two progressive and award-winning wine estates on the 1 June at the Baxter Theatre Centre’s third Taste, Tweet and Theatre evening.
From 6.30pm on the evening, prominent writers, bloggers, tweeters and personalities from the theatre and wine industries will gather for the preview performance of the highly anticipated Ouroboros, directed by Janni Younge, where they will sample a selection of wines from both the Fairhills Fairtrade and Joubert-Tradauw Wine Estates, before watching the performance at 8.15pm.
On the night guests and patrons are encouraged to mingle, taste wine, and use the various social media platforms available to chat, tweet, podcast and update their Facebook pages and blogs before and after the show, but definitely not during. The wine will be supplied by Joubert- Tradauw situated in Barrydale, at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains, and Fairhills Wine Estates in Rawsonville in the Breede River Valley.
The extraordinary puppetry production, Ouroboros, by one of South Africa’s leading creative and Tony Award winning teams, Handspring Puppet Company, will be headlining the event. This anticipated production is showing at the Baxter Theatre for a limited season from 1 to 11 June: Directed by 2010 Standard Bank Young Artist Award winner for Theatre, Janni Younge, with master puppeteers Basil Jones and Adrian Kohler, this tale of dreaming and the cycles of life has been created with evocative imagery. At its heart, it is a love story between a dancer, Nokobinisa, and a poet, Andre.
