IN TRANSIT at Theatre Arts

Event information

Emerging playwright and director, Sibahle Mabaso is presenting an existential comedy-drama, IN TRANSIT at Theatre Arts, Observatory, as part of their national and international festival, ‘Theatre In The Dark’ that runs from 15 to 25 February 2024.

The festival seeks to reimagine how theatre can still thrive despite the rollout of loadshedding.The themes within the work tie in with the existential dread that can be located in most South Africans as they encounter loadshedding – the constant waiting for the clock to strike so that the power comes back on.

But like Passenger 26, we are each left with a choice. Especially as we approach election season. Do we sit and twiddle our thumbs, do we nap our way through the long cycles of no power, do we try to form connections, look our family members in the eye and actually talk to them, do we bargain, or do we just accept fate?

Date: 15 to 25 February

Price: R100pp

Venue address: Methodist Church Hall, Cnr Milton Road and Wesley Street, Observatory, Cape Town

Wheelchair accessibility: Yes
