Taking place 24 - 28 April 2019
Programmes starting at 6:30 and 8pm daily
Mdu Vince Nhlapo is a theatre-maker, director, choreographer, performer, and a co-founder and Artistic Director of the theatre company Great Stone Productions.
Nhlapo’s work concerns itself with spiritual and socio-political content, pursuing an avant-garde, ground breaking theatre aesthetic as a means of reviving and re-constructing the performing arts. Season 5 of The Centre for the Less Good Ideas sees him bringing an robust approach to theatre-making, spurred on by further collaboration with the Season’s many participating artists.
For Season 5, Nhlapo will be writing, directing and performing in an 11-minute epic assistant directed by Katlego Sekhosana and taking the form of a thriller based on a man who, in the fight for justice, makes the ultimate sacrifice. He will also be collaborating on a physical-theatre-based work with Lulu Mlangeni dealing with the suspenseful, complicated moments leading up to an imminent assassination.
