ZABALAZA

  • Le Cap Afrique du Sud

The Zabalaza Theatre Festival team is headed up by Thami Mbongo
(Artistic Director), Zoleka Helesi (Co-ordinator) and Bongile Mantsai
(PRO). All three actors were cast members of Lara Foot's critically
acclaimed successes Karoo Moose and Woyzeck. The dynamic trio were
involved with the Ikhwezi Festival for several years and intend to
ensure that this premier development platform – arguably
one of the top of its kind in South Africa – forms a fundamental part
of the Baxter's broader vision of becoming a vibrant and integrated
cultural hub, reflecting the diversity of the country's demographics for
all its patrons, communities, artists and visitors.

The new
name, Zabalaza Intsika eBaxter Theatre: zabalaza means 'to strive', and
intsika eBaxter Theatre means 'pillar of the Baxter Theatre'. Loosely
translated, it means two things: striving towards being a pillar of the
Baxter Theatre Centre and, as a pillar of the Baxter Theatre Centre,
striving towards success.
