The Center for the Less Good Idea at Arts on Main is showcasing a brilliant Shakespearan play “Umsebenzi Ka Bra Shakes” from this Friday at 18:30.

The play is performed by a number of brilliant young actors and directed by Hayleigh Evans and Phala O Phala who are both revered theatre makers.

The Center for the Less Good Idea was founded by renowned artist, Mr William Kentridge.

As part of the centre’s For Once projects, Umsebenzi Ka Bra Shakes interrogates the use and relevance of Shakespeare, and indeed classic texts for South African performers, storytellers, makers, learners and audiences and explores Shakespeare within culture and language contexts,
raising questions around violence, masculinity and representation.

There will be extraordinary performances by Sibahle Mangena, Molatelo Maffa, Thulisile Nduvane, Aalliyah Matintela, Rachael Neary, S, Lwazi Mayeki and Bongani Dlamini, who are also available for any interviews.
