Theatre | Poetry • Running Time: 60 mins
Written and performed by Billy Langa Directed By Mahlatsi Mokgonyana Music by John Withers
Facebook Event

BACK BY POPULAR AUDIENCE DEMAND FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY!

From the directors of the Naledi Theatre Award Nominee JUST ANTIGONE comes a tale told through lyrical prose, poetry and physical storytelling entwined to interrogate the rules that govern life on earth, such as power, creation, politics, connection, and intuition.

In Tswalo, the performer's expression of his spiritual ‘Source’ gives the audience a baton to walk through their own paradigm of ontology. The poetry, prose and stories furnish us with the necessary tools for a deep meditation. It begs the question (or theory) of being, becoming and unbecoming.

Tswalo is a collaboration between Johannesburg Theatre Making Duo Billy Langa (Writer and Performer) and Mahlatsi Mokgonyana (Director and lighting designer) and Cape Town Based Sound Designer and Musician John Withers who created the original score and soundscapes for the show.

Hip-hop: The proverbial key that has opened the door for many to roam the earth in rhyme and rawness. Through the lyrics and the words of autobiographies and biographies, Naked Girls Reading celebrates this genre of music. From the beat, to the voice, to the words...

There is something altogether more intimate about a woman reading in the nude. Let the thrilling and eccentric ladies mesmerise you with their tales from a range of novels, short stories and modern fiction and allow you to witness the delight and splendour of women who like to read… naked. 

FAQ's 
What is Naked Girls Reading? 
At each event, a small cast of beautiful ladies remove their clothing (yes, all of it) and read to 
an adoring audience.

Are the girls really naked? 
Yes, we are.

Is the audience naked? 
No they are not.

Do the girls read to themselves or out loud? 
We read out loud to the audience. It is entertaining, magical, often funny, sometimes heart-wrenching and really very sexy.
