Sibikwa Arts Centre
Sibikwa Arts Centre in association with the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS) and Théâtre du Soleil bring you Ariane Mnouchkine's epic theatre piece "1789", directed by veteran South African directors Phyllis Klotz and Smal Ndaba.
“1789”, so named for the year of the French Revolution, transports its audience to the streets of Paris - to a country in turmoil on the brink of a revolution and follows the journey of a range of citizens and the rise against an oppressive regime in the quest for Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.
Audiences will be enthralled by this immersive experience, that raises profound questions about democracy, an appreciation of the power of unity and, hopefully, a desire for further debate.
The production, supported by the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, the French Institute in Paris and the City of Paris, opens to the public on Bastille Day, 14 July, at Sibikwa Arts Centre.
Ticketing options include (1) a single ticket, (2) a ticket and a light French meal, and (3) a ticket, shuttle from Rosebank Mall and a light French Meal.
Vive la révolution!
