TARTUFFE in Jozi - 31 May - 25 June

2017-tartuffe-facebook-JHB

 

Only few days left before welcoming Tartuffe to Johannesburg!

 

After an acclaimed tour in Soweto, Cape Town and Durban, Tartuffe will be coming at Joburg Theatre (The Fringe) for 23 performances from the 31st of May to the 25th of June! The multi awarded theatre director Sylvaine Strike and the Fortune Cookie Theatre Company are touring South Africa since early April with Molière's chef d'oeuvre.

Exploring the way in which people are easily manipulated by symbols of power and honeyed words, Tartuffe is one of the French Shakespeare's most famous work. A brilliant 100% South African cast (Craig Morris, Neil Mc Carthy, Vanessa Cooke, Khutjo Green ...) will give life to Molière's goofy characters.

Promoting the work of Molière is even more relevant today as it remains utterly universal through the ongoing power of his word. IFAS and the Alliance Française are proud to showcase the genius of one of France's most accomplished and universal artist, whose masterpiece Tartuffe will be played within a context never seen before and promises a lot of surprises...

"Sylvaine Strike and her extraordinary cast have made such magic with this production that I am filled up with how wonderful, mad, exciting and inspiring, not to mention completely hilarious, brilliant theatre can be." Megan Furniss, WeekendSpecial

"It's always surprising when a play written in 1664 is just as relevant today as it was then. Brilliantly directed by Sylvaine Strike, Molière's Tartuffe is just that. It's at once charming and chilling, with physical theatre so subtly incorporated that, by the end, you feel like the human condition is light on its feet." Briony Chisholm, What's On In Cape Town

 

This event is brought to you in association with the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS) and the Alliance Française in South Africa, and with the support of Total South Africa, BNP Paribas & RCS (a BNP Paribas group company) and Mazars.
