Theatre Roundup June Expresso

Theatre Roundup


Looking for an inspiring way to celebrate Youth Month? From classical ballet, to witnessing the life and times of Steve Biko, there are a number of inspiring ways to celebrate Youth Month at the Theatre this June. Expresso thespian Thenji Stemela recommends some stunning stage productions featuring brilliant young performers in this month’s Expresso Theatre Roundup.


Biko's Quest

Biko's Quest is narrated and performed through various modes of communication including song, dance, dialogues and multimedia. The production seeks to take audiences on a journey of memory, discovery and not only remembering Biko as a liberation icon who died, but rather celebrating the life he lived.
There will be a special performance on 16 June in honour of the 1976 Soweto uprising.


Soweto Theatre, Soweto, Johannesburg

11 - 19 June 2015

Tickets: R50 – R80




Romeo and Juliet

The Geneva Ballet will visit Johannesburg in June 2015 to perform a new representation of Shakespeare's eternally appealing tragedy "Romeo and Juliette". The story tells the tale of two lovers from opposing families - the Capulets and the Montagues. But, not even family can stand in the way of true love that Romeo and Juliette share. The world-renowned Geneva Ballet, under the direction of Philippe Cohen, opens on Wednesday June 17 and runs to Sunday June 21 for a limited season of 6 shows only. During its Johannesburg season the company will celebrate the anniversary of the 100th performance of this production of Romeo and Juliette. After Johannesburg, the ballet will move on to Cape Town, as well as the Grahamstown Festival.


The Joburg Theatre, Johannesburg

17 – 21 June 2015

Tickets: R180 – R350



A Spartacus of Africa

A Spartacus of Africa takes the tale of Spartacus, the slave, and sets it firmly in Africa. It is the familiar story of one man's battle against the indignity and cruelty of slavery and his determination to free himself and his fellow men and women. It is a progressive and edgy take on a universal story.
A Spartacus of Africa will be performed by international guest artists as well as a cast of over 100 South African dancers to the music of Aram Khachaturian, accompanied by the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra at every performance.


The Joburg Theatre, Johannesburg

4 – 14 June 2015

Tickets: R150 – R450



Artscape Opera House

27 June – 12 July 2015

Tickets: R150 – R475
