The inaugural season of Scenes on Screens offers a host of stories and feelings for the viewer's delight. Four short stories woven together into one sleek 40-minute offering for only R60 on South African Theatre On Demand.
Audiences have claimed: “I could binge-watch this!”, and “Beautiful work! I love love loved it!” But you don't have to believe them. You can watch these delicious performances yourself:
A triptych by Jemma Kahn, of three short lip-syncs: Beast Fur, Somebody You’ve Already Painted Many Times From Memory, and Steve Smith. Starring Albert Pretorius, De Klerk Oelofse and Lindiwe Matshikiza.
‘Ms Cardigan’s Firm Tutelage’
Ms Cardigan is a music teacher. But beneath her tightly buttoned blouse there is the heaving bosom of a woman with needs and desires. An untameable woman. Jon Keevy reads his erotic comedy of grace notes and bel cantos for your pleasure.
'Hi, I’m him'
A reflective piece by Wasabi. “The piece allows me to look into myself, I find that I'm often chasing accolades, respect or recognition. I wanted to take some time and look around at where I am, what I have created and more importantly: who I am. It is finally finding peace within myself and where I am meant to be.”
‘The Play is The Thing’
It is an audition that is not an audition. A theatre that is not a theatre. A play that is not a play. Written and performed by Sophie Joans and Maggie Gericke, it captures what it is to be an actor in Cape Town. Today. Right Now. Or maybe a few months ago. Originally a theatre sketch, it has been adapted for the screen with the assistance of Daniel Steyn.
“Scenes on Screens | Season One” is only available until the end of December 2020, so make your way to South African Theatre On Demand to experience a taste of theatre for the digital age.
