Best of the Flikker & Flash festival
By Antoinette Kellermann, Wessel Pretorius, Phillip Rademeyer, Melissa Myburg, Ira Blanckenberg, Cintaine Schutte and Bianca Oosthuizen

YAKABANI LE PANTY (translates into ‘whose panty is this’)
By Carin Bester and Peggy Mongoato

By Chase Lutron, Danneline Ramsden, Farrol Coetzee, Jerome Rex, Phumlani Mndebele, Sinethemba Bibi,Whaden Johannes and Wilken Calitz
This is an encouraging promise of what the South African version of hip-hop theatre could look like. With elements of dance, spoken word, rap, music and pop culture, it tackles identity and personal histories.
