In its third year of col­lab­o­ra­tion, the POPART The­atre and the Mar­ket The­atre Lab­o­ra­tory will be stag­ing con­tem­po­rary adap­ta­tions of clas­sic Greek the­atre. Stu­dents will re­vise and refresh two pro­duc­tions for lo­cal au­di­ences un­der the guid­ance of pro­fes­sional di­rec­tors.

Ly­sis­trata, 6-9 April: A com­edy by Aristo­phanes, it ex­plores gen­der­based is­sues as the women of the city stage a sex strike to stop a rag­ing war be­tween the men. Di­rected by Mahlatsi Mok­goy­ana.

The Love of the Nightin­gale, 13-16 April: Non­du­miso Lwazi Msi­manga di­rects this adap­ta­tion of the myth of the rape of Philomele in col­lab­o­ra­tion with a six-strong cast of Mar­ket Lab in­genues.
