Bambi Kellermann is Evita Bezuidenhout’s younger sister. She is the chalk to Tannie’s cheese. Stripper, sex worker and grande horizontal who graduated from the University of Sex Cum Laude – and Fleur de Cap Winner 2010 for Best Cabaret, Bambi is back at the Fugard Theatre from 6 August for 3 weeks in the world premiere of her new fabulous onslaught against the prudish, the improper and the pathetic.

“50 Shades of Grey” was focused on one specific colour of behaviour. Bambi’s new cabaret includes a rainbow selection of other choices. It is also her journey from teenage confusions, through youthful experimentation, into middle-aged compromise to her twilight-year common sense about life, love, laughter and lies. It’s not just about sex; it’s about enjoying what comes naturally. And if it’s not natural, be careful.

With musical direction by Godfrey Johnson at the piano, Bambi takes a raunchy ride to the other side of daily life: relationships, trust, happiness, hope, love and fidelity. Sex is the full-frontal focus, with words, music, toys and tinsel. Recommended to anyone who believes in freedom of expression and the right to choose what is best for them when the lights are low – all presented with the wisdom of experience, humour of recall and songs that remind and remain.

Celebrate Women’s Month with a bang!

Quattro Fusion, the popular classical/jazz combo of Melanie Scholtz and Samson Diamond, will be on the Fugard Studio stage on Sunday 11 December. Bokani Dyer (Standard Bank Young Artist for jazz 2011) on the piano, with Claude Cozens on drums and Shane Cooper on bass, will be opening this cream-of-SA-jazz evening which kicks off at 18h00.  This once off event is proudly presented by Standard Bank and the Fugard Theatre.

Quattro Fusion features Standard Bank Young Artist for Jazz 2010, vocalist Melanie Scholtz , teaming up with violinist Samson Diamond, Standard Bank Young Artist for Music 2010, in an exploration of light classical and jazz repertoire. Both musicians have excelled in their formal  classical education and both are equally comfortable in a jazz environment. Diamond is also a former leader of the internationally acclaimed Buskaid Soweto String Ensemble from its inception in 1997, and Scholtz graduated cum laude from the UCT Opera School, and is a vocalist grounded in the down-to-earthiness of the blues, R&B and legendary jazz singers like Dee Bridgewater and Billie Holiday.

fter graduating in 2008, Dyer’s trio became a regular fixture at the popular Green Dolphin restaurant in Cape Town, and he played at the Cape Town International Jazz festival with Jimmy Dludlu and toured with the band in and around South Africa. They were also a backing band for high profile jazz artists, including Jonas Gwangwa and Judith Sephuma. Dyer then joined the Moreira Project led by Mozambique saxophonist, Moreira Chonguica for the launch of his second album in Namibia, Mozambique and Cape Town. Dyer is the current winner of the Standard Bank Young Artist Award for jazz(2011).

Screened as part of the Tri Continental Film Festival 2015.

Red Lines provides cinematic boots on the ground, offering a rare window into the Syrian conflict, taking us from the trenches to the halls of power worldwide and becoming, along the way, a searing expose of an inhumane crisis. The film follows two young Syrian activists who organise when no one else will. Razan, a wealthy socialite turned revolutionary, coordinates a smuggling network for bringing in humanitarian aid and journalists into Syria. Damascus born Mouaz works his contacts in the West, becoming the primary source for intel from the opposition on the ground.

While pleading their case abroad, the two navigate a minefield at home, facing agonizing decisions of who to aid and who to trust, all while hatching a Trojan plan to counter the extremists` rise to power by creating one free, democratically run village and spreading from there. But when the Assad regime redoubles its attacks on civilians with tactical starvation, barrel bombs and even chemical warfare, hope for the entire region suffers crushing casualties.

Screened as part of the 2017 Fugard Bioscope World Arts Season. From The Globe Theatre.

Ruling by divine right, but himself ruled by caprice, King Richard exiles Henry Bolingbroke and seizes his father’s vast estates. While Richard is distracted by a rebellion in Ireland, Bolingbroke returns to England, intent on recovering his rightful property and, with the support of his disgruntled peers, perhaps seizing the crown itself.

Dazzlingly eloquent and ceremonious, Richard II invests a weak and self-dramatising man with tragic status and represents Shakespeare’s most searching exploration of the meaning of kingship and the rising powers that can destroy it.

Captured Live at the Royal Opera House.

In Rigoletto, Verdi charts the fate of his larger-than-life characters – the tormented jester trying to avenge himself on his heartless playboy employer the Duke of Mantua, who has carelessly seduced Rigoletto’s innocent daughter Gilda – in music of immense theatrical punch and instant memorability. Based on Victor Hugo’s controversial play, Le Roi s’amuse, Verdi’s 1851 tragedy caused one of his many rows with the censors before its Venetian premiere. Following a few minor compromises, the work triumphed locally, then internationally. The score’s most celebrated highlights – the Duke’s ‘Questa o quella’ and ‘La donna è mobile’, Gilda’s ‘Caro nome’ and the famous quartet (which Hugo believed actually improved on his play at that point in the action) – are among the best known set- pieces in all opera. First seen in 2001, David McVicar’s production (like his Faust and Adriana Lecouvreur in the last Cinema Season) teems with life and colour and, with Tanya McCallin’s period costumes and Michael Vale’s starkly effective sets, it provides an ideal frame for Verdi’s exploration of love, emotional betrayal and the darkest revenge.

From the Royal Opera House. Screened as part of the 2014 & 2015 World Cinema Season.

A major work from the remarkable partnership of playwright and poet Bertolt Brecht and composer Kurt Weill, Mahagonny was first performed in Leipzig in 1930. Its first ever Royal Opera staging, by Associate Director of Opera John Fulljames, is sung in English,and conducted by Mark Wigglesworth – recently announced as the successor to Edward Gardner as Music Director of English National Opera. Mahagonny is a satire on money, morality and pleasure-seeking among the dubious citizens of a fictional city. The richly varied, jazz-infused score, influenced by ragtime music, includes such irresistible melodies as the ‘Alabama Song’ and many dramatic ensembles. The superb cast includes Kurt Streit as the wild lumberjack Jimmy, Christine Rice as his sweetheart Jenny, Anne Sofie von Otter in a welcome return to The Royal Opera as the cunning Leokadja Begbick, and Peter Hoare and Willard W. White as her helpers and fellow-fugitives Fatty and Moses.

From the Wings Over America Tour, Rockshow is a 1980 concert film by Wings, filmed during their 1976 North American tour. It features 30 songs from four concerts of the tour: New York, Seattle, Washington and Los Angeles. This was part of the Wings Over the World Tour that also spawned the triple live album Wings Over America. McCartney remained reluctant to make the entire film available to the general public until now. Rockshow will be an event not to be missed by classic rock lovers. The updated version of the film includes a pre-recorded 12-minute interview with Paul McCartney that will be exclusive to Fugard Bioscope audiences.

The Fugard Theatre is proud to be the exclusive South African partner for this once in a lifetime, once-off screening.

From the Bolshoi Ballet. Screened as part of the 2014 & 2015 World Cinema Season.

In Verona, the rivalry between the Capulets and the Montagues brings bloodshed to the city. When the Capulets organise a masked ball in honour of their daughter Juliet, Romeo Montague and his friend Mercutio attend incognito because of the hatred that tears the two houses apart. Romeo and Juliet fall madly in love, and are distraught when they realise they belong to rival families.
 
William Shakespeare’s timeless story, written in 1595, is brought to the stage through breathtaking choreography and Sergei Prokofiev’s much-loved score. With its famous melodies, rhythmic variety and universal theme, this story of impossible love remains an all-time favourite, and is one of the world’s most popular ballets.

Stellar performances by Alexander Volchkov and Anna Nikulina illuminate this masterpiece, making the immortal tale of the lovers of Verona an unforgettable experience.

Screened as part of the Fugard Bioscope National Theatre Encore Season.

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Witness for the Prosecution) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy.

David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight.

Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centre stage.  As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.
