South African theatre company - Contagious Theatre, whose work has been enjoyed by audiences both locally and abroad, will be bringing Silkworm to Plett at the Whitehouse Theatre on Saturday, 16 February.

The story is told us to us through the eyes of the at once gregarious and socially awkward Georgina. Georgina is about to have the single most important day of her life. On this day, she takes the audience on a journey that reveals how the small things are, ultimately, big things.

Silkworm makes extensive use of storytelling and clowning techniques borrowed from Italy’s Helikos School of Theatre Creation, adding a dollop of humour and a touch of whimsy. The result is a theatrical experience that explores, pushes, and ultimately punctures the gossamer thin veil that divides the wistfully surreal from the frighteningly real.

Silkworm is directed by Jenine Collocott and stars Taryn Bennett, with additional dramaturgy by Nick Warren.

Tickets available from The Old House Shop / Ann Fermor on 082 452 8764

South African theatre company - Contagious Theatre, whose work has been enjoyed by audiences both locally and abroad, will be bringing Snow Goose to Knysna Montessori Primary School, on the 19th of February.

The critically acclaimed Snow Goose, is a timeless classic based on the Paul Gallico short story of the same name. A chance encounter between a recluse and a young girl blossoms as they nurse an injured wild goose back to health in marshes of Essex in the 1930’s. Their idyllic world is turned upside down as the chaos of war intrudes. With the use of masks, ingenious staging and the performance skills of Taryn Bennett and James Cairns, this is a theatre gem that has enthralled audiences wherever it has visited.
