The Vukallective brought you Era and AVU (Fresh Fringe Nominee 2016) last year at the Cape Town Fringe. This year their production Let’s Eat Hair blurs the boundaries between dance, theatre and performance. A multidisciplinary production that’s life was cut short after winning the award for Best Upcoming Young Artist at the Vrystaat Arts Festival back in 2015 due to injury and personal loss. The production is a rollicking, absurdist, word-fest by Carl Laszlo written in 1956. In this new adaptation the dialogue is coupled with post-modern dance and a fresh interpretation of the text creates a new story that contemporary South African Audiences can relate to. The themes that are explored are of societal pressure, gender stereotypes and the need to break free from convention.
