Welcome to Kakfontein, where the kingdom lies in ruins. In The Last King of Kakfontein, Boyzie Cekwana reacts to the rise of populist rulers in his native South Africa and in the rest of the world. This is a reflection on a world in flux, that is being destroyed by a dearth of ideas.

What is theatre? What do emotions and history signify on the stage? Faustin Linyekula shows his personal perspective on the history of dance and theatre in Africa. To what extent does the past define the present and even the future? Accompanied by music by Ray Lema, he challenges the basic techniques of “real theatre”.
