Tembisa is the home and birthplace of many of the country’s most celebrated artists.
The entertainment industry has suffered tremendous financial loss during the COVID-19 pandemic, with the lockdown and regulations around audience numbers putting a stop to many performing artists’ paycheques.
Mxolisi Masilela, the Founder and Artistic Director of the “TX Theatre” at the Moses Molelekwa Arts Centre in Tembisa, spoke to Unathi about the annual “Tembisa Theatre Festival,” which seeks to celebrate township theatre in the authentic setting of the townships that birthed the artists and the stories they have to tell.
On Sunday, 21 February, The TX Theatre opened its doors to the public for the first time after the shocking curve ball COVID-19 threw onto Artists & the Industry at large almost a year ago.
The show ‘In that Sight, Side, Site’ is about a man who is longing for something other than what he knows or has been taught in the past. It seems like he is searching for something he has never encountered, but he knows that his current state will continue to drain him if he does not move.
Get your ticket today to “In that Sight, Side, and Site,” which will perform again for the closing of Tembisa Theatre Week on Sunday, 28 February.
