(TQ Zondi & Mpilo Nzimande)

The Hexagon Theatre in Pietermaritzburg will present Termite! this weekend on Friday and Saturday (October 30 and 31). Written by Greig Coetzee and directed by Peter Mitchell, it will be performed by TQ Zondi and Mpilo Nzimande.

Can there be anything more delightfully wacky than the combination of the high energy performance style of TQ Zondi and Mpilo Nzimande and Greig Coetzee’s brilliant penmanship?

The delicious and astute Termite! combines physical theatre, satire and a dash of lunacy as it blends traditional folk tales with modern South African life. This fast-paced trilogy of stories tells tales of various animals as they take on Minicab Taxis, Colonel Sanders and try to explain why dogs sniff each other’s behinds! This is satire of the most hilarious and cutting variety.

Fresh from the Hilton Arts Festival, Zondi and Nzimande have made a name for themselves nationally as Ovation Award winners for Woza Albert!, as well as their moving performances in The Island. They are soon to be seen in the annual adult panto in Durban, Aladdin Grey St.

Termite has performances at the Hexagon Theatre on the UKZN Pietermaritzburg campus on October 30 and 31 at 18h00. Tickets R60/40 booked on
