Attention Durban artists: stage actresses and actors.

Well-known Durban actor and director Menzi Mkhwane will be holding auditions on Friday (August 23, 2019)

“This is for an animal theatre piece, a two-hander which I will perform with an actor, “he explains. “I will train and cast to perform in this specific style. (Moving and performing like animals).

"The show is called Ingonyama and I will be using my animal theatre training which I learnt in Horn Of Sorrow to perform the work with the performer.

“Actor must be fluent in IsiZulu and English. Must be able to sing and also move reasonably well with their bodies. If that is not you, this is not the audition for you!” he adds.

Audition will involve a lot of physical theatre!

The play is for a young audiences - it's a Children's theatre piece.

“If you have been dying to work and share the stage with me please email me on

“Send me your CV. As well as RSVP-ing your slot for Friday. Also email me your number so we can confirm your slot on the day. I'd love to see new actors and familiar faces there,” says Mkhwane.
