This production of The Firebird, directed by Janni Younge and choreographed by Jay Pather, is a puppet and dance performance set to Stravinsky’s original score. Janni Younge’s Firebird draws on the symbolism and dramaturgy of Fokine’s original choreography (based on figures from Russian folklore) and reinterprets them in a contemporary South African setting, using larger-than-life puppets and African dance forms.

Anywhere is a wander in the footsteps of Oedipus on the road to Henry Bauchau, a visual poem that invites the viewer to live through the different states of the element Water, the inner metamorphosis of a mythical character. Oedipus, ice puppet gradually turns into water to disappear in the mist. His daughter, Antigone, accompanies him, supports him and assists, confident, to his disappearance.
