J. Bobs‘s new and exciting multi-disciplinary work will showcase a new cultural wave of interactive theatre at the Market Theatre from 25 – 26 May.J. Bobs is an established artist who is known for his popular sketches and a style that allows him to experiment with material that is not mainstream. His new and exciting multi-disciplinary work will showcase a new cultural wave of interactive theatre that is intended to inspire a new generation of artists.
He has chosen the Market Theatre Laboratory as a beneficiary for the premiere of his new work, Sort-Of-Kind-Of-Like-Academic-Ish-Nyana-So-Yabo?
“I recognize the role that the Market Theatre Laboratory plays in empowering and developing young theatre students to harness their craft, skills and talents,” says J Bobs.
The box office proceeds from his show will go towards a bursary to cover a full-time student’s fees for one year.
“It takes true courage and vulnerability to chase your dreams and express your passion to the world. A career in the performance industry can be one of the most daunting realities,” he adds. “I want to play a part in making it a little easier for at least one student.”
J. Bobs Live will premiere his new show at the Ramolao Makhene Theatre, Market Theatre for three days only 25 – 26 May 2019. The production is a bridge between straight theatre and a fascinating multi-disciplinary production that will infuse elements of a game show.
