The Fugard Theatre`s DISTRICT SIX - KANALA created and directed by David Kramer returns for a second season!

Eric Abraham and the Fugard Theatre presents a musical tribute - DISTRICT SIX - KANALA created and directed by David Kramer - to mark the 50th anniversary of the destruction of District Six.

On the 11th of February 1966 District Six was declared a white group area. Over 60,000 people were relocated. A way of life was destroyed. Fifty years have passed and today hardly anything remains of what was once a thriving, densely populated, multi-ethnic and multi-cultural community.

The Fugard Theatre, located in District Six, is paying homage to what was once District Six - the place and its people.

The show had its Premiere on the 11th of February 2016, precisely 50 years after the declaration of 1966.

David Kramer, who together with his partner the late Taliep Petersen created the hugely successful musicals - District Six, Fairyland and Kat and the Kings, are celebrating the vibrant musical culture that was to be found in the streets, halls, hotels, clubs and bioscopes of 1960`s District Six.

"Kanala is my way of celebrating the memory of some of the amazing talents from District Six that I met and worked with over the past three decades. People like Taliep Petersen, Salie Daniels, Cyril Valentine, Billy Jaftha, Dougie Schrikker, Al Hendricks, Zayn Adam as well as Richard Rive and Vincent Kolbe. These were all friends who shared their vivid recollections of place and people with me" said Kramer.

The eight performers are being accompanied by a six-piece live band under the of guidance of musical director Alistair Izobell.
