LAUNCH OF COMEDY THEATRE LABORATORY (article first published : 2008-07-17)

The Bat Café will host a comedy theatre laboratory every Wednesday with the launch on July 23, 2008. Veteran stage and television personality Vivian Moodley, said that this was an initiative to provide a stage for new works from up and coming writers and performers. A panel consisting of seasoned performance arts practitioners would sit in on these shows and thereafter hold discussions with the actors, writers and directors. This exercise is designed to assist in developing new productions to enable them to be moved onto professional stages on the mainstream circuit.

The Bat Café would be transformed into an intimate theatre space every Wednesday night to accommodate a total of 50 people. For this reason, patrons are requested to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

"The Bat Centre has been the home of arts expression over decades and practitioners from the most disadvantaged sectors of our community have in the past benefited from its initiatives,” say the organisers. “In keeping with that tradition, the Comedy Theatre Lab seeks to provide a platform for emerging and established artists. We encourage creators of new work to use this opportunity."

To qualify for your chillie bites, cuppa chai and comedy you have to make early reservations at a cost of R40. Bookings through 031 332 0451 (office hours); 031 202 5383 (after hours) or 084 760 1096 or email: enactviv@webmail.co.za
