Qaphela Caesar!

Qaphela (Beware) Caesar! is both a warning to Caesar as well as of him. A mixed media work based on Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and installed in several spaces, the production looks at political and personal betrayal within a momentum of rapid, epic change. Part thriller, part dance theatre, part satire this is a work of episodes that examine prophesy, patriotism, ambition, greed and the incessant, dark thirst for power.
qaphela_caesarSeveral spaces, titled variously as a ‘room for conspiracy’ or ‘a room for sex’ or ‘a room of conscience’ mark a narrative within which the battle between Caesar and Brutus, representing the good fight of the past and the expediency of the present, wages. Self conscious of its European root, this interdisciplinary work examines it’s own relationship to a postcolonial world, melding and collapsing time and space - political epochs, memory, the romance of history, and a suspended future.
