VUKALLECTIVE ARCHIVE 

Since 2014 the Vukallective has been creating work that blends together high concepts that are accessible and commercial while maintaining their artistic integrity.

You can view our projects in Chronological order below where we work to ensure that every single person, animal and entity we have worked with receives credit. We only house projects we had a part in producing. Marketing projects can be viewed on Instagram. 

We are currently working on various online projects during the COVID - 19 pandemic. We will return to our first love of theatre in 2022.

In a forgotten corner in one 2nd-tier city, there is a small, macabre establishment that allows Consumers to experience reality with some of the last remaining Afrikaners dating back to the early period when the autonomous region of Nánfei was invaded by the enemy, who has always been the enemy and will always remain the enemy of The Party. These Afrikaners and their identity are on display for your enjoyment and pleasure. Let them fulfil every need you have, just remember what goes around comes around.

The colours of light are infinite through refraction, yet they all come from the same source. This is a calling to which I have been led. I am subservient to this profession; thus, I cannot detach myself from the most wicked soul. I must maintain the dignity of my profession, yet I cannot fail to identify with the most virtuous soul. The moment I feel sorry, I am of no assistance. Who am I?

A dance theatre production by Mark Antony Dobson and Motlatsi Moeketsi Khotle, "Thirst" blends together theatre, dance and performance in one of the most anticipated productions of 2018.

As part of the PACOFS and The Department of Arts & Culture Incubator programme, one of the most successful emerging artist programmes in the country, this latest offering from the dance division at PACOFS sees many familiar faces from previous Incubator intakes come together to create a theatre experience that combines all the new and innovative work artists in Bloemfontein have to offer.

A rollicking, absurdist piece written by Carl Lazlo in 1956. A fresh interpretation of the text combined with post-modern dance, live music and fine arts creates a new story that contemporary South African audiences can relate to. The themes explored are of societal pressure, gender stereotypes and the need to break free from convention.

In the beginning, God created the earth. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. Then God said: “Let us make a deer in our image, in our likeness…So God created the deer. He formed a deer from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the
breath of life and the deer became alive.
