Fresh from winning the Blue Couch Award at the KykNET Fiestas for producing the most ground-breaking work of 2015, Underground Dance Theatre are back with their latest genre-bending production.

Pulp begins in a hazy dream, a silent movie where bodies hide secrets. Combining film noir and dance theatre, mysterious beauty, dark comedy, and seat-shifting discomfort all co-exist within this intimate work that follows the peculiar logic of dream.

Like the iconic film noir private detective navigating a morally ambiguous, labyrinthine city populated by ingénues, criminals and femme fatales, so must the audience navigate the world that is presented to them in Pulp, searching for clues, gathering evidence, and perhaps preparing an alibi as they deal with their own demons.

Pulp stars Steven van Wyk (Fleur du Cap 2016 nominee for Best Actor in a Musical for Singin’ in the Rain), as well as Thalia Laric and Cilna Katzke (Cape Town City Ballet, iKapa).

“This is our most intriguing work yet,” says co-creator Steven van Wyk. “It also references jazz dance, musicals and is a pastiche of film noir history. Pulp is a world that’s dark, delicious, dangerous and very exciting - come share the journey with us.”V Pulp will be performed at The Rosebank Theatre until Saturday 16 July at 20:00 with a matinees at 15:00 on Saturday 16 July. Tickets cost R100 from The show then moves to The Galloway Theatre at 20:00 from Wednesday 20 to Saturday 23 July where tickets cost between R90 and R120 from Visit for more.
