See The Paarl Taalmonument On Fire With The Psychedelic Theatre
Pack a picnic to enjoy with family and watch awe-inspiring fire tricks and choreography
If you're looking for a spectacular induction into the end-of-year period, The Psychedelic Theatre has you covered. Join them for Dans van die Vlamme (or Picnic on Fire) at the Afrikaans Language Monument in Paarl on 28 December.
LET'S SET 2019 ON FIRE
The Psychedelic Theatre was founded in 2010 by dancer and actress Lanél van der Kolff, and has been dazzling audiences ever since with daring tricks and choreography. They're all about turning fantasy into reality, using specially designed soundscapes, beautiful costumes and weirdly wonderful props like fire pois (balls of wicker attached to chains which they set alight) and blazing hula hoops.
PICNIC IN THE LIGHT OF FIRE
For one night, the Psychedelic Theatre is performing at the Afrikaans Language Monument in Paarl. The entertainment starts at 8:30pm, but doors open at 5pm. Patrons are encouraged to pack blankets or pillows, as chairs aren't allowed in the Garden Theatre. You can also bring a picnic and your own drinks (no glass, though), or pre-order a picnic from the coffee shop for R300 for 2 people (R400 if you want it to come in a basket). Order at +27 (0)21 863 2800. The coffee shop will also be open in the evening, serving coffee, light refreshments and pizza.
