Denver Breda's play 'Rokkie' at Suidoosterfees

Equally ridiculed and celebrated in our communities for their perceived flamboyance, while also in many straight circles accepted with a bit of confused caution, almost everyone on the Cape Flats knows someone who is stereotypically described as a "Kaapse Moffie" but seldom the stories of transgender persons are told from the point of view of and as the main character in a theatrical play.

Cape Flats actress, Denise Newman isn’t just a ‘trained actress’, of stage, film and screen. This Cape Flats actress is a performer with a consciousness that never betrays freedom, justice, humanity. It’s no wonder then that scripting a life story and performing it live, about legendary anti-apartheid activist, Dulcie September would be undertaken in her lifetime of bold, dazzling and deep theatrical performances.

‘Cold Case’, which premiers at the National Arts festival in Grahamstown, is not just another story about another human life. It’s a stage production about a woman who gave her lifetime for freedom of oppressed South Africans and who never got the chance to smile when freedom day dawned and ushered in the democratic society.
