The Baxter is delighted to announce a series of live summer concerts Sun-Set@Baxter, in the garden, from Sunday 28 November 2021 to the end of March 2022. The line-up kicks off with SAMA-nominated, singer Majozi and future artists (like Matthew Mole) will be announced at a later stage. Doors open at 5 pm and the show will commence at 6 pm.

Majozi’s debut single, Fire, was a major pop radio hit and his feel-good follow-up single, Darling, endeared him to local fans. He released his debut full-length album, ‘Fire’, in March 2016 which includes the #1 single, Breathing, as well as the hit collaboration with Tresor, The Woods.

Women of Owu 27 – 30 Oct

The Centre for Theatre, Dance & Performance Studies in collaboration with the Baxter Theatre is proud to present their latest production, Women of Owu. Femi Osofisan’s remarkable Nigerian adaptation of The Trojan Women. It is set in the ancient city of Owu, described by the playwright in the note on the play’s genesis, as a model of prosperity and organization.  In about 1821 the combined armies of two Yoruba kingdoms, Ijebu and Ife along with Oyo refugees recruited as mercenaries, entered Owu after a seven-year siege and sacked the city. In the third year of the siege, the rains stopped, weakening the once formidable city and strengthening the Allied Forces camped on the other side of the city walls. When they entered the city in the seventh year, they raised Owu to the ground, reduced it to rubble, set fire to it and killed all the male inhabitants, capturing the women of Owu as the spoils of war. The play takes place a day after the sacking of the city and in our rendition of this west African adaptation, set in a dystopic African future are the echoes of a timeless lament.  Through their rituals of protest, we come to witness the unspeakable trauma of the Women of Owu, and their tactics of subversion.
