Wellington . . . in Liverpool

Jeremeo le Cordeur of Wellington is one of two artists representing Artscape and South Africa as ambassadors in the European Voluntary Service Exchange Programme, which takes place from May to August in Liverpool, England.

Artscape Theatre Centre, in partnership with Brouhaha International, recruited Le Cordeur and Chenal Kock from Mitchell’s Plain to participate in the exchange programme.

Brouhaha International delivers an annual programme of events and community celebrations, culminating in its flagship international street festival. It brings people together from various countries, including, America, Brazil, Trinidad, Zambia, Cuba and South Africa.

Through the programme Le Cordeur will be exposed to a programme of events and celebrations set to enhance his current skills.

He will also be involved in collaborative performance projects, community activities and the creation of new work as well as exchange and sharing of skills, challenges and insights, and have the opportunity to lead workshops in Liverpool’s chosen communities.

“It is a privilege to be able to represent the Artscape Theatre Centre within this European Voluntary Service programme,” he says. “This will provide me with the opportunity to create good standing relationships as well as develop and explore work that transcends conventional boundaries. I really hope to contribute all my skills to whatever project or venture we may undertake and make use of the opportunity to learn from others, so I can return to South Africa with a greater understanding of the industry and what is required of me to make future endeavours succeed.”

Le Cordeur, a former learner of Berg River Secondary School, describes himself as an actor, director, writer, and photographer.

He is also the entrepreneur behind Vulture Productions, an independent production and design platform encouraging the creation of original South African works.

“I love creating stories and characters and the world that they exist in. I am also fascinated by the role of theatre in inspiring and empowering my community,” he said.

According to Le Cordeur thís is what sparked the creation of Vultures Productions in 2010.

In 2016 he also started The Vulture Photography Project, an arts photography project aimed at showcasing the work of South African theatre practitioners. Through Vulture Productions, Le Cordeur also guides the work of other artists, ensuring that whatever contributions they receive is well spent on fostering the talents of their contemporaries in the field of performing arts in South Africa.

In 2009, he joined Fresh Theatre Company, a presenting company specialising in musical theatre, where he performed in Life is Rock n Roll, Love in Cyberspace and Pinocchio.

Le Cordeur has been at the helm of many successful productions such as Pizza’s Here (2011), I know how you screamed last Scary Movie (2011), and Risk for the 2012 & 2013 National Arts Festival.

In 2013 he returned to the Artscape with February 14th. This production received rave reviews.

In 2014 Le Cordeur directed Tannie Dora Goes Bos, a play written by Warren Meyer, which opened to rave reviews and was later included as part of Artscape’s 8th annual Women/Humanity Festival.
