To describe roller derby simply as a sport is to overlook its political, cultural and social aspects.
The Cape Town Rollergirls are known for their flaunting of gender and social norms. They’re strong, brutal and competitive but they are also flagrantly sexy. Catch the girls in a rare submissive mode when they serve cocktails on wheels and spin appropriately retro tunes at the Cape Town Rollergirls Derby Diner.
Market at the Palms, 145 Sir Lowry Road, Woodstock.
Date & Time:
February 9 to March 16.
