Concordia Societeit

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Concordia Societeit (Literally: "African Society") was a social club which acted as a centre for amusements including balls, card-playing, races as well as theatrical entertainments between 1797 to 1810.

It may thus have been used for French performances in 1805 , for there is a report in the Kaapsche Courant en Afrikaansche Berigter of 14 December, 1805, that a "Théâtre du Société" (correctly: Théâtre de la Société) was used for a benefit performance held for Charles Mathurin Villet by Les Amateurs de l'Isle de France.
