The Kamer de Eendracht ("room of unity") was a Cape Town based arts association.

Also referred to simply as De Eendracht.


The association was formed as a dissident group in 1887, when internal strife arose in the well-known rederijkerskamer Aurora II. De Eendracht served as a transitional amateur theatre organization in Cape Town, performing under the motto "Door Oefening wordt de kunst verkregen" ("art is attained through practice") till 1883.

The leading figure was P. Faddegon, supported by J. Combrink, with other members including G. Wanneburg, Mr Van de Cappelle, J. Hemmes, Mr Veldhuisen, Mr Siebolds, Miss Van Spoor, Anna Valois and Miss Beersma.


The company presented its first production on 4 April 1876 in the Athenaeum Hall, Cape Town, performing Eleonore van Rosalba, of De Puinhopen van Paluzzi (Pujos and Dabaytua) and De Twee Vrijers, of Liefde en List (Anon.).

Other plays performed in 1876 include


F.C.L. Bosman. 1980. Drama en Toneel in Suid-Afrika, Deel II, 1856-1912. Pretoria: J.L. van Schaik: pp. 42, 441, 448-451, 461, 470.
