oa Communicare : Journal for Communication Sciences in Southern Africa - Cabaret as new journalism: an exploratory discourse

Volume 11, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0259-0069



In this paper the author attempts to extrapolate Bouwer's argument (Bouwer:1990) of cabaret as alternative discourse even further, and seeks to construct an exploratory argument that a measure of cabaret texts may be sufficiently journalistic in style and structure to be considered so-called New Journalism. The author seeks a common ground between cabaret and New Journalism by defining and tracing the historical development of both phenomena.
