Description - Theatre as Witness by Yael Farber

`These texts are three flames that burn in the darkness of silence and may speak for countless South Africans whose stories will never be told.' Archbishop Desmond Tutu A Woman in Waiting is based on the life of Thembi Mtshali-Jones, whose life journey has taken her from a childhood of poverty in the rural village of Sabhoza, to Johannesburg where she would become one of South Africa's foremost performers and singers. Amajuba: Like Doves We Rise was developed by Yael Farber with a group of five performers, who drew on memories, dreams and childhood songs to create a vivid depiction of their Apartheid-era experiences. He Left Quietly tells the story of Duma Kumalo who was sentenced to death in 1984 for his alleged participation in the mob killing of a town councillor in Sharpeville - but due to intense international pressure was granted a stay of execution just hours before he was due to be killed.
