Talk: Phefumla

Ettersnakk / Talk
14. september
19.00 – 20.00
Aladdin Blå / Aladdin Blue

The performance Phefumla, which is part of this year’s festival programme, is developed through a devised process with four young men from the township areas surrounding Cape Town. All four have been involved or affected by the gang culture that rules the streets. In addition to showing glimpses and fragments from the performers’ lives, the production is also part of an existential struggle that young people in townships grow up with, and have to deal with on an everyday basis. In the seminar we meet director Thando Doni, Mariken Lauvstad, and the four performers.
The talk is moderated by Mariken Lauvstad.
