    THE SMILE

    " The same smile means a dozen different things"

     

    The Smile Hons 14We live in an age of information, and sometimes we think information  is the same as truth. We receive news. We receive data.  We seem to be told everything, but often we know nothing, because knowledge is not about facts but about experience, and experience is untidy, made up of shame, prejudice, pain, exaggeration, and the correction of these things.

    The Smile is a delicious piece of Absurd Theatre that explores the notion of humour in theatre. A space were you can smile, laugh and laugh some more. It questions what makes one smile.

    Directed by Smangaliso Mnguni.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    BLACK WOMEN BOXED

    “They cage us into a word, a definition, a label and that is why we will always be black women boxed”.

     

     

     

    Black Woman Boxed - Hons 14This play tells the story of three black women who each recount their own experiences of being labelled and being put into a box by society, by men and by each other.  Inspired by Brechtian elements, including the use of a chorus and of song, the play explores some of the obstacles that black women face today.   Directed by Terece Swartz
