Ismail Mahomed - 2011-05-31

Take the duration of the Festival, divide it into 3 blocks and you get: A Standard bank Young Artist performer in each block. 3 war plays: Somewhere on the Border, Sadako, Iris Brunette, in each block. 3 plays set in a school: Shakespeare's...

Brief van Deon Opperman: Hoekom 'n musiekblyspel oor die Grensoorlog
Deon Opperman - 2011-05-19
Twee jaar gelede het ek die Boereoorlog-musiekspel Ons vir jou in die Staatsteater aangebied. Ek is deur baie mense aangeval omdat ek ’n musiekspel oor daardie oorlog juis op “hierdie tyd” (soos hulle dit gestel het) aangebied het, en daardie kritiek deur mense wat nog nie eers die stuk gesien het nie! My posisie was: hierdie is my volk se geskiedenis, en as ons nie die reg het om ons verlede te onthou nie, hoe sal ons weet wie ons nou is, en hoe sal ons ons toekoms kan droom? Uiteinde...
