A Piece by Robyn Orlin
Performed by Phuphuma Love Minus, with Xolisile Bongwana, Vusumuzi Kunene, Ann Masina, Thulani Zwane
Artists around the world are constantly inspired by the beauty, struggles, culture and history of South Africa. Paul Simon’s Graceland introduced its musical roots to the pop culture mainstream. Athol Fugard exposed its dramatic wisdom. Now, another South African auteur is taking the pulse of her country’s complex social reality.
Robyn Orlin is known for work that can be subversive, outrageous, provocatively humorous, and visually arresting. From her early days as a choreographer during the Apartheid era, Orlin has made a career of confronting taboo subjects with a heightened, vaudevillian theatricality that aims to test and redefine ideas about South African performance.
