"TAAC to me is like reading an old comic book. It is read by a lot of people but feels like it was made just for you."

The Crime Scene
Written and Directed by Zuko Sikhafungana
R70 | R50 Student concession
The Crime Scene is a play that aims to break the silence and create dialogue through storytelling. The performance follows a psychological cycle of absent fathers which results in hatred and a furious society, producing violent, angry young minds. Mothers face the consequences in isolation. One man relives the tale, a life of a dismantled family. "This boy pose a very dangerous treat to society at large. And we as this community must make a practical example with him, its either we burn this thing or we stone him to death!"

Lomzimba Uyabhidla, loosely translated as 'this body ooze', is an English/isiXhosa production devised by Brett IIsley, Kwindla Anthony and Nasfa Ncanywa and directed by Nasfa Ncanywa. The play explores the trauma of apartheid that continues to haunt us and the impact that it has on our bodies and way of being in the world. How do we move forward in a world that is advancing, whilst we carry the wounds of the past? The play is set in the Eastern Cape in a small house belonging to a grandmother whose granddaughter has been away to study in London. The return is a realisation that our new Democracy is archived on our bodies - both black and white - and questions if it is working for black people and their culture, or if it is maintaining white supremacy through Western forms to advance peace.
28th & 29th November @ 8pm

Domination is our expression of how the lives of non-whites have been affected over the last few centuries right up until today, because of the colonial system, our traditional leaders and currently our corrupt political leaders. Not much has changed for the majority of the population. This piece reflects the pain we are still going through but with the hope that we will achieve soon the “rainbow nation” promised to us.
Performed by Lubabalo Pupu, Mbulelo Mzazi, Sandisile Madama, Noxolo Magadla and Bongani Vellem.
