‘Making Mandela’ – written by Nick Warren and Jenine Collocott, directed by Jenine Collocott “Soars with clean narrative lines, superb physical theatre, humour and pathos … will wow not only festival goers, but the world.” – Robyn Sassen, The Arts at Large.
An imaginative journey through the childhood of Nelson Mandela featuring colourful characters, vividly portrayed in beautiful masks, with physical performances supported by emotive sound design and theatrical styling. This is the story of what influenced the rural boy to become the global legend.
Making Mandela will be at the National Arts Festival in 2015 under the auspices of ASSITEJ. I wish I were going to the National Arts Festival so that I could see this piece of theatre.
