Dance of the La Gumas

April 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm SAST

R80

Apartheid carved a hole in the heart of South African literature. Alex La Guma strides into that gap with the force of a Colossus. But who was this literary genius who was hounded, tortured and driven from his home country? Who won countless awards all over the world? Who lies buried in the Heroes Acre of a Cuban cemetery. Dance of the La Gumas Revolution, Rumba & Romance – starring Rehane Abrahams and Elton Landrew – tells the remarkable story of a heritage that was almost buried by the bannings and exile of the apartheid state. The tentacles of that brutality reach right into our lives in the 21st Century. The vivid memories, evocative stories and harrowing experiences of La Guma’s writing are brought to life with elegance and style by playwrights Sylvia Vollenhoven and Basil Appollis. Throughout this compelling tale is a powerful love story that combines the gentility of dance or poetry, brutal torture and exotic global adventures with equal ease.

Please Note: No late comers will be allowed entrance into the Arena auditourium.
