COMMEDIA (article first published : 2000-05-5)

Technikon Natalís department of drama studies will present Commedia at the Standard Bank National Arts Festival in Grahamstown Festival this year. Commedia is a musical revue written by Genbia Hyla (The Abbatoir and People of Heaven) using characters from the popular Italian genre commedia dellíarte (comedy of art).

Commedia takes a raunchy and zany look at the recent period of transformation in South Africa and adds an interesting twist. It will be directed by third-year Technikon-Natal student Bryan Hiles, recently seen in Enemy and The Importance of Being Earnest, and will feature the acting, singing and dancing talents of the third-year class - with a little help from some second-year students.

Commedia will open at the Grahamstown Students Arts Festival in July, before playing at the Technikon's Courtyard Theatre from July 24 to 28.
