WAITING (article first published : 2005-08-1)

The Stable Theatre will present Waiting directed and choreographed by well-known Durbanites Vukani Dlamini and Sipho Kunene of Sarafina Musical and the movie fame. Sipho played guitar in the movie under the tutelage of Mbongeni Ngema.

Both Vukani and Sipho are seasoned theatre directors who have toured the world with Mbongeni Ngema productions such as Asinamali, Mama, Magic at 4am and a music group called Durban Dust. They are also the founder members of kwaito groups Vibe Lezinto and Jojavu.

Waiting is a combination of vibrant and energetic dance incorporating a wide variety of dance tastes from other indigenous South African cultures. It is also an edutainment musical that stresses the importance of abstinence and “waiting” for the right time for conjugal engagements.

The production also aims to fight the stigma attached to being infected by the AIDS virus as well as advocating support and love by family and friends of those affected.

Sipho Kunene plays the main character who is also a Sipho while Vukani plays the Captain. The show includes beautiful background music played by renowned artists such as Sipho Gumede, Busi Mhlongo and others.

Waiting runs at The Stable Theatre in Alice Street from August 2 to 7. More information and bookings on 031 309 2513.
