THE CONDUCT OF LIFE (article first published : 2002-02-21)

Technikon Natal’s Drama Studies department is to opens its 2002 season with the South African premiere of Maria Fornes’ The Conduct of Life directed by Debbie Lutge.

The style of the production is surrealistic and macabre with an austere set design by Wendy Adendorff and a murky atmosphere in the lighting of Tina le Roux. Graphically violent and intensely intimate is the journey for the cast which comprises Denton Douglas, Natasha Hosken, Gulshan Mia, Zipporah Jali, Samantha Wright, Dumi Mqadi, Farla Simon, Tommy Kyd, Wesley Woolf and Sthembiso Mbatha.

Sensitized by issues and concerns raised during the 60’s, the directorial concept turns the production to reflect on gender equity, racial prejudices and gay rights.

The Conduct of Life runs nightly at 19h00 in the Courtyard Theatre, Mansfield Road, from February 23 to March 2. The ticket sales for February 25 will be given to the organisation Men and Women Against Crime.

Please note this is an “adults only” production. Tickets R25 at Computicket.
