MINE GHOSTS EXTRAVAGANZA (article first published : 2003-02-22)

Durban’s Director Jerry Pooe is back from the US with a new music and dance extravaganza – Mine Ghosts to be staged at the Playhouse Loft Theatre from March 17 to 23.

Pooe’s story in Mine Ghosts tells of an old man hunted by his memories of the life he lived working in the mines. Now worked out and about to be closed, the mine is too much a part of the old man’s existence for him to give it up. He hides in the mine, only to meet the many ghosts, which haunt it. Man and ghosts form a bond and together they re-live the days of their youth.

It is told through music and dance extravaganza with acappella music and more than 20 gumboot dance routines with mixture of vibrant cultural dances. A cast of 12 Eager Artists performers who appeared in Jerry’s musical Ekhaya Poppie which was nominated for the FNB Vita Award Best Musical Play is set to wow the Durban audiences with their young energetic talents.

Pooe’s Eager Artists has just finished a two months successful USA tour which took in three different states of America – Michigan, Buffalo, and Minnesota.

Mine Ghosts Extravaganza is made possible by the National Arts Council and the Playhouse Company. Book at Computicket.
