GRAHAMSTOWN - WINTER SCHOOL (article first published : 1999-06-27)

The Standard Bank National Arts Festivalís Winter School places a strong focus on renowned and celebrated South African playwright Athol Fugard.

In Focus on Fugard, three international scholars assess Fugardís achievements and examine the general trends in drama. In Witness of the Past? A Revaluation of the Work of Athol Fugard, internationally renowned scholar and expert on Fugardís work, Dr Dennis Walder, will contemplate how far and on what terms, Fugard's work continues to challenge today's audiences. Dr Walder chairs the Department of Literature at the Open University in the UK and has published numerous articles and books on 19th and 20th century literature.

Lessons from the Margins: Identity Politics from and beyond Fugard on the South African Stage traces South African theatre over the past 25 years, Athol Fugard's influences and the new theatre in South Africa and Europe. This lecture will be presented by contemporary theatre specialist, Dr Marcia Blumberg, visiting Research Fellow from Open University.

Professor Jeanne Colleran discusses theatre works produced in a post-revolutionary/reconciliation period by Athol Fugard, Irish playwright Brian Friel and American dramatists Tony Kushner, August Wilson and Jon Robin Baitz. Professor Colleran chairs the Department of English at John Carroll University in Ohio, USA.
