EPISODES OF AFRICA (article first published : 2006-03-13)

The second leg of the Playhouse Company's current season of New Stages features Episodes of Africa in the Playhouse Loft. This musical theatre production by the Gauteng based Lubikha Theatre Project depicts the wide spectrum of customs and cultures we share in Africa.

Directed by Michael Lubisi and choreographed by Sesi Margarate Moloi, Episodes of Africa premiered in Gauteng at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002. Other LTP shows in Gauteng and elsewhere have included Silent Killer, an AIDS awareness drama; The Reflections, an educational forum theatre piece; Intsholo a musical play celebrating music and dance as language; The Lost Generation focusing on youth education; and The Shadows of Pain, a child abuse awareness production.

Episodes of Africa offers a vibrant cultural celebration explored through exuberant dance sequences. The show incorporates elements of Isicathamiya, contemporary dance and African ballads linked with narration.

The narrator is Mziwoxolo Phillemon Noah, the drummer is Bright Mathonsi, and casting includes Malihlohonolo Taolana, Tshepiso Elsie Mogoebo, Emmorencia Ndlovu, Thulile Mntungwa, Xoliswa Madikane,Vincent Sibiya, Patrick Oupa Mdlalose, Themba Madonsela and David Samuel Mogomotsi.
