Moving Acts Productions presents ZEMQADINI as part of the KIPPIES FRINGE PROGRAMME

ZemQadini is about a friendship that is glued by the aftermath of a tribal war in a small village in KwaZulu- Natal, these friends rely on each other to navigate the obscure and surreal reality they have or had.  It is a sensitive yet comical blend of memory and trauma, exploring disability, and heroism through a marriage of physical performance and Oral storytelling. Focusing on two friends one mute, one blind yet still bonded by memories and wounding dreams. This play explores and questions the idea of what remains after the war, and what kind of memory that carries on to historical archives.

Written by Sboniso Msimango, under the direction of Philisiwe Twijnstra, with Thamsanqa Khumalo as both AD and stage manager; the featured cast is Bongani Mbatha and Bhekani Shabalala.
