Last night, I had the privilege of seeing one of Canadian Stage’s productions for their Spotlight on South Africa.
In it’s second week and running until April 25th at the Berkeley Theatre and the Bluma Appel theatre. I saw the play “Hatched”, a mostly silent piece, starring Mamela Nyamza, a beautiful and powerful dancer. I’ve mentioned it before, maybe it comes from my very brief appearances on stage, I’m always so impressed with performances. In this movement piece, Nyamza shows her strength through dance and movements. It was interesting to watch the story be told without many words. The piece features two dance pieces about her body and cultural ethos.
The festival features a number of plays over the next couple of weeks, tickets start at $25 and with three shows, you can get 20% off regular prices.
