At the beginning of 2019, the UCT Centre for Theatre, Dance & Performance Studies, generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, embarked on an exciting 5-year research project on Re-imagining Tragedy from Africa and the Global South. Part of the project involves the making of four new ‘tragedies’ together with our partners at Magnet Theatre and The Baxter. This production is the first. The tragedy of the aftermath and the aftermath of tragedy.
