Raak

RAAK is the story of a single evening that unfolds into a lifetime shared between a husband and a wife. Their beginning and the beginning of their end. The silent violence of their being like Raak which lingers on. An inherited touch like the head of a springbok hanging on a wall? The search for that which could have been, a hunt for what never was. A carcass toiling in the kitchen to preserve meat and bone, or to let it rot?

 

RAAK was created as part of Kanya Viljoen’s final theatre-making project at the University of Cape Town. The piece runs at 60 minutes and is presented in Afrikaans. RAAK stars Anoecha Kruger as Jana and David Viviers as André.
