'It is impossible to come away from RAM or Mies Julie without feeling that the world must change; Molora points the way. Yaël Farber's theatre will leave no participant unmoved.'Ingrid Rowland, from her introduction
Molora In this reworking of Aeschylus' Oresteia, Klytemnestra and Elektra face one another in a dramatic confrontation. Attempts to come to terms with their violent past echo testimonies delivered in Apartheid's wake throughout South Africa during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
RAM: The Abduction of Sita into Darkness Farber's potent revisioning of this age-old text is a raw and probing contemporary work which places the loss of the Feminine Divine, and thus our lack of spiritual and moral equilibrium, at its
visceral core. This is a Ramayana for a new world.
Mies Julie Transposed to a post-apartheid kitchen - a single night, both brutal and tender, unfolds between a black farm-labourer, the daughter of his master and the woman who has raised them both. The visceral struggles of contemporary South Africa are laid bare, as John and Mies Julie spiral in a deadly battle over power, sexuality, mothers and memory.To view this DRM protected ebook on your desktop or laptop you will need to have Adobe Digital Editions installed.
