Farber : Plays One, Paperback / softback Book

Farber : Plays One Paperback / softback

Description

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.
