About

As Sir Winston Churchill says, “Those who do not look far back will not be able to look far forward.” This play engages with artifacts and shows glimpses of South African history through the eyes of a sculpture. After being frozen in time for all those years, this sculpture cannot bare to see how people have progressed. By constantly showing her newly made friends old buildings, she hopes to carry on the legacy of our forebearers. As William Fehr says, after quoting Sir Churchill, “without the knowledge of the efforts of our forebearers and the sacrifices they made to build up the country…we cannot form a balanced judgement of how to safeguard for ourselves and our children.” Will you keep hushing the truth?

 


Sir Winston Churchill het gesê, “hulle wat nie ver terugkyk nie, sal nie in staat wees om ver vooruit te kuik nie.” Hierdie toneelstuk toon ‘n blik op die Suid-Afrikaanse geskiedenis deur middle van artifakte en die oë van ‘n spesifieke beeldhoudwerk. Na ‘n leeftyd van gevries wees, kan sy dit nie verdra in te sien waantoe die mensdom ontwikkel het nie. Deur voortderund ou geboue aan haar nuutgemaakte vriende te wys, hoop sy om die nalatenskap can haar voorouers voort te sit. Soos William Fehr sê, na aanhaling van Sir Churchill, “sonder die kennis van die pogings van ons voorgeslagte en die opofferings wat hulle gemaak het om die land op te bou…kan ons nie ‘n gebalanseerde oordeel vorm oor hoe ons vir ons en ons kinders jan beskerm nie.” Gaan jy aanhou om die waarheid te verdoof?
