Meshack Mavuso and Mpho “Mckenzie” Matome lead a strong cast of 20 that unleashes a blow by blow account of the events that led to the loss of 44 lives at the hands of the police and the miners. Marikana - The Musical will also go back to the villages and townships where they came from and give faces and names to the fallen brothers, sons, fathers and uncles. Twenty years into our democracy, can we say that we are a tolerant society if we can lose so many lives at our own hands? The killing did not start on the day of the shooting and after it started it spread like wildfire and “Tomorrow morning, the men will sing again. Their spears, pangas, inculas and sticks will clatter menacingly. They will recite battle cries from their homelands, and move about in organized columns, raising clouds of dust. But 34 of them will sing for the very last time”. Director: Aubrey Sekhabi, Set & Lighting Designer: Wilhelm Disbergen, Costume Designer: Irene Mathe, Cast: Meshackmavuso, Mpho”Mckenzie”Matome, Emma Mmekwa And Chorus, Choreographer: Thabo Rapoo, Stage Manager: Sechaba Fanampe, Ass Stage Manager: Simon Makam, Age Restriction: 13 LV
