The Sights & Sounds of Sandscape

The cast of Sandscape delight audiences of all ages with curiosity, play and sand.

The beautifully playful production, Sandscape, was incubated within the training programmes of Magnet Theatre (South Africa). The production was a truly international initiative, having been supported by the Goethe-Institut and Helios Theater (Germany), and with trainee participants joining the production from Nigeria and Zimbabwe.

 

The cast of four Actors (Joy Princess Akrah, Joshua Ademola Alabi, Lloyd Nyikadzino and Chipo Precious Basapo) took the time to speak with me about the joyfulness that Theatre can offer. You can listen to our conversation, interspersed with reactions from the audience, in the audio podcast (9 minutes) below:
