“South Africa is an extraordinary country in so many ways,” wrote director Yael Farber at Broadway.com. “Indeed, the relatively peaceful transition from almost half a century of brutal oppression to democracy was nothing short of miraculous. Yet beneath the hype of a country reborn lies the dark current of consequence... The flexibility with which the survivors of these years have had to rise to embrace the ‘new’ South Africa inspired the world, but left little time for looking back to reclaim the emotional shrapnel left from those dark years. Amajuba is our attempt to do just that”
After a multi-year tour to sell-out crowds at international venues, The Farber Foundry’s Amajuba: Like Doves We Rise, a stirring theatrical performance based on the experiences of its cast, makes its final stop at the Walker February 22–25, and to mark its conclusion, Farber visits Minneapolis to oversee this historic run. For a great primer on Farber and Amajuba, listen to this excellent NPR piece from July.
