TWO of my favourite young actors, TQ Zondi and Mpilo Nzimande, will be performing in Feedback at The Theatre-St Anne’s College at 7.30pm on Friday, October 28.
This Hexagon Theatre production, directed by Peter Mitchell, is a fantastical murder mystery that, in the peculiar logic of playwright Andrew Buckland, becomes a hilarious, poignant, lyrical and quirky piece of physical theatre.
This satirical comedy cunningly explores topics as diverse as food-consciousness and globalisation, and, in the hands of performers TQ and Mpilo, becomes an intense action-packed celebration of humanity and our capacity for greed and altruism.
The actors takes us on a rollercoaster ride as they play scores of characters in this tale of two brothers, a detective, and a host of flying cheeses (amongst other foodstuffs) pitting their wits against the villainous Grave Brothers.
First performed by Buckland and Lionel Newton, who won numerous awards for the show, it has now been given the high-energy off-the-wall treatment by these highly energetic clowns.
The team won a coveted Standard Bank Ovation Award at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown in 2015 for Woza Albert! and the top award at Musho! 2016 for Termite!. TQ and Mpilo were also nominated as best actors at the recent Cape Town Fringe Festival.
