Catch Matchbox Theatre Collective’s ‘Burn’ at the Theatre – St Anne’s College


Mark Tatham (back) and Daniel Geddes will be appearing in Burn at the Theatre – St Anne’s College.

The Theatre at St Anne’s College in Hilton is hosting a performance of the award-winning production, Burn, choreographed and directed by Standard Bank Young Artist for Dance (2012) Bailey Snyman, and featuring Daniel Geddes and Mark Tatham, on Thursday, February 2 at 7.30pm.

Winner of a Standard Bank Ovation Award at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown last year, Burn explores the tense relationship between Earth and Man, and how the two hold each other ransom.

There is no fate but what we make for ourselves. This epic tale is about man’s discovery of the world he inhabits and the consequences of his unprecedented failure to preserve this relationship. Two men navigate the creation myth, the art of war and the desolation of post-apocalyptic destruction.

Inspired in part by Fire on the Mountain by Arthur Golding, fire represents a tool that separates humankind from the animals, and represents both savagery and hope. Burn walks the tenuous line between the past, present and future of our collective history with fire. It results in an explosive conclusion that comments on the visible effects of our inability to preserve our precious resources.

Tickets are R70 (R50 concessions). Book at 033 343 6100 or
