A Play to inform on how to build houses using earth bricks
2006-03-17

About 3200 learners and members of the community attended a play at schools in Botshabelo and Thaba Nchu.  The play, performed to teach communities how to build houses using earth bricks, was developed by the University of the Free State's (UFS) Departments of Architecture and Urban and Regional Planning.  These department have been researching the perception of the use of earth bricks as building material for the past two years.  The project is done in cooperation with the Technical University of Eindhoven and funded by the South African - Netherlands Research Programme on Alternatives in Development (SANPAD).  The play was also performed at schools in the Northern Cape.
 

 

 

The play, written by Mr David Brink from Stage Alive, was performed in Sesotho and Tswana by two students - Galie Malebo and Godfrey Manenye - from the UFS.  Here the play is performed at the Dibeng-Sa Tsebo School.
