UFS Drama Department production exempted at ABSA KKNK
2006-04-19

 Lecturers and students of the Department Drama & Theatre Arts have taken five productions to the ABSA KKNK 2005. The productions were well received by audiences.

 

The daily newspaper, Die Burger, exempted the classic Molière drama, Ipekonders, which was translated and directed by Nico Luwes. According to the newspaper Gerben Kamper as the hipochonder Argon receives full marks for his performance. “Dis heerlik om te sien en ontdek dat goeie humor ná drie eeue steeds snaaks bly. En dat ’n toeganklike klug ook skerp sosiale kommentaar kan lewer...Volpunte vir Gerben Kamper (as die hipochonder Argon) en sy medespelers. Ons leef vandag nie in ’n minder hipochondriese kultuur nie, en die ‘dr.-God-sindroom’ is nog met ons. Gaan van ons diagnoses en behandelings straks eendag net so lagwekkend wees soos destyds se purgasies, klismas en bloedlatings?”

 

Michelle Luwes’s Daars Vis Innie Punch was well received by audiences. The festival paper, Krit, reported that she tried her best to adapt the book by Jacky Nagtegaal  to a cabaret.

 

The three children’s productions, Hansie en Grietjie, Rooikappie en die Wolf and Cleopatra in Egypt were popular amongst young audiences.
