On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Ayanda Bulose about Lord of the Flies at UJ Arts Centre.
A testament to UJ Arts & Culture’s commitment to the development and transfer of skills, Ayanda Bulose will make his directorial debut with the classic allegory Lord of the flies. After a number of years honing his skills as a director, Bulose will head up a fierce team of UJ Arts & Culture’s Arts Academy students to bring this tale of fear and power to life. “It’s has been an exhilarating experience breathing life into an epic classic such Lord of the flies,” says Bulose.
“It has been a wonderful journey producing Lord of the flies over the past six months that I have been at UJ Arts & Culture. We have an incredibly talented creative team comprising young award-winning designers. This is Ayanda Bulose’s debut as a director and he has not held back on his creative input and seeing him grow into a young talented director has been rewarding,” says UJ Arts & Culture Operations Manager Karabo Mtshali.
The Lord of the flies production team has partnered with the UJ Health & Safety department to collect recycling material used to build the set, reflecting on environmental issues that is a theme running through Bulose’s interpretation of the play.
Lord of the Flies will be staged at the Con Cowan Theatre from 11 to 14 September 2019
