On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Penelope Youngleson about A Man and A Dog.
A Man and A Dog.
Written as a personal reflection for Mkhwanazi on his life growing up in KZN and his isiZulu identity, it explores a homecoming familiar to so many South Africans: who are our ancestors…and how do we know who we are until we know where we truly come from?
This award winning play makes use of oral tradition, song, instrumentation and physical theatre to weave together a retelling of our collective family as South Africans. A rediscovery of ourselves …a remembering of what it means to be of this country.
Story by Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi
