On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Thando Lobese-Moropa about the set and costumes for The Train Driver.
Set & Costume Design for The Train Driver.
Noluthando Lobese Moropa has a fashion design background and moved into set design with the help of mentor Nadya Cohen. Lobese Moropa has several award nominations to her name. She has recently also starting dabbling in the visual arts.
Noluthando Lobese Moropa is the costume and set designer for The Train Driver, a haunting mesmerizing and deeply personal journey into the human soul. The play was inspired by the true event of Pumla Lolwana who, in December 2000, pulled her three children close to her body and stepped in front of a train on the railway tracks between Philippi and Nyanga on the Cape Flats. The horrific situation was first captured in Athol Fugard’s notebook, Karoo and other stories, yet it was only a while later that it was conceptualized into a play.
