My Role: Live Theatre Director
We told such a rousing story about the origins of the Baobab... And how it came to spread it's seed all over Africa... It was beautiful. We did in a cinema with the massive screen as the performance backdrop... These were the backdrops... They are simple but on that enormous screen they were fantastic. Haunting music... dappled light... a beautiful script by Nick Warren... a stunning performance by Yule Mabhena... spectacular visuals by Tyron Janse Van Vuuren... It rocked.
The below image had nothing to do with the performance... but I just love it.
It's enormously satisfying to watch a corporate audience be enthralled by live theatre. Everybody loves a good story well told. Once upon a time... and everyone leans in.
