Ahead of director and performer Nick Boraine‘s talk at CreativeMornings Johannesburg next Friday, we’ve been reading up on some of the groundbreaking work being explored by his friends at the Global Arts Corps. Today, we’re sharing a review of their play “Hold Your Tongue; Hold Your Dead”, which last year enjoyed a four-week residency at ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage in Boston, MA.
“Hold Your Tongue” follows the lives of two intersecting families as they struggle to find happiness, or any sort of resolution, in post-conflict Northern Ireland. The script and actors treated their material with a sincerity that allowed the overall atmosphere of the culture to pervade the production.
The talk is set to happen at the Nicework offices on Friday the 24th of January, from 8:30- to 10am. Ticket bookings open on Monday (the 20th of January), but create your profile in the meantime so you’re ready to grab your seat. Doubleshot will once again be providing amazing coffee.
