Amajuba: South African magic comes to Criterion

Preview by Jack Foley

AMAJUBA: Like Doves We Rise, the magnificent South African production, returns to London for 40 performances only, from April 5, following sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival and Barbican last year.

The production, directed by Yael Farber, will run at the Criterion from April 6, 2005 until May 28, 2005.

Amajuba: Like Doves We Rise is a dramatisation of the stories of five black people growing up in the impoverished townships of apartheid South Africa.

The actors bring their own experiences to life using a mixture of narration, dialogue, mime and song. They share their very personal experiences with each other and the audience. The stories present vivid images in both words and movement.

Amajuba: Like Doves We Rise was created as a celebration of the survival of the human spirit against the exceptionally harsh environment of apartheid South Africa. The piece was conceived and written by Yael Farber in collaboration with the cast.

Amajuba: Like Doves We Rise is an incredibly moving and powerful show.

The audience reception in Oxford was incredible. Reviews mentioned that 'you could not hear a pin drop' and the cast received standing ovations after every performance.
