In these four plays, using combinations of four different languages, Magnet Theatre deploys performance to explore the theme of migration and the experience of being ‘between’ and ‘on the move’ that characterises life for many people in Cape Town and Southern Africa today.
‘Magnet Theatre is possibly the closest institution to a national theatre in South Africa, operating beyond buildings, migrating fluidly into empty spaces they find, creating rich potential out of liminal zones.’ – Anton Krueger
