Genre(s): New Writing

About: Molora

In this reworking of the ancient Greek Oresteia Trilogy, Klytemnestra and Elektra, mother and daughter, face one another in a dramatic confrontation. Their attempts to come to terms with their violent past echo the testimonies delivered in the wake of apartheid all over South Africa as part of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

A chorus of Xhosa tribeswomen brings grace and humanity to the drama through the ancient art of split tone singing, adding a haunting intensity to this evocative production. Intimate and epic, with unforgettable performances.

South African director Yael Farber established The Farber Foundry to formalise a body of work that she has created in collaboration with South African artists over the past ten years. The Farber Foundry produces theatre that addresses the stories of South Africa’s shattered past and helps to envisage the future. Its production of Amajuba (bite05) received standing ovations across the world.
