In the Mail & Guardian’s ‘This week’s top 10: Thembi Mtshali-Jones returns to the Baxter stage with a solo tour de force, A Woman in Waiting, directed by Yael Farber.
The opening night audience stood as one and applauded this extraordinary performance. Thembi Mtshali-Jones takes you on a journey that is brilliantly evocative and manages to distil a truth that both engages and inspires.
It is a powerful biographical journey into the dark heart of what life was like for women in apartheid South Africa.
Using narrative, lullabies, chanting, haunting images and powerful song, it speaks for South African women who have endured life in the shadow of apartheid’s brutal grip and held themselves and their families together against unimaginable odds.
