FREE ENTRANCE / HAKUNA KIINGILIO

Rare and unique in its presentation and yet unequivocal in it’s mirroring of the moral decrepitude of man, “Lamentations @ 12”, is an emotionally and mentally aesthetic rich piece of work. Positioned through four epochs (1895 – 2015), “Lamentations @ 12”, gives us sight which makes us cringe as we journey through the eyes of innocence.

Through carefully crafted vignettes, our writer, director, actresses, technical team and choreographer bring to life, naked in rawness, various epochs which society prefers to view through stormy and hazy lenses.

This one hour theatre piece is directed by Daves Guzha and features Gertrude Munhamo, Dalma Chiwereva, and Lewis Ndhlovu, of Zimbabwe. To date, the play has been presented in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Kenya and Uganda. This year, it will be performed in Malawi, Mali, Senegal, Morocco, the UK, Tanzania, South Africa, Edinburgh, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. We hope you will join us! (*Please note, the play may contain content that is not appropriate for children under 11 years of age.)

Previous Reviews:

"Munhamo takes audiences on a swinging journey of laughter and sorrow as she seeks to expose abuses that the girl child experiences in the society in different circumstances. …In addition to her writing debut, Munhamo stars in the production alongside talented Delma Chiwereva and the combination of their expertise on stage brings a complete package." (Herald – Godwin Muzari)

"…a very unique one-hour presentation that is lit up by energetic folk dances and songs that give the production a rich element of cultural heritage…" (Sunday Mail, Zimbabwe, 21 August 2016).

"Munhamo inachukua watazamaji katika safari ya kicheko na huzuni wakati akijaribu kufichua dhuluma na unyanyasaji anaoupata mtoto wa kike katika mazingira tofauti ya kila siku . ... Mkwa kuongezea katika uandishi wake wa kwanza, Munhamo anang'aa katika mchezo huu sambamba na Delma Chiwereva ambao kwa pamoja mchanganyiko wa utaalamu wao unaleta kitu kizuri zaidi.
