Does Ladysmith Black Mambazo send chills up your spine? Paul Simon’s album Graceland brought South Africa’s musical roots to Western pop culture. And it was Athol Fugard who exposed its dramatic wisdom. Now comes another South African auteur taking the pulse of her country’s complex social reality. Robyn Orlin is known for work that can be subversive, outrageous, provocatively humorous, and visually arresting. From her early days as a choreographer during the Apartheid era, Orlin has made a career of confronting taboo subjects with a heightened, vaudevillian theatricality that aims to test and redefine ideas about South African performance.
