Lockdown by Warren Nebe

Live Zoom Reading (Running time: 60 minutes)

Lockdown is a meditation on grief, trauma, our relationship to nature and how we find healing. It is wordsmithed with layers of South African theatricality and cyclical storytelling. 

"What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset." 
- Crowfoot, Isapo-Muxika a chief of the Siksika First NAtion. 1830 - 1890

The origins of the play emerged in the Unga Klara and Drama for Life Writing for Children’s Theatre Workshop that included mentorship for writers. Warren Nebe was mentored by Erik Uddenberg. The project was supported by the Embassy of Sweden (South Africa) and Arts Research Africa, University of the Witwatersrand.
