Monday 2nd July 2012. Magnet Theatre, Unit 1, Old Match Factory, Cnr Lower Main & St. Michaels Road, Observatory, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa. MAGNET THEATRE'S VOICES MADE NIGHT 2012! MAGNET THEATRE BRINGS THEIR LATEST PRODUCTION OF 'VOICES MADE NIGHT' TO THE GRAHAMSTOWN NATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL 2012! ('Voices Made Night' is adapted from the short stories Vozes Anoitecidas by Mia Couto). Magnet Theatre’s latest production as part of the company’s 25th anniversary year is a remake of their award winning production, 'Voices Made Night'. The production will be part of the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown on the 6, 7 and 8 July 2012 at Graeme College. Voices Made Night reflects all of Magnet Theatre’s orientations as a company – a focus on creative, innovative and sophisticated African theatre which engages with their present condition in Southern Africa; a commitment to developing theatre that consistently challenges form, the roles of theatre and its reach; and the prioritizing of the body and the physical image. Mia Couto’s wonderfully imagistic tales confront head-on the difficulties facing post-colonial societies in the process of transformation. They offer unique insights into the psychic damage, which has been the legacy, both of colonial history and the wars of de-colonization, but there is no sense of hopelessness or despair in the work as a whole because of the immensely creative manner in which the stories are told and the rich and creative life of the imagination of his characters. Directed by Mark Fleishman with original music by Neo Muyanga and set design by Craig Leo the cast consists of: Jennie Reznek, Faniswa Yisa, Mfundo Tshazibane, Dann-Jaques Mouton, Thando Doni, Chiminae Ball and Richard September.
