AVU

This spine chilling and gripping story draws a thin line between reality and fantasy, acting and being, seeing and believing, a dance between Boer and Bantu, a political symphony, with a lonely voice singing: “Maar ek sal bly maak en breek en bou, my Afrika-lyf en skepping met valse voorwendsels en verwagtinge verwoes, tot eendag wanneer jy my sal raaksien – my sal sien en sê: Ons almal lyk mos maar so…” Freedom. Amandla. Avu. Dove. Duif.
