Performed by Danieyella Rodin

Playwright: Danieyella Rodin // Director: Tamara Guhrs

Night/Light is about Her – armed with a box of matches to soften the evening shadows, some wise words dancing around her head and a voice that is dying to escape her lips – finding her way alone in the dark. Are the shadows really as dark as they first appear?

Night/Light is a multi-disciplinary music theatre experience for 9-11 year olds which explores the dark side of light and the light side of dark through music, shadows, live action and video footage. Created in partnership with the Goethe-Institut South Africa as part of the Goethe-Institut Project Space (GPS)and The Hillbrow Theatre, Night/Light is presented by Blank Canvas Kollective (performer Danieyella Rodin and multi-instrumentalist David Cornwell) and directed by Tamara Guhrs. Night/Light follows one character, Her, as she learn to overcome fear, discomfort and change by finding a glimmer of light in the darkest of spaces.
