Confronting the African nightmare: Yael Farber’s SeZaR (theatre review)

Wright, L.S. (2001) Confronting the African nightmare: Yael Farber’s SeZaR (theatre review). Shakespeare in Southern Africa, 13 . pp. 93-99. ISSN 1011-582X




Yael Farber’s adaptation of Julius Caesar marks something of a breakthrough in South African Shakespeare productions. The key achievement is that the play is no longer about Rome or Renaissance England, nor is it about processes of cultural translation or trendy theatrical Africanisation, largely cosmetic. This production is, in a generous way, squarely and pointedly about Africa.
