Students make high school learning easy

03 March 2008

High school learners in Cape Town are having their studies eased as UCT students perform Kanna, hy kô hystoe, a prescribed work for both Grade 11 and Grade 12 pupils.

Perfomed by second- and third-year drama students, the show forms part of the School of Drama's ongoing quest to bring set literary works to learners across the Cape Peninsula.

Kanna, hy kô hystoe is a Brechtian Afrikaans play which brings together the past and present in a heart-wrenching manner. It takes one back to a time of true characters, dilemmas, hope and the survival of a community waiting for deliverance and salvation from their very own Kanna.

Written by the famed Adam Small, the show opened on March 1 in the Little Theatre and will run from Mondays to Fridays until 14 March.

Sandra Temmingh directs, with lighting design done by Daniel Galloway, while costumes have been designed by Illka Louw and Leila Anderson.
