LAST COW STANDING
Time & Location
About the Event
LAST COW STANDING is one of Menzi Mkhwane’s most iconic works. It tells the story of a little boy named Samira who is sent by his frail grandmother to save his people by traveling to the northern region of the kingdom to speak to the king to convince him to stop his people’s cows from being killed. But can he muster the courage to do it…
To many people LAST COW STANDING stands as testament to Menzi Mkhwane’s incredible ability as a performer. He is able in that solo performance to take audience on an epic journey just with his voice his incredible ability as a narrator. His ability as an actor is incomparable as he juggles a whopping 13 characters all by himself.
LAST COW STANDING is a theatre treat and has loads of comic relief as Menzi deals with very serious issues in the play. Those who have been wanting a comeback will get to see the show take place again in Durban.
Menzi will feature live music created by Sbo Ncwane in the show.
“I love rediscovering LAST COW STANDING as the show is so natural to me now…” says Mkhwane commenting about his comeback.
Mkhwane is doing this special comeback at the MAZISI KUNENE MUSEUM where the INNOVATION CENTRE has opened doors to artists so they can present their work to the public.
It is exciting for Mkhwane to try this new space as it is an open space that can accommodate an intimate audience that wants to witness a relaxed atmosphere and an exciting evening of theatre.
Menzi Mkhwane opens LAST COW STANDING on 17th, 24th 31st July and 7th, 14th,21st and 28th August.
