The ASSITEJ South Africa gave sixty five learners the opportunity to experience the production; Hani: the Legacy at the Baxter Theatre.
The Market Theatre Laboratory presented a Gold-Ovation and Naledi Award Winning celebration of Chris Hani’s life.Inspired by the hit American musical Hamilton, the Hani story is told through the contemporary song form of hip- hop, rap and ballad.
Through this fresh form, Chris Hani’s message for the youth is voiced. In an energetic hour-long show filled with song and dance, we grapple with the gap Hani left us and are inspired by how we can use his legacy to move forward. Hani especially appeals to a young audience. It is informative and educational, as well as being an inspiring, robust theatrical experience. – High School Programme – Cradle of Creative Arts 2019
