It’s been a year since the launch of The Keeper of the Kumm book and Dance Drama. In Litnet’s African Library Annie Gagiano says “following in the footsteps of Chinua Achebe” it is “one of the most important South African autobiographies”.
We are now working on taking this production to other centres and other parts of the world. If the reviews and feedback on social networks is anything to go by, the past year has been just the start…
So far the Kumm book has won the Mbokodo Prize for Literature and been shortlisted for the annual University of Johannesburg 2017 Awards. It is also on the long-list of the Sunday Times Alan Paton Award.
The Kumm Dance Drama is 90 minutes. For theatre people, partners and stakeholders there is an unlisted link to extracts from the Artscape performance as well as a video of the full run.
A feature documentary is in production and will be available next year.
