Skoonveld

Skoonveld (© Suzy Bernstein)

Once a luxurious tapestry, now a threadbare heirloom, this cherished portrait has often been restored. Weather-beaten and refurbished, treasured then forgotten, Skoonveld is this tapestry – a living still-life, a Voortrekker idyll, a pastoral landscape that paints and repaints the past. Skoonveld was part of the production PLASTIC which was awarded a Standard Bank Ovation Award at the National Arts Festival 2013. In addition, Skoonveld received a 2013 Standard Bank Silver Ovation Award and the 2014 Kyknet Fiesta Award for Best Dance or Physical Theatre Production.

Choreographed by Thalia Laric and Steven van Wyk
