Don’t miss the poignant ‘Ek Sien ‘n Man’ at St Anne’s College

2012-01-26 00:00

DRAWN from the life stories and experiences of actor Dann-Jacques Mouton the one-man show, Ek Sien ‘n Man, can be seen at the Theatre at St Anne’s College in Hilton at 7.30 pm on February 2.

In the show, various characters are thrown together by circumstance. They naively think they are in total control of their lives, yet someone proceeds to unravel right in their midst.

Mouton depicts the places and brings to life each quirky character, magically transforming shape, mood and moment. Some characters are thoughtless, some humourless, some powerless, yet all the characters think they can see clearly. In the classic style of physical theatre, this production reveals a strong emphasis on visual and physical performance.

Mouton, who graduated from the University of Cape Town in 2009, performed at Maynardville in 2009’s As You Like It, directed by Geoffrey Hyland, and in 2010 as the Soothsayer in Marthinus Bason’s production of Antony and Cleopatra.

Since then, he has been working with Magnet Theatre under the direction of Mark Fleishman, appearing in Die Vreemdeling, which toured along the N7 and in KwaZulu-Natal; and Autopsy, which premiered at the Aard­klop Festival in 2010.

While in Hilton, the actor will be conducting the Form 4 Dramatic Arts Residency at St Anne’s College. This involves him teaching four intensive practical classes a day, for five days, in order to give the girls skills in physical and ­visual performance for their ­future use in creating and de­veloping practical work for drama.

Tickets for Ek Sien ‘n Man are R60 (R40 concessions). To book, phone 033 343 6100.
