THE SPACE: THEATRE OF SURVIVAL


Dir Mark Street & Dan Poole


2019 | South Africa | United Kingdom | 87min


The Space tells the story of the theatre and community that gave birth to some of South Africa’s most important writing and acting talents and its most significant works of protest theatre. Beginning in 1972, at the height of the apartheid struggle, the film presents a portrait of a country in which the non-white majority has been brutally silenced and racial tensions are at breaking point. Set against this volatile political backdrop, a group of artists risked everything to build a safe non-racial space dedicated to artistic, social, and political freedoms. Featuring Athol Fugard (now the most performed playwright in the world after Shakespeare), John Kani and Winston Ntshona, Fatima Dike, Nomhle Nkonyeni, Wilson Dunster, Percy Sieff, Richard E Grant, and many more, The Space is narrated by multiple-award-winning acting legend, James Earl Jones.
