Kwasha! Theatre Company, directed by Theatre Duo Mahlatsi Mokgonyana and Billy Langa, give their contemporary interpretation of this thought-provoking tale. Rhinoceros is an emblematic work from the Romanian-French playwright Eugène Ionesco, one of the foremost figures of the French avant-garde theatre and the Theatre of the Absurd. The play depicts an imaginary epidemic of “rhinoceritis”, a disease that frightens all the inhabitants of a city. A metaphor for the rise of totalitarianism on the eve of the Second World War, it addresses the themes of conformism and resistance to political power.
Rhinoceros and its national tour is made possible with support from the French Institute of South Africa and Mazars.
