Our new theatre baby; ‘The Crucifixion of Amagqwirha’

Last year The Movement RSA brought you ‘Just Antigone’ and this year we’re back with a new setwork! ‘The Crucifixion of Amagqwirha’ is inspired by Arthur Miller’s ‘The Crucible’ – the 2017 setwork for IEB Matric learners.
This is a tale of how gossip and superstition can fiercely capture the mind of a people. Looking at how myth can still live in the imagination, and for some the reality of life, this tale follows a community forced to look at its own faults and dreams.

Forming The Movement RSA

At the end of 2015, Billy Langa, Mahlatsi Mokgonyana and Jovan Muthray called together a group of young, local artists to discuss the current state of theatre in South Africa.

After much consideration, debate and idea sharing, these artists decided to form a theatre collective in order to make fresh, innovative work, promote art within education, and help theatre become accessible to all people. Thus ‘The Movement RSA’ was born.
