Farber: Plays One



Yael Farber


Oberon Books

Molora - Based on The Oresteia by Aeschylus

In this reworking of Aeschylus’ Oresteia, Klytemnestra and Elektra face one another in a dramatic confrontation. Attempts to come to terms with their violent past echo testimonies delivered in Apartheid’s wake throughout South Africa during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

 

RAM: The Abduction of Sita into Darkness - Based on The Ramayana by Valmiki

 Farber’s potent revisioning of this age-old text is a raw and probing contemporary work which places the loss of the Feminine Divine, and thus our lack of spiritual and moral equilibrium, at its visceral core. This is a Ramayana for a new world.

 

Mies Julie - Based on Miss Julie by August Strindberg

Transposed to a post-apartheid kitchen—a single night, both brutal and tender, unfolds between a black farm-labourer, the daughter of his master and the woman who has raised them both. The visceral struggles of contemporary South Africa are laid bare, as John and Mies Julie spiral in a deadly battle over power, sexuality, mothers and memory.

 

Yaël Farber is an award-winning theatre artist of international acclaim. Her original works have toured the world extensively, earning her a reputation for hard-hitting, controversial theatre of the highest artistic standards.
