Tannie & Tannie

at Theatre By The Lake, Keswick

This event has been and gone.

Tannie and Tannie (Tannie is Afrikaans for ‘Aunty’) have been the storytellers of their town for decades. Recently, their home has been plagued by earthquakes and their water inexplicably bursts into flame.

Despite always having lived on the frontlines of survival, nothing has prepared them for this and it’s only a matter of time before drought and disease cripple their community. So they decide to leave to go on a trek - a journey that echoes the Great Trek of South African settlers in the 1800s, as well as every mass migration since and every potential human displacement in the future.
