VETERAN actor Zenzo Nyathi is applying final touches to his upcoming one-man theatrical show, “An act of man” slated for the Bulawayo Theatre on Friday.
The actor, popularly known for his role in yesteryear drama, “Amakorokoza” as Mzambane has thrived on theatrical skits in recent times.
Speaking to Chronicle Showbiz, the actor said the show directed by actor and director Memory Kumbota will expose the power of premonition.
“In this one-man piece, a rain diviner is forced to look, not only to past traditions but also to the future to try to come to terms with his own personal misfortunes and the natural disasters of droughts and floods. Told through a zestful mix of storytelling, mime, dance, and song, the one-hander play adventurously interrogates the role that traditional knowledge systems and science play in a fast-changing world and in climate change intervention,” Nyathi said.
“An act of man” will be workshopped by Global Creative Collections and Ingxoxo Arts while the musical score will be recorded by Umkhathi Theatre and the sound effects provided by Dubdocs.
Recently, Zenzo Nyathi underscored the need to pass on the baton to the younger generation when he featured in Charleston Trust Primary School Choir’s “Smile” music video. – @eMKlass_49
