Tsimba Arts Production, a new arts organisation, will next week premiere a play titled Apokalupsis at the University of Zimbabwe (UZ) in Harare.
Tsimba Arts Production is made up of a vibrant, creative team of UZ theatre arts graduates and renowned theatre and film practitioners.
Peace Mukwara, commercial director, said the play was a pre-colonial explosive, humorous and well-crafted theatrical thriller that imaginatively engages with the socio-political and economic developments of the day.
Mukwara said the play addressed issues of the deceit, power, tribal relations and gender equity.
“The play reflects on the destructive nature of power and the subaltern voices from the less prevalent tribes in Zimbabwe.
The play also interrogates the tribal relations existing in the nation,” said Mukwara.
He added that the play seeks to go beyond cultural boundaries which have marginalised Zimbabwean women.
The organisation’s vision is to redefine art by producing and promoting a variety of creative works which mainly include dramatic works, music, dance and film.
Tsimba boasts of a convergence of complementary talent comprising of Tendayi Marekera who is the vision-bearer and executive producer.
The Tsimba team also boasts of characters like Patrick Tembo, Blessing Hungwe, and UZ theatre arts graduates, Tatenda Mangosho, Peace Mukwara, Florence Mhungu, and Rumbidzayi Karize.
