About the event
Set in a remote South African village, a reclusive older woman, outrages her Afrikaans community by collaborating with a local shepherd to turn her family home into an extraordinary piece of art.
Based on the true story of Helen Martins and Koos and their creation, ‘The Owl House’.
Set in the isolated landscape of the South African Karoo and inspired by images from pictures and postcards, their world becomes dominated by form and colour. In her struggle to find the ‘light’, Helen looks towards Mecca as Koos faces the reality of apartheid prejudice and survival.
BRITISH PREMIERE, first performed in South Africa, 2009
Supported by Arts Council England.
