I’m wondering if there is male nudity in this South African version of MISS JULIE….
From NYTimes by Ben Brantley:
“Be warned: There is more erotic heat generated by the play’s two central characters, fiercely inhabited by Hilda Cronje and Bongile Mantsai, than in any production in town. But this is a fire that chills as it destroys. You may well leave the show in a sweat, but it is likely to be a cold one.
The sex act that finally occurs, like a sudden explosion, between John and Julie is both a consummation and a violation. And just who is violating whom? Ms. Farber has taken special care to keep fluid the shifting choreography of dominance and submission.”
Presented by the Baxter Theater Center at the University of Cape Town, Lara Foot, producer; in association with South African State Theater; at St. Ann’s Warehouse, 29 Jay Street, at Plymouth Street, Dumbo, Brooklyn, (718) 254-8779, stannswarehouse.org. Through Dec. 2. Running time: 1 hour 30 minutes.
WITH: Hilda Cronje (Julie), Bongile Mantsai (John), Thoko Ntshinga (Christine) and Tandiwe Nofirst Lungisa (Ancestor/Singer/Musician).
