A show about colonial subjugation in a country (Wales) which is both a victim and also a beneficiary of the wider colonial project, means we in Wales can really empathise with the issues of Apartheid South Africa and its lasting legacy. Here are a few comments from audience members:
“…a hugely powerful and moving piece of theatre, so impressively delivered by Joe and Wela as ‘John’ and ‘Winston’; they were giants on the stage that night. It was a privilege to be there; to be made to confront the uncomfortable truth of a tragic human injustice, yet see the courage of the human spirit prevail despite that injustice and all conveyed so movingly by Joe and Wela is an experience that will stay with me for a very, very long time.” Jennifer Owen-Adams, Chair of Powys Dance
"I went to see the opening of The Island @DawnsPowysDance by @wearefio, I saw an absolutely captivating play that kicks you in your solar plexus, makes you laugh & empathic towards characters, Winston played by @WMbusi & John @JosephShire it was brilliant! @abdul_shayek has Vision." Shirley May, Director of Young Identity
