Born African

by Over The Edge [Zimbabwe]

Time Out Critics' Choice

Tuesday 24 September 2002 - Saturday 12 October 2002

Three faces of modern Zimbabwe, a place as human as it is magical: a white lawyer, a coloured youth, a black servant. Over The Edge was founded in November 1994 on the occasion of the Avondale Summer Arts Festival in Harare. The most unique feature of the ensemble was not just their talent and enthusiasm but also their racial make up. At a time when multiculturalism was still an insipid cosmetic social convention, Over The Edge became known for breaking social and theatrical rules.
