Thoriso le Morusu
Venue: St George’s Cathedral
Date: Tue 12th March | Thurs 14th March
Duration: 25 mins
Thoriso le morusu is inspired by, and based on, Antjie Krog’s poem, Country of Grief and Grace – a poem that reads like an intimate and harrowingly candid conversation between two people, perhaps siblings or even lovers, about the pain they have caused one another.
It is performed by Neo Muyanga with the Siyaya Chorus, accompanied Sylvain Baloubeta on bass and Texito Langa on percussion.
The performance was originally commissioned by SAMRO, and especially rearranged for the festival. It is played in 5 movements: prayer, a confession, the mantra, a manifesto and catharsis. The text is sung in Sesotho, Afrikaans and English.
Performed by: Neo Muyanga with the Siyaya Chorus, accompanied Sylvain Baloubeta on bass and Texito Langa on percussion.
