Special event
Every Year, Every Day, I Am Walking

By Magnet Theater from South Africa
Created by Magnet Theatre

The play, Every Year, Every Day, I Am Walking, traces the story of a young refugee in Africa who loses family and home brutally and irrevocably and is forced to journey to a new place through many dangers and uncertainties. It is a piece about dislocation, about what home means, about Africa, about loss and about the first tentative steps towards healing and recovery. A moving contemporary story told through evocative physical images by two of South Africa's foremost actresses, Jennie Reznek and Faniswa Yisa, and scored with live music by composer Neo Muyanga, Every Year, Every Day, I Am Walking celebrates the ability of human beings to heal and regain a sense of dignity and identity through the power of the imagination.
