FlipnFlap in Partnership with The Market Theatre Lab 30 years Festival present Skierlik
Four years since it’s last performance to sold out houses, the internationally revered, multi award winning South African classic of its time is back on stage for a limited tour season. With Phillip Dikotla reprising the role as Thomas: a character who’s real life events inspired the play, and a 20 year old Phillip to write the story.
Based on a tragic South African event of 14 January 2008, that took place in the small informal settlement of SKIERLIK. The play takes us on Thomas personal journey, returning back to his home of Skierlik, years after he left the place following the loss his daughter and wife on the eventful day. This heartfelt, traumatic, and thought provoking story of love, loss, and hope, paints poetic pictures with words, as told by the masterful story-teller that is Phillip Dikotla.
