Africa Table - City on the Move: Performance and Migration in Cape Town, South Africa

Join the Center for African Studies for our weekly lunchtime lecture series.
Speaker: Mark Fleishman, Professor of Theatre, University of Cape Town, South Africa.
Mark Fleishman is head of Drama at the University of Cape Town. He has contributed articles to journals and chapters for books but the main body of his research has been realized through production. He is a director of Magnet Theatre, has created 18 new works for the company over 20 years, and is involved in a number of projects in urban townships and rural communities.
In his talk he will discuss his latest research examining Cape Town’s performance as a city defined by both migration and mobility. His examination of the conceptual and actual route between Cairo to the Cape is of particular interest to grad students focused on performance, postcolonial cities, migration, and community-based projects.
