The film is based on the PhD fieldwork of postdoctoral fellow, Alex Halligey. The 2015/2016 project was a year-long participatory public art engagement in Bertrams, Lorentzville and Judith’s Paarl, culminating in a site-specific play called, Izithombe 2094. The play was modelled on the form of a walking tour, as fictional tour guide characters lead audience members through the suburbs, with performances happening along the way. The project aimed to use participatory theatre and performance processes to explore daily life in the area and this short film documents the making and performance of the final play.The School of Architecture and Planning will host the premiere screening of a short documentary film, Izithombe 2094.
