Tannie & Tannie

Tannie & Tannie

Details

Tannie and Tannie (Tannie is Afrikaans for ‘Aunty’) have been the storytellers of their town for decades. Recently, their home has been plagued by earthquakes and their water inexplicably bursts into flame. Despite always having lived on the frontlines of survival, nothing has prepared them for this and it’s only a matter of time before drought and disease cripple their community. So they decide to leave to go on a trek - a journey that echoes the Great Trek of South African settlers in the 1800s, as well as every mass migration since and every potential human displacement in the future.
The audience joins the Tannies at midnight, as the last guest leaves their farewell party, and is witness to their attempts to finish packing, trying to decide where to go – where they might be accepted, their parting gifts of wisdom and their mourning the loss of all they must leave behind.
As dawn approaches, the Tannies play out their stories by transforming into the characters they draw so vividly. But something unthinkable happens and circumstances force the Tannies to face their demons and make the most difficult decision of their lives.
