Through the mediums of physical theatre, mime and characterisation, The Moon Looks Delicious From Here, is a 60 minute, one-man theatre show which explores immigrant family dynamics and how they shape identity and heritage in a first-generation citizen.

The drama is driven by a loving father and son - each from different eras and motherlands. Here Brincat plays an array of characters in and around this fragile young nuclear family; some foreign, some local - all of whom are finding, or losing themselves in the ever-changing political landscape of their new homeland, South Africa.

Language, religion, ambition, sexuality and political leanings are brought into sharp focus as our two lead characters fight off 'otherness', while attempting to assert themselves into a volatile new country. Key moments in their lives are juxtaposed against powerful developments in South Africa's history during the 70s and 80s, and as the effects of apartheid begin to reach boiling point - family ties threaten to fall apart. Though set in Durban, the story is universal in its theme, particularly at this time when the intersectional effects of migrancy are brought increasingly into our consciousness.


No under 5
