AFDA Honours Acting Students Present DISCONnECTED

With 2020 at it's last stretch, the AFDA Honours acting students present the live production of DISCONnECTED.

DISCONnECTED is about 4 AFDA students living in a digs in Observatory during lockdown, and the emotional trauma that came with intense isolation and the social dynamic of being stuck together, with no escape. It touches on the impact that lockdown has had on mental health, relationships and life that carries on outside of the pandemic. The story is inspired by these 4 exceptional young adults experiences during lockdown and is a universal tale that can speak to many South Africans during this difficult time.

Gripping, poignant and haunting, the tale is written and performed by Alex Adika, Elria Nel, Mary Gaitho, Sameera Scharneck, promising future artists who are soon to take the professional industry by storm. The show has been facilitated by multi-disciplinary artist and Theatre Maker Nicola Date. Known currently as a Stand-up Comedian, Producer and Costume Designer, Nicola's experience has spanned many fields within the film and theatre Industry, including being the Masque Theatre Manager for 2 years.
