01 Apr CLAN by Francesco Nassimbeni
“Margot does pottery. Ruth reads a lot. Katherine is working on a computer programme which no-one understands. Kim is training for a triathlon. Elias is doing nothing in particular. Together they live at 104 Ravenhurst Avenue, Hillside. Sometimes, if it’s warm, they braai in the garden. Jessica makes sure they wear sunscreen. Sometimes their cars break down. Sometimes they fight. Sometimes they throw things.
There is one thing, though, which sets them apart from other people – sometimes Margot, Kim, Elias, Katherine, Jessica and Ruth drink blood.”
Told in a series of monologues and scenes, Clan imagines what happens when allegiances and traditions become questioned, and individuals turn around to face the group. Part coming of age love-story, part tightly wrought gothic suspense, Clan questions what it is to belong, and what it is to believe.
A whip-sharp, laugh-out loud joyride into the lives of contemporary neck-biters,
Clan is written and directed by Francesco Nassimbeni.
