Experimental Drama Writ Large
Staged in the vast Drill Hall (one of the largest unobstructed interior spaces in the city), The Head and the Load is the latest venture from acclaimed artist William Kentridge. Combining dance, theatre, projections, and music, it's a tribute to the millions of African porters and 'carriers' of WWI, whose suffering has been forgotten by the history books.
Kentridge created this momentous new work alongside composer Philip Miller, his long-time collaborator, and the orchestra collective The Knights. Like nothing you've ever seen, this is groundbreaking theatre on an unprecedented scale.
