The Clifton ‘Transformation Wall’

The Clifton ‘Transformation Wall’

By Mrs Noku Dlamini
Director of Transformation: College

The sanctity of birds is frequently related to their ability to fly close to the heavens and get wisdom from a different perspective. That is why I was so thrilled when Gifford “Giffy” Duminy proposed birds as our symbol of transformation at Clifton. That is what being transformed is about, being able to take on multi perspectives and be empathetic.

From Stage to Screen – a Clifton COVID adventure

By Nichola and Ivan Boniaszczuk

Alongside many tragedies caused by the pandemic, the closing of theatres and the shackling of The Arts for so long, has been a cause of much heartache. Just as the livelihoods of so many professional performers were unravelling, our own young performers were missing out on vital parts of their development.

‘Master Harold’… and the boys

‘Master Harold’… and the boys

By Phoebe Jordaan-Schoeman

The lights came on, the speakers buzzed, the stage wall received paint, costumes were dusted off, props precisely placed – the rehearsal of lines echoing on the empty walls of the auditorium…For the first time in more than a year, the curtains of the Sutcliffe theatre opened on 13 May for one evening of theatre.

This year’s annual production was of Athol Fugard’s autobiographical play, “‘Master Harold’ … and the boys”. The audience was transported to a tearoom in St George’s Park, Port Elizabeth in the 1950s where they witnessed the defining moment in Hally’s life.
