Dark Noon

May 11th - June 1st 2019

Revolver at Republique

“Dark Noon throws everything into the mix in
this grand mélange of representation. It forces
the audience to think. In a discussion that often
becomes shrill and polarised, this is a
caring and much needed contribution.”

“It’s different and I dare to say it’s brilliant. Dark Noon is an excellent example of what modern performing arts can offer!”
Ungt Teaterblod

In a village built on red clay soil with saloon, gold mine, railway and church, seven South African actors playes out a western with cowboys and Indians, gold diggers and deadly gunfights. Along with director Tue Biering, the actors dive into a time when 35 million hungry and poor Europeans fled across the Atlantic to get a second chance, conquer gold and hunt the American dream.

Dark Noon is white facing, lawlessness, The Little House on the Prairie, whores, pickpockets and other good and bad things from the Wild West. Dark Noon is the relationship between the West and Africa turned inside-out and the audience never knows what to expect.
