DARK NOON

AN AFRICAN WESTERN ABOUT EUROPEAN MIGRATION


-

In a village built on red clay with a saloon, gold mine, railway and church, seven South African actors film a western with cowboys and Indians, golddiggers, missionaries and lots of deadly gunfights.

Together with director Tue Biering and choreographer Nhlanhla Mahlangu the actors dive into a time when 35 million hungry and poor Europeans fled west across the Atlantic to get a second chance, conquer gold and eat of the American dream. It will be a deadly journey. Because in God’s own country, neither black nor white lives matter in the pursuit of happiness.

DARK NOON is abuse, a little house on the prairie, whores, pickpockets and what else the Wild West could offer. It is the wild and lawless story of Western civilization told by a group of South African white facing actors. Here the relationship between the West and Africa is turned inside out and the audience never knows what to expect.

Premiered in 2019 at REVOLVER at REPUBLIQUE, Denmark.
