Multiple award-winning team of “Land Acts” Daniel Richards, Rob van Vuuren (director) and writer Mike van Graan will be performed at Cornerstone Institute.                                                         

In celebration of Heritage Day on 24 September 2018, Cornerstone Institute will host a one-off staging of the acclaimed play, Land Acts, the third collaboration between the multiple award-winning team of Daniel Richards, Rob van Vuuren (director) and writer Mike van Graan.

Richards is a hugely talented performer who has won fans and awards around the country for his performances in Pay Back the Curry and State Fracture. He is currently appearing as William Shakespeare in the Fugard Theatre’s return season of Shakespeare in Love (till 6 October) after which he immediately leaves for a year of study in the United Kingdom.

This is the only public opportunity for Capetonians to see this show before he leaves for the United Kingdom. Mike van Graan’s work is typically provocative, intelligent, emotive and extremely witty. Land Acts is no exception.

Land Acts has received excellent reviews and audience feedback during the National Arts Festival and its subsequent run at Theatre on the Square in Johannesburg.

“Land Acts will leave you in stitches at how the many characters approach an issue that is very much alive in South Africa: land. A great show delivered by a great talent.” Spotlight, National Arts Festival

Robyn Sassen of the Arts At Large said that “Land Acts is even more potent than its predecessors Pay Back the Curry and State Fracture…it’s the one-man show you shouldn’t miss.”

Land Acts has evoked enthusiastic audience responses for its varied perspectives on the land theme, for the theatricality of the show and its diverse forms of song, drama, storytelling and poetry, and for the sheer talent of its solo performer.

“I’m delighted to be sharing Heritage Day with talented artists such as Daniel Richards, Rob van Vuuren, Mike van Graan and the Cornerstone Community. Come and join us. Land Acts is not to be missed,” said Noel Daniels, the CEO of Cornerstone Institute.

  • About Cornerstone Institute:

Cornerstone Institute was founded in 1970 on the Cape Flats at a time when apartheid excluded prospective black theologians from attending universities. Under these conditions Cornerstone provided theological education for unqualified pastors on the Cape Flats.

Over time Cornerstone grew into a world class higher learning institution offering a wide range of degrees, certificates, diplomas and short courses in the social sciences and commerce.

The institute historically is grounded in and continues a strong focus on ethical values and professional integrity as the foundations of leadership. It embraces students from all walks of life and focuses on the development of leaders.

Cornerstone is a non-profit, fully accredited Private Higher Education Institution offering undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in two faculties, namely the Faculties of Humanities, and of Entrepreneurship and Economic Transformation. Most of our programmes are offered online as well as on campus, making it easy for students to study.
