Die gedeelde taal van verlies

Deur Herschelle Benjamin

Met Mbulelo Grootboom, Tinarie van Wyk Loots en Mahlodi Kenny Rakotsoane.

Teks: Lot Vekemans (vertaal deur Willem Anker)

Regie: Edwin Maas

Gif/Poison/Ityhefu is ’n meertalige kragtoer wat ’n mens aangryp en meesleur.

Met al die gesprekke oor taal wonder ’n mens hoe tale ooit gaan vooruitgaan – deur daarmee te eksperimenteer, dit te bewaar en dit te laat groei. En wat sê taal van die sosiale konteks waarin ons daagliks leef in verskillende dele in Suid-Afrika. Is daar hibriede tale, vermengings op pad? Gaan tale in die toekoms dalk ’n leksikologiese revolusie beleef?

Met dié produksie kry jy ’n gemoedsrus met die karakters se meertalige dialoog wat gemaklik binne hulself lê,  en ook vir ’n gehoorlid wat minstens kennis dra van een of twee ander tale buiten jou huistaal – Afrikaans, Engels en Xhosa.

’n Man en vrou sien mekaar jare later weer by die gifbesoedelde begraafplaas waar hul kind begrawe is. Die dood van hul kind is ’n gedeelde ervaring, maar elkeen beleef dit op sy eie manier en word verskillend daardeur geraak.

Die man het aanbeweeg, hy het ’n nuwe vrou en daar is ’n baba op pad. Die vrou haak ná al die jare steeds vas by die oomblik in die hospitaal toe hul seun sy laaste asem uitgeblaas het.

Hier het ons ’n teks van ’n Nederlandse toneelschrijfster (Vekemans) en ’n New Yorkse regisseur (Maas). Anker het dit vertaal na Suid-Afrikaans – sowel in konteks en taal. Die teks self het ’n musikale ritme.

Dit is verfrissend om ’n produksie te kyk waarby jy aanklank vind, wat bevestig hoeveel ons in gemeen het met mekaar. Ons het elke dag gedeelde ervarings: Zexit, staatskaping, droogte, brande, sukses, frustrasies en verlies, soos dit in dié stuk aangeroer word. Sterflikheid is tog deel van die legkaart van die lewe. Hoe om dit te hanteer en of daar ’n regte of verkeerde manier is, is die vrae wat ná die tyd in jou kop draai.

Die akteurs vertolk hul karakters met ’n rou eerlikheid. Van Wyk Loots se vakmanskap en vaardigheid verstom ’n mens weer eens – haar vermoë om van produksie tot produksie van gedaante te verwissel. Sy skep ’n karakter met deernis en empatie. Grootboom se vertolking getuig van gemak en sensitiwiteit, met al die nodige plato’s in ’n emosionele landskap. Dan is daar ook Rakotsoane se sniksang-stem wat vanuit die gehoor beweeg, en om die verhoog self, wat jou hoendervel gee. Hy laat jou die emosie van die karakters op die verhoog voel in die klankbaan wat hy met sy stem skep en dít verhoog jou eie emosies as gehoorlid.
