Making Grace Amazing

29 to 29 June 2020

Making Grace Amazing Directed By Neo MuyangaMaking Grace Amazing is a production directed by Neo Muyanga, which details the history and meaning behind the Amazing Grace hymn.

The production forms part of the 2020 Virtual National Arts Festival. This work is a subversion that reimagines the past meaning of the black diaspora protest hymn as well as the trans-Atlantic slave trade.

Muyanga looks at the dark and obscured past of the song and brings the audience new music, animations and themes that are relevant to current times. Making Grace Amazing features the Khayelitsha-based mezzo soprano, Tina Mene, and the popular São Paolo protest theatre troupe, Legítima Defesa.
