Aeneas Wilder: projects Stage set design, Fourth Person in the Yard, Cape Town, South Africa. 2013

Fourth Person in the Yard set design

This set design was commissioned by Infecting The City as a stage set for " Fourth Person in the Yard", a play byMhlanguli George. The play itself took place outdoors in a pedestrianised section of central Cape Town as part of the festival programme.

"When we walk in the street we only see the front view of the yards we pass, especially those with fences and big walls. Even when we knock at the door we hear a voice calling "I'm coming" or "come in!" The Fourth Person in the Yard came about as a result of the artist's curiosity about these back yards.


The play was performed by Nozuko Tahisa, Livie Ncanywa, Xolani Pikoko and Athenkosi Mfamela.
