 Reviews from “In Darfur” 

“In a brilliant and exquisitely controlled performance, Moyo makes us part of the fear she feels..

In actor Sipiwe Moyo, this production has found an actor whose physical portrayal is even more powerful than her spoken one.”



"HawA (IS) exquisitely portrayed by Sipiwe Moyo, whose future career seems absolutely assured if this is an example of her work. From her first line.. to her final brave march across the stage she is always the character she portrays.

We feel each and every pang of pain, every instant fear, every memory of sadness that she expresses. She is a wonder to behold.. Even Hawa’s final exit, a baby in her arms, leaves more questions than answers lingering on the slow fade of light that follows her.

This is extraordinary work from the actress.”



"In this remarkable ensemble, it’s unfair to pick out one performer. But it’s Moyo’s embodiment of Hawa – a modern Hecuba, broken but unyielding, standing majestic on the ashes of her homeland – that will sear your heart and follow you home."
