Abstract:

"Two case studies constitute the core around which is woven this story of the development of black theatre in South Africa in the early years of the century." "The argument concerns the intellectual formation of the early African elite in relation to colonial authority and how each affected the other in complicated ways. Much of the work in the field of African Studies still relies on rigid distinctions of 'tradition' and 'modernity', 'collaboration' and 'resistance', 'indigenous' and 'foreign'. This book moves well beyond these frameworks to probe the complex entanglements of different intellectual traditions in the South African context."--Jacket.
