Drama • Running Time: 70 mins
Directed by Tauriq Jenkins | Written and Performed by Estelle Terblanche | Produced by Estelle Terblanche and Tauriq Jenkins

Christine is an actor, one of many in an industry. She is made up of many parts. She plays many parts, in part broken, in part happy but for the most part, courageous. This is a theatrical piece of an actor’s life, and the complex relationship the body and voice of the individual has with an industry that commodifies the female form, swinging between celebration and objectification. Her work traverses the biography of self and other that speak deeply to the humanity, integrity, and complexity of an actor’s life.

This play, written by Estelle Terblanche, is anchored by a metaphysical bent on the inner workings of a female actor in a society of pervasive misogyny. Estelle uses a mixture of her own experiences, those of her friends experiences and stories she has heard to inspire the script. She is using this enormous library to draw on for her interpretation of Christine. As a male member of this industry, and someone who is very aware of the similarities and differences between male and female struggles within this society, Tauriq strives to bring an objective and informed view of the complexities that not only make this career choice so difficult, but also compels actors to keep working and hoping.
