Du Toit Dianne Albertze and Terence Makapan created (W)asem after both of them were involved in a racist incident in Stellenbosch earlier this year. In the viral video Makapan could be seen with a bloodied nose, he said that he had just been punched in the face by a young white male. Said male had used a racial slur against Makapan and his friends and when confronted about it, became enraged. Despite not provoking this individual, Makapan still received some backlash on social media, prompting him and Albertze to question the validity of one’s voice in these instances. Thus began their journey of “Waar is my asem?” The show will be at the Galloway Theatre on Thursday July 25 at 8pm.
