It Went Above Your Head.
Theatre / Glennie Hall

This production examines the dynamics of a seemingly normal family. As the play progresses however, it is apparent that the family is anything but normal, and that there is something dark and menacing happening. The shocking family secret is diabolically revealed, and shatters the family’ façade of ‘normalcy’.

About the Artists

NT Jikwa - Director & Writer
Born in Mdantsane, East London, NT studied at Cape Peninsula University of Technology. That is where he also received training in Performing Arts from Thamsanqa Mbongo. He has been an active performer since then. Upon completing his training, NT was cast as a lead actor for a theatre production called “The Spirit of Shakespeare in Africa” that went to the National Arts Festival in 2017 and in the same year he got his big breakthrough in a Television series by Bomb Shelter & The Narrators Africa called Nkululeko.


In 2018 he was cast for other film and television roles as an actor and that is when he was inspired to enhance his skills. He attended online training sessions to advance his skills. NT Jikwa’s writing and directing debuted in 2019 when he wrote and co-directed his indie short-film ‘Family, Aren’t We?’ That was well received, and the same year he wrote a theatre play called ‘A Religion Apart’ that also went to the National Arts Festival in 2019.

 

Through his dedication to the arts NT was recruited to join a growing film production company ‘CUMI MEDIA’ as a head writer and then was promoted to MD of the company. Since then he has been traveling nationally and internationally preaching the gospel of artistry through creating and educating the young generation and his peers. Currently NT is running his latest theatre play that is sold out at the Suideoosterfes, 'A Funeral: Is he being reasonable?'
