In November 2013, actors Hassan Oumhammed and Güner Güven of Stut theater opened the Isigcawu festival in KwaMashu township, Durban, South Africa. Their double bill Friend/Mahmoud is partly inspired by their own youth in the Utrecht-neighborhood of Overvecht. The festival in Durban also featured Brothers by Umsindo, a highly physical performance by two actors who are also twin brothers in real life who grew up in one of the townships of that city. ICAF-6 is happy to provide a platform for both these shows and the South-African experiences of the Dutch community actors.
