Theatre: The Epicene Butcher

By Jemma Kahn and Gwydion Beynon
Director: John Trengove
Performed by Jemma Kahn and Glen Biderman-Pam
Perth Fringe
Until Feb 2

The last two Perth Fringes have been electrified by the South Africans: 2011’s …miskien and last year’s Dirt and The Three Little Pigs re-introduced us to the talent and savage theatrical insight of our mighty Indian Ocean neighbour we first saw here 40 years ago in The Island and Sizwe Banzi is Dead, Athol Fugard’s brilliant, excoriating attacks on apartheid.
That power and nerve is here again with Jemma Kahn and Gwydion Beynon’s 
The Epicene Butcher, but it comes in an exotic form – the venerable Japanese story-telling art of Kamishibai, literally “paper drama”.
