The Musho! Festival takes place in Durban at the Catalina Theatre from January 16 to 20. 

Half Empty/Half Full marks the final performance of the festival on January 20 at 18h00. 

It is produced by Savannah Trust (Zimbabwe) with tour support from Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Arts Council, and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). Created by Tafadzwa Hananda and Teddy Mangawa and written by Leonard Matsa, the play is directed by Daniel Maposa with assistance from Lloyd Nyikadzino and performed by Tafadzwa Hananda and Teddy Mangawa. 

Two political leaders from highly contesting factions crumble when they face a public uprising. Problems they failed to solve and encounters and alliances they have faced and forged, which form their political history, good and bad, are narrated through this satire on contemporary Zimbabwean politics. (Comedy; ages 13+; 60 minutes) 

Half Empty/Half Full will be followed by the Musho! 2013 prize-giving from 19h15 until 20h00.
