Waiting for the Sibyl, a piece for nine performers, takes place as a series of six short scenes. The work incorporates elements characteristic of Kentridge – projection, live performance, recorded music, dance/movement and shadows projected by the performers onto a hand-painted backdrop – to tell the story of the Cumaean Sibyl.

The Moment Has Gone is a 22-minute film with Kyle Shepherd on piano and an all-male South African choir. It incorporates City Deep, the latest film in Kentridge’s Soho Eckstein series, and footage of him creating the work.



The chamber opera Waiting for the Sibyl and the film The Moment Has Gone form a unique two-part evening by South African artist William Kentridge.
