Loudine Heunis

Loudine Heunis is a Masters student at Uni Leipzig who hails from sunny South Africa. She spent the last six years in South Korea, teaching English, and makes a mean kimchi. She worked in various capacities in the South African music industry and smack-bang in front of the stage (but never on it!) is her happy place. She loves traveling, meeting new people, cooking for friends, going to shows of all kinds, photography and art, and is an avid appreciator of the gorgeous canals of Leipzig. She has a baffling number of followers on Instagram who apparently share her love of aforementioned canals, as well as her sometimes dodgy food pics and the many, many pics hashtagged #studylife. She honestly has no clue why they are remotely interested in any of this.

TML not so light after all – a review

/

English Theatre Leipzig’s production of Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind (TML) is an excellent reproduction of the famous Neo-Futurist play by writer, director and actor Greg Allen. High energy, controlled chaos with a strong reliance on audience participation, this is not your usual, sedate night out at the theater.

//

"English Theatre Leipzig (ETL) presents a new show, starting this week: Greg Allen's Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind. I had a few questions for director Emily Wessel about this unusual production - '30 plays in 60 minutes' - and what makes it so different to other stage formats."
