Stellenbosch University has officially renamed the HB Thom Theatre after the iconic award winning writer, Adam Small. The university says the name change forms part of a process of visual redress and renewal of public spaces, symbols, buildings and facilities. Spokesperson, Martin Viljoen, says the newly renovated theatre complex has been re-opened and will now be a multifunctional facility which includes, a large auditorium, a seminar room and a smaller laboratory theatre. Viljoen says the adjacent Drama Department will now for the first time functionally join the theatre complex: “Although the name HB Thom Theatre will no longer be used, it will be contextualised in the refurbished building.”We are naming this theatre complex after Adam Small to recognise him as one of our greatest thinkers and authors, and as someone with a moral conscience and a critical voice during Apartheid. So its about recognition, redress and reconciliation.”
