This title was conceived and created just after his untimely death. Scores of great South African and international artists record and share what and how they learnt from Barney Simon. He was very well known for his famous 'orange exercise', which he devised and executed. Through this exercise he created, taught and expressed many profound principles of artistic expression. Through a single orange, he communicated lessons of detail, care and respect and so much more. As such there are 80 testaments from artists about his often-mysterious creative process. This title is essential for students and teachers of theatrical expression, and indeed for anyone who strives to understand their own voice. This title is a testament to Barney Simon and his work. With the passing of a decade of democracy in South Africa, The world in an orange is a record of the last years of apartheid and the role of the arts community in bringing about its decline.
