Are the people in their boats struggling to survive or have they given up? Are the boats just emerging from the water, or are they in the process of sinking? In Passage, ebb and flow are metaphors for all those who have come from or to South Africa – as soldiers, workers, slaves, or stateless persons forcibly recruited by the colonial powers. But the title Passage also refers to the fact that every journey has a beginning and an end – a bitter realization that is at the same time comforting.
