Thursday and Friday, March 2 and 3
Wits Amphitheatre, 7pm: Fana Tshabalala presents In The Heart of the Country, a collaboration with Constanza Macras/Dorky Park from Berlin, Germany. It is a physical exploration inspired by the “impossible dialogue” between blacks and whites as detailed in JM Coetzee’s literature and Njabulo Ndebele’s book, Rediscovery of the Ordinary.
Wits Theatre, 8pm: Gaby Saranouffi (Madagascar), Desiré Davids (South Africa) and Edna Jaime (Mozambique) present LADY, LADY in which they share, search, explore and exchange their realities in order to give voice to various commonalities, challenges and images.
The Nunnery at 9pm: Down to Earth by Kieron Jina and Marc Philipp Gabriel deals with constructed identities that are shaped by more and more complex constellations, rather than geographical origins and social upbringing.
