DRAMA FOR LIFE | SOUTH AFRICA | 2010
Drama for Life – based at the Wits School of Arts of the University of the Witwatersrand, is dedicated to arts for social transformation and healing. Their unique programme of education prepares arts-based researchers, arts activists, theatre-makers, performance artists, directors, applied drama and theatre facilitators, drama educators, arts educators, drama therapists and expressive-arts therapists to create interventions, performances, rituals and processes that skilfully and appropriately address social transformation and healing in a wide range of education, health and social contexts.
Clowns Without Borders performed “Siyasabenza!”, at the Drama For Life Festival in Johannesburg. The festival, Sex Actually, is part of an ongoing programme to use the arts as a means of addressing issues in our communities due HIV/AIDS. This will be the second year in a row for Clowns Without Borders to participate in this wonderful event. “Siyasebenza!” is a rip-roaring physical comedy about work and relationships in South African daily life turning our everyday struggles and triumphs upside-down. “Siyasebenza!” brings laughter to a fever pitch while playing through themes of HIV/AIDS, poverty, xenophobia, gender, and violence to simultaneously entertain and provoke audiences of all ages.
