After the successful inaugural edition of Writing from the Heart by renowned playwright and novelist Tony Perez in May 2014, Writing & Community once again, invites him to conduct a second interactive playwriting workshop this December. This series of workshops aims to: 

 

1. Unearth and inspire new playwriting enthusiasts from within the community. 

 

2. Share one of the region's best playwriting skills and expertise with the community. 

 

3. Develop new plays through a post-workshop mentorship and 

dramaturgy programme. 

 

Writing from the Heart is a 6-day workshop to be held at 72-13, Home of TheatreWorks. It will comprise a series of interactive hands-on exercises designed to enable participants to discover their inner self and creativity in exploring the basics of playwriting.

 

The May 2014 edition of the workshop discovered 30 new writers and gave them the basics in playwriting. Through a series of exercises which include drawing, dialogue and interpersonal interaction between participants, the mentor and within themselves, these exercises drew out the writers' potential from within. These discoveries became important material and inspiration for playwriting. 

 

From the group of 30, Tony is mentoring 12 writers, developing 12 new plays through this dramaturgy programme. The mentorship will conclude in end December 2014 and these new plays will be presented as a public dramatised reading in the first quarter of 2015. 

 

TheatreWorks hopes to seek out a new group of writers for this second workshop.

Mamela Nyamza / Mojisola Adebayo – SIFA 2014 / Double Bill: I Stand Corrected & Hatched

NewDance2009_9_Nyamza011.jpg

Performance (Double Bill)

28 – 30 August 2014
8pm

Advisory: Mature Theme (for 18 years and above)


Spirited South-African choreographer/performer Mamela Nyamza and British-Nigerian writer/performer Mojisola Adebayo tackle head-on contemporary questions of identity, gender and social freedom facing South Africa today in this highly-charged double bill.

I Stand Corrected is a dramatic story of rage and romance, where two women try to reach each other across the supernatural divide. It is a narrative of love above hate, freedom from fear, marriage over murder, resistance against rape…

Told through haunting and sometimes absurdly comic physical theatre, with seductive singing, dance, drama and music. Co-created, co-directed and co-performed by Mamela Nyamza and Mojisola Adebayo, I Stand Corrected is an artistic response to the violent epidemic of ‘corrective’ hate rape in South Africa. I Stand Corrected will touch you with its sheer energy and passionate cry for justice.

In Hatched, Nyamza transforms her own story into evocative dance-theatre. On a stage flooded with red cloth, two worlds collide as Nyamza’s life unravels: she is an artist and a mother. Combining South-African and Western dance vocabulary and music, Hatched articulates the poignant realities of grappling with one’s place in the world.

Awarded the Standard Chartered Bank's Young Artist Award for Dance in 2011, Mamela Nyamza's work considers the engendered body and the contemporary definition of dance.

Reflecting a broadly African aesthetic, Mojisola Adebayo's work tackles questions of power, identity, and change.

 
 

Nikhil Chopra – SIFA 2014 / Give Me Your Blood And I Will Give You Freedom

Performance

15 August 2014, 7pm – 17 August 2014, 9pm 

Ticket permits unlimited return visits, valid through 17 August 2014.

Advisory: Mature Theme (for 18 years and above)

 

In a powerful 50-hour performance specially commissioned by SIFA, performance artist Nikhil Chopra transforms a white canvas into breathtaking landscapes of black ink, in a vivid expression of India’s bloody fight for freedom against colonial rule.

 

1943: India in the midst of a war to free itself from 200 years of British rule. The charismatic leader Subhas Chandra Bose sounds a rallying cry — “give me your blood, and I will give you freedom.” A group of women answer the call, forming the all-female combat army, the Rani of Jhansi Regiment. This is the backdrop of Give Me Your Blood and I Will Give You Freedom.

 

At a time when World War II was ripping the world apart, Bose emerged as a controversial figure, photographed shaking hands with Hitler and giving allegiance to the Imperial Japanese Army as it made its way into Singapore, Indonesia and Burma. 

 

Performance artist Nikhil Chopra fleshes out the ominous passage of a bloody battle across 50 continuous hours. He assumes the character of a female warrior, Jhansi. In order to seek her freedom, she must be prepared to transform, shed her skin and ‘spill’ her blood. A masterful blend of theatre and visual art, Give Me Your Blood creates a live painting — a menacing metaphorical battleground — right before the audience’s eyes. In the climactic finale, Chopra emerges as a black monster, a queen, proclaiming her victory with her blood over a darkened stage. 

 

The audience can come and go throughout this durational performance. A live installation, the work is best re-visited over the 50 hours to enjoy its progress in relation to time.

This exhibition by award-winning South African photographer and visual activist Zanele Muholi presents bold portraiture of marginalised individuals from her home country. An ongoing series since 2007, Faces and Phases commemorates the lives of these individuals as Muholi captures the confidence, fearlessness and defiance of her subjects in a captivating visual history post-apartheid, while confronting stereotypes associated with gender and sexuality. Zanele Muholi is a 2013 Prince Claus Laureate.

“Zanele Muholi is a photographer and visual activist who affirms and celebrates the multiplicity of human identity and sexuality. Representing the black female body in an honest and compelling way, her intimate portrayal of love reveals beauty and tenderness, and asserts the joy of close relationships with radical and liberating energy.”
