A colourful and spectacular two woman production exploring the life of a vulnerable child through movement, dance, music and dialogue.
The children of South Africa are abused every day, mostly by the most trusted people in their lives – their parents, their uncles and anyone who is in position of responsibility and trust. Most of these young children are threatened by their perpetrators which leads them to withdraw from other children; they become silenced and lose their self-esteem. Alcohol abuse in parents often is a major cause of the abuse. Many mothers deny the abuse, choosing to ignore it for socio-economic reasons.
This work explores this complex and difficult situation in a surprisingly entertaining and engaging manner, drawing the audience into its problematic subject through the use of a wide variety of stage techniques.
