Khululekani Emakhaya

In Uncategorized on August 1, 2011 at 11:38 am

Two weeks ago we went to watch a play called Khululekani Emakhaya.

It was put on by a group of young women at the University of the Western Cape. A series of monologues from each of the women, woven around the theme of “home”. We had the opportunity to sit in on their rehearsal and then to watch them perform the work after.

I can’t think of a clear enough way to describe how incredibly moving and humbling the experience was.

These women are all under the age of 25 and they have mastered the art of telling true and sometimes painful stories in a way that allows anyone watching to find a thread of themselves in the narrative. Storytelling at its finest. I can’t say much more really. A short documentary was made about them, you should watch it.
