Edu-Drama's 10 Year Anniversary
The Gender Equity Unit would like to cordially invite you toEdu-Drama's 10th Year Anniversary.
On 17 September 2016 Reclaiming the P… Word will be performed by some of the original cast members and writers as well as some of the newer performers. The aim is to show the legacy and power of the sisterhood that the process has created. Amongst the performers will be thedirector of the Gender Equity Unit, Dr Mary Hames as well as Professor Desiree Lewis from the Department of Women and Gender Studies.
This production was initiated in 2005 when students and staff at UWC came together with women from the community and work-shopped the theatre production. ‘Reclaiming the P… Word’ as a tool to protest against the endemic of violence against women in the country. All of the stories are written from real-life experiences which meant that the process of creating a production like this is an act of protest, agency and of healing.
Additional performances will be done by various productions such as Admission Reserved and#What'sLeftOut. Please find attached our invitation card we would like for you to place on UWC Communications, and your other various social media platforms.
