BODY POLITIC 5: IMMUNITY
Call for submissions!! Deadline 26th August
Body Politic has a date!
Please SHARE with friends and start thinking about the work in progress you want us to witness at#bodypolitic5immunity
Body Politic is a quarterly live performance event, founded by Louise Westerhout, which has at its heart a desire to site corporeal artistic experiment in time and space. We invite independent artists to bring their investigations, AS THEY ARE, to be authentically witnessed, to open discourse, to refuse crystallisation. Body Politic is an informal, queer normative space which illuminates ways performing artists address their bodies' complicity with, or resistance to, dominant social ideologies and structures. We acknowledge the body as a never-neutral site for conveying meaning; an always necessarily politicised site onto which meaning is inscribed.
"no amount of critical contextualizing or artist's insistence on intention can stabilize the language of the body."
27th September @ 7pm | 28th September @ 8pm

THE CRUCIFIXION OF AMAQHIRWA
Inspired by Arthur Miller's The Crucible
Directed by Awande Dube
R80 | R50 Students
Performed in Germany ( Donzdorf ), NAF Makhanda, the Jo'burg Theatre (space.com) and The Wits festival, The MovementRSA now brings The Crucifixion of Amaqhirwa to Cape Town.
A missing child, a poppet and a village left with questions. Since the beginning of time , man is driven to find meaning, to explain the inexplicable. This human condition coupled with the imagination, is the creative source for this absurd play. Located in a village kraal , the story deals with the sudden disappearance of young girls, which flings a community into an investigation founded upon suspicion , old wives' tales and mystical elements.
Performed by Sanelisiwe Jobodwana , Campbell Mean and Nyakallo Motlouge.
