DRAMA FOR LIFE SEX ACTUALLY

Drama for Life is bringing critical, bold theatre into the public domain through its 9th annual Drama for Life Sex Actually Festival. Hosted at Wits University, the Drama for Life Sex Actually Festival is a cross-community arts education, activism and therapeutic intervention. The festival is curated in a way that allows arts practitioners and audience members to holistically engage with and interrogate the complexities surrounding themes of sex, sexuality, relationships, culture, gender, HIV and sexual reproductive health; within human rights and social justice discourse.

The Drama for Life Sex Actually Festival 2016 is asking; what does it mean to be vulnerable? Vulnerability is exposing, daunting, dangerous and deeply embodied in our understanding of what it means to be human, to feel, and to be witnessed by others.

This year we invite you to re-discover, re-imagine and re-ignite vulnerability in a city, and country, where bodies are painted with race-brushes, classed by bank statements, and violated by outdated patriarchal legacies.
