Gates of Hell by Fana Tshabalala
Beyond every point is a sense of discovery and what we discover at one point in time determines our perception of future discoveries. Therefore it is our past experience that fully allows us to appreciate the future we discover\; resulting in a change of direction both physically and mentally. Two souls find themselves beyond and within the unknown, where vision is limited and language foreign. This is a place where discovery transforms humanity and revolutionises self - a place of familiarity and exploration.
Uncle stans jane and john doe by Mari-Louise Basson
This piece tackles the huge and overwhelming effects of child sexual abuse and how it plays a role at later stages of their lives and how this unforgivable act of crime moulds the lives, behaviour and relationships of its victims.
Imbokodo by Mdu Mtshali
Imbokodo is about interpersonal, personal and community. It deals with issue of identity, rape, acceptance, growing tension, skin, AIDS, silent communication of individuals, tolerance and approval. “Let the words of my mouth project the truth”
