Intergenerational dialogue at SAWAF 2012The Playhouse Company
The popular Women in Dialogue session returns to the South African Women's Arts Festival at 3pm on 4 August 2012.
The Playhouse Company's 16th South African Women's Arts Festival (SAWAF) runs at The Playhouse in Durban from Friday, 3 August until Sunday, 11 August 2012.
The Women in Dialogue session is a regular and important feature at SAWAF, and this year Nancy Richards will lead a panel discussion on 'Nation building'. Panelists include: First Lady, Thobeka Zuma; MEC of Arts, Culture, Sport & Recreation for KZN, Ntombikayise Sibhidla-Saphetha; eThekwini Deputy Mayor, Nomvuzo Tshabalala; Duma Ndlovu; and Thato Tsautse. This session allows attendees to make their own contributions to the discussion, resulting in an environment where dialogue is created, ideas are exchanged and expertise is shared.
"The Women in Dialogue session is one of the most powerful agents with the potential for change at the South African Women's Arts Festival," says Playhouse Company Chief Executive and Artistic Director, Linda Bukhosini. "This session gives ordinary South African women a voice to be heard by some of our country's leading decision-makers."
The Women in Dialogue session begins at 15h00 in the Playhouse Drama Theatre on 4 August. Admission is free, but registration is required.
SAWAF, held during Women's Month every year, has a long history of supporting women's arts and creating valuable dialogue, whilst showcasing cutting edge productions. This year's festival comprises an exciting mix of drama, poetry, dance and music. Through these productions, SAWAF seeks to highlight important issues that affect the lives of contemporary South African women, and celebrate their triumphs.
