Onweer is about the abusive relationship between a father and daughter and makes powerful social commentary on the justice system in South Africa. This rendition is multimodal and was created within COVID-19 restrictions, treated as part of a physical conceptual approach to Gender Based Violence. While topics such as GBV and Sexual Abuse are of paramount importance, and needs the spotlight especially now, scenes in this show may be triggering for some. Sound designed by Dean Balie and Lighting designed by Themba Stewert, this physical theatre interpretation is performed by 3rd Year Graduating students Enrico Hartzenberg and Abigail Williams, under the creative direction of Iman Isaacs.
In a first for the UCT CTDPS, the performance will be available via a live streaming on Thursday 12th November 2020.
