Description

In August 1956, over 20 000 women of all races marched in unison to the Union Buildings in Pretoria protesting against unjust apartheid pass laws. The march led to significant changes towards the emancipation of women. The 1986 stage production You Strike the Woman You Strike the Rock commemorated the 30th anniversary of that event. Now more than six decades on, this fresh new retrospective, adapted and directed by Matjamela Motloung for the Playhouse Actors Studio, asks how far have women’s rights progressed, and how much is still to be achieved? This gripping piece combines novel elements of fashion and photography with theatre.
