(UN)BRIDALED (RE)MIXED is a new, collaborative dance theater show choreographed and directed by award-winning choreographer, Marina Magalhães, as part of her artist residency at Witswatersrand University, to be shared at Drama For Life's Human Rights & Social Justice Season. The work is based on Magalhães's latest work which was hailed as "the type of show that keeps concert dance relevant in our lives" by LA Dance Review. (UN)BRIDALED invites the audience into the hilariously defiant and deeply moving stories of young women on the precipice of change.
The Drama For Life Human Rights and Social Justice Project started in 2009 as the “Drama for Life Zimbabwe Project”. The project aimed to contribute at normalising the Zimbabwean social and political situation, as well as promote democracy. The project targeted Zimbabweans living in diaspora, as well as those living in the country. Realising that Human Rights and Social Justice are topics that also need to be discussed in a South African and African context, DFL decided to change the project’s title to “Human Rights and Social Justice Project” to be more inclusive. The Human Rights and Social Justice season 2016 will feature productions to be directed by Lidija Marelic, Marina Magalhães, and Refiloe Lepere tackling themes around women's rights, identity, and migration.
