‘Through Positive Eyes’ now showing at Soweto Theatre

Get to the Soweto Theatre in Johannesburg between 20 and 30 August 2013 to see the inspiring play called Through Positive Eyes, a new piece of South African theatre, and you shall not be disappointed.

Through Positive Eyes is nestled in the Drama For Life Sex Actually Festival and its storytelling bridges the gap between real life and organic theatre making.

The new play also has the power to transform deeply personal testimony into a shared, indelibly theatrical experience.

Through Positive Eyes pays trubute to some of South Africa’s true heroes at the forefront of the HIV/AIDS battle, meaning individuals who have dedicated their lives to ensure that others are served and saved, yet whose names history might never record.

The play previewed to a select audience at the 2012 DFL Sex Actually Festival, and it featured at the Maitisong Festival in Botswana this year to considerable acclaim.

Through Positive Eyes is a collaboration between Drama for Life and Themba Interactive. The two partners are proud to present their production with the Art and Global Health Center at the University of California (Los Angeles), and internationally acclaimed photographer Gideon Mendel.

Drama for Life and Themba Interactive would like to express their gratitude for the photographs, the words, the stories, and the inspiration of Betty, Bhekisisa, Bongi, Chris, Gugu, Gladys, Lindiwe, Ludick, Mgladzo, Mlungisi, Phindile, and Zandi.

Drama for Life would like to thank its funders for making the project possible: Business and Arts South Africa, Flow Communicatons, ELM Mission, Deutsche Gesellschaft für internationale Beziehungen GmbH, ProHelvetia, Themba Trust UK, Wits Arts and Literature Experience, Wits School of Arts and the University of the Witwatersrand.
