Registration | Midway West

Performance - ULWEMBU | Grand Ballroom

ULWEMBU is a collaborative documentary-theatre project, that brings together citizens and civil society to engage the interface between street-level drug-dependency, policing and mental health in the city of Durban, South Africa. The play’s main purpose is to make visible the invisible life worlds of highly vulnerable people in Durban and its surrounds as well as create new social learning opportunities for the Police, Department of Health, NGOs, families of users, and other groups. ULWEMBU is a profound experience that allows participants to immerse themselves empathetically into very complex learning environments.
