Acting Up In Zimbabwe
John Casken Lecture Theatre,
Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama
Thursday 9th March,
Silvanos Mudzvova is a Zimbabwean playwright, theatre director, filmmaker and activist. Through a range of different creative strategies, he has for several years been involved in the struggle for greater democracy and for LGBT rights in his home country. During 2017, Silvanos is based at the University of Manchester, as part of a year-long residency facilitated by the Artist Protection Fund, a programme of the New York-based Institute of International Education.
At this event, Silvanos will present an informal, illustrated talk about his work, and about the Zimbabwean contexts it has responded to. There will also be a Q&A discussion, enabling a dialogue to develop that could potentially inform Silvanos’s further activities while he is resident here in Manchester.
