Drama Workshops in February - exploring issues within the township

During February we were incredibly lucky to have Standard Bank Young Artist of the Year 2017, Monageng “Vice” Motshabi come to the Piet Patsa Arts Centre, Free State and work with our young people in drama and helping them to tell their stories.

Taking issues prevalent and important to them in the township they split into smaller groups to create 15 minute short performances based around themes of alcohol abuse and sexual assault.

They then performed these shorts to each other and also their parents, carers and families in a performance in the township.
