“Women Rising” is a performance project which includes a combination of verse, song/music and various styles of dance, around the central theme of expressing, honouring and celebrating the feminine; and, the need to strengthen and reclaim the authentic feminine identity. The project showcases a blend of professional and amateur performers, who are all committed to the overall ethos and intention of the production. The project creates a space which facilitates performance dialogue across age and gender. The professional performers participating in this performance project include: Melvin Peters Jazz Trio; Fiona Tozer; Samantha Landers, and the Linda Vargas Flamenco Dance Company.Women Rising is the result of a collaborative partnership between School of Education, UKZN, the Playhouse Company and UKZN Treasury Department.
