“We are not angry enough”
In the aftermath of war, a group of women begin a new fight. They are not victims. They will be heard.
A vibrant, impassioned new play by one of South Africa’s boldest new playwrights; Free Falling Bird is a shot in the arm for contemporary South Africa. Amy Jephta plays fast and loose with Euripides’ The Trojan Women, remixing this classic with the language of free-form jazz, poetry, tragedy and spectacle. An astonishing anthem of defiance, raising urgent questions about race, female identity and violence.
Free Falling Bird is presented as a work in progress, developed and directed by the Bush Theatre’s Associate Dramaturg Rob Drummer. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
Tickets £12 (£10 concessions), including entry to SOLFATARA, available here.
