Student Activism and Performance in The Fall

On Friday November 2, students in Dr. Rippy’s EN321: Modern Drama course visited Studio Theater in D.C. to see Oarabile Ditsele, Ameera Conrad, Sizwesandile Mnisi, Tankiso Mamabolo, Cleo Raatus, Zandile-Izandi Madliwa and Sihle Mnqwazana perform in their drama,¬†The Fall. Examining student activism around apartheid-era monuments in post-apartheid South Africa, The Fall¬†tells the complex story of identity politics, institutionalized racism, and the many voices at work in the student protests that rocked the University of Cape Town in 2015.

Students brave wind and rain for THE FALL!
