The MotherTongue Project

We are a collective of women artists, activists, academics and practitioners committed to personal and social transformation through participatory theatre and integrated arts methodologies

featured production
Womb of Fire

Womb of Fire is the starting point for an examination of the performing female body as the site of disruption where the body itself challenges the borders and boundaries of the body politic. The play uses a non-Western mythical frame. Personal, historical and political intersections flesh out and localise the myth of Draupadi from the Mahabharata, expanding the moment featuring Queen Draupadi that began the epic war.

current project
Langeberg Youth Arts Project

The Mothertongue Project has, since 2012, been implementing programmes in the region. Our focus is on developing creative expression, leadership and entrepreneurial skills amongst young men and women. We see our involvement as one that grows and develops over time with the McGregor, Robertson, Nkqubela, and surrounding farm community networks.
