Forbidden Knowledge Thulani follows on the play Forbidden Knowledge that premiered at the Joburg Theatre Youth Development Unit. A narrative that addressed pertinent issues regarding violence, xenophobia and the ideology of freedom.
The Forbidden Knowledge has been selected to partake at the Zwakala Festival. Forbidden Knowledge Thulani builds on this narrative. The play uses monologues and dance to tell stories about alienation and mental illness/distress as a result of the society we live in. It deals with the themes of sexual and physical abuse, abandonment (fatherless households), mental illness, sexuality, intimacy, fear of intimacy, among others.
