Genre: Visual Art
Presented by Phizzical at Dublin International Theatre Festival
Intercultural Dialogue Award at The seventh International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival
Hearts and Eyes Theatre Company for Ncamisa! Kiss the Women and The Tricky Part (South Africa)
A favourite from the 2009 National Arts festival in Grahamstown, Ncamisa! Kiss The Women is the moving story of a football-playing Black lesbian in South Africa.
Translated from isiXhosa as “kiss the woman”, Ncamisa is punctuated with football, dance, song, sex and love. This one woman show suggests to kiss the women is better than killing them in a play about gay women’s experiences in the townships.
