Fresh from its resounding success at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, having received two top awards and multiple five-star reviews, docu-drama The Fall lands in Melbourne for its Australian debut.
In April 2015, a student revolution at the University of Cape Town rocked South Africa and made waves around the world. The movement sought to bring down the statue of colonialist Cecil Rhodes, in protest of the white, Euro-centric cultural experience which dominated South African student life.
Rising from the #RhodesMustFall movement, this collaborative piece of theatre emerges from the heart of South Africa, written and performed by seven students who were involved in the uprising. Race, class, gender, sexism, colonialism and ideologies of patriarchy – core to global conversations and interventions today - are recounted in personal experiences and tackled head-on, seeking to unpack discrimination in all its forms.
