Multiple award winning director and playwright Monageng Motshabi presents a lecture titled When Victim Plays Victim and the Perpetrator Goes for the Kill. The lecture will draw on Motshabi’s emotive staging of The Story I Am About to Tell the iconic play about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. In it he will explore how perpetrators and victims understand their roles in matters of reconciliation, and what forms their post-colonial identities take.
