TALK N DO
In a country like ours with little or no respect for the rule of law and where sometimes the laws that govern the state when it comes to issues of criminal justice and anticorruption seemingly favors the corrupt while the uncorrupted bears the brunt for trying to stay true, following due process. Citizens on the other hand stand and watch their rights trampled upon on a daily basis, but would rather not speak for the fear of victimization while persons with disabilities are left in a world of their own. TALK ‘N’ DO is a socio-political musical theatre piece that discusses the role of citizens in the bid to strengthen anti-corruption laws in the country. Driven by music, dance, drama, poetry, and pictures, this captivating performance discusses issues around sexual and gender-based violence, child right, vulnerable and people with disability proffering solution and where to receive help.
