Performance: Africa’s Hope
Description: Africa’s Hope addresses the subject of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi through the eyes of a child. Lasting 100 minutes, to symbolise the 100 days of the Genocide, the play is Mashirika’s biggest production to date, having been cast before a 25,000-strong crowd at the 10th Genocide commemoration. Hope Azeda, the founder and artistic director of Mashirika, wrote the play, with inspiration from personal testimonies and experiences pieced together from Genocide survivors.
