Macbeth

A SNAKE GIVES BIRTH TO A SNAKE follows a group of South African actors, an American director, and a legendary composer

A snake gives birth to a snake: theatre as a tool to heal social conflict

Can we forgive the past to survive the future? This was the question Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu asked of the South African people after a brutal half-century of Apartheid. For a moment in time, the country said yes. From 1996 to 1999, victims and perpetrators told their stories face-to-face before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The world watched in amazement as the truth of a nation was placed on the table, averting an expected bloodbath. Then the headlines faded, as did the idea.

A new type of activism is emerging that uses an unusual weapon to condemn injustice; laughter.

Send in the clowns: humour as a weapon

A new type of activism is emerging that uses an unusual weapon to condemn injustice; laughter. We follow some of this new generation of activists to see what they do and if it works. In Europe the ironically named 'Save the Rich' and the 'Yes Men' are trying to raise awareness of social issues through humour. But mocking the system can be a dangerous activity in some parts of the world. We also meet Syrians making sketches as the bombs fall around them; their comedy is a a form of resistance but and also an appeal to the international community to intervene.

Marina Abramovic: the artist is present
