Hillbrowfication is a project by Constanza Macras | Dorkypark and 21 children and young people, ranging from the ages of 5 to 22, from the Hillbrow Theatre Project in collaboration with choreographer Lisi Estaras and costume designer Roman Handt. The work explores a Hillbrow of the future – to challenge and inspire the young cast to reimagine their neighbourhood and to develop a dance piece based on their perceptions and experiences of xenophobia and violence in the city.
The work premieres at the Hillbrow Theatre as part of the 30th anniversary of the Dance Umbrella Festival and will then perform at the Maxim Gorki Theatre, Berlin, in mid-2018.
A production by Constanza Macras | Dorkypark and the Hillbrow Theatre Project (Outreach Foundation) In co-production with Maxim Gorki Theater Berlin and with the support of the Goethe-Institut. Funded by the TURN Fund of the German Federal Cultural Foundation.
