Trapped merges visual art, sound dialogue and dance in the form of four autobiographical solos, by artists pioneering integrated dance (combining dance techniques with mixed abilities) in South Africa.
The soloists appear simultaneously, each story intersecting and interacting with the others. Through their stories, the dancers use their disabilities as a catalyst to open dialogue around questions of belonging, especially for people living with disabilities in a non-integrated society.
Performed by: Andile Vellem, Zama Sonjica and Nadine Mckenzie; composition: Phil Thurston; sculpture: Enock Mpofu.
