We have inherited a schooling system that socialises us into conditioned thinking, regimentation and conformity. UnEducated explores the role of education in identity formation - suggesting that pedagogy not only prescribes ways of receiving and making knowledge, but can also restrict individuality and creativity.
This multi-genre performance poses significant questions: “Can our education system begin to free us as Africans? Can the education system reform or transform itself from within? Is the education system so bound up with neo-colonialism that we must seek alternative paths to learn and teach?”
Directed by: Faniswa Yisa; performed by: Jacqueline Manyaapelo and Khayalethu Witbooi, with Malik Ntone Edjabe; project management: Chumisa Ndakisa.
