A Faint Patch of Light – Qondiswa James (Zuid-Afrika)

A Faint Patch of Light is a story about the love and entanglement between two black women on the night before their violent death. The performance is an adaptation of Athol Fugard's 'Statements After a Arrest under the Immorality Act' (1972). It reveals the struggle of the black lesbian and queer community in the South African townships. Two women in bed, nude and naked and vulnerable share their hope, fear and love in their last night while their perpetrators stand in front of their house and call them outside
