Playwright, filmmaker and poet Zodwa Nyoni gives a talk on ritual theatre with reference to Home has Died (2012), a one-woman performance about migration, death and displacement.
Written and performed by Zodwa as part of the Lift Off Festival the performance is set in Zimbabwe at the funeral of her grandmother. Told through poetry, dance and singing the piece is a moment of collective mourning for family in the diaspora, who symbolically have lost another connection to Zimbabwe. The piece examines place versus home and a yearning to belong.
