Reaching Out: The theatre of dreams

 The Big Issue South Africa 09 September 2019

Professor Jimmie Earl Perry seeks to change attitudes about HIV/AIDS in South Africa through theatre. The director of The Africa Centre for HIV and AIDS Management’s Educational Theatre and Creative Arts programme is using local actors to put on plays that ‘break the silence’ surrounding the taboo subject of HIV/AIDS. Earl Perry wants to get the message of HIV/AIDS management out to the Afrikaans community and to the country’s farm workers, hoping he can reach them through entertainment. (923 Words) - By Tarryn Brien
