Dr Sara Matchett
production Womb of Fire addressed
how centuries of violence in South
Africa continue to play out on
women’s bodies.
Set against an episode from the
Indian epic The Mahabharata, the play
interweaves personal narrative and
contemporary realities with the lives
of two women – the first female bandit
slave Grote Katrijn van Pulicat and
Zara, a Khoekhoen servant woman
from the founding years of the
Cape Colony.
The exhibition included an
impressive body of photographs
accompanied by text panels and
a catalogue. Josephy investigated
parallels in the naming of “twin
towns” in South Africa and other
parts of the world, pairing images
of different locations that share the
same name, for instance, Delft in Cape
Town and Delft in The Netherlands.
Based at the Centre for Theatre,
Dance and Performance Studies,
