Clowns Without Borders South Africa will be performing “Siyasebenza!” at Celebrate Durban

Durban – Clowns Without Borders South Africa (CWBSA) will be performing at schools and community centres throughout the eThekwini Municipality as part of Celebrate Durban 2010.

Clowns Without Borders presents “Siyasebenza!” – a rip-roaring physical comedy about work and relationships in South African daily life. Combining physical comedy, clown theatre, traditional song and dance, and circus arts, ”Siyasebenza!” explores themes of HIV/AIDS, poverty, xenophobia, gender, and violence to simultaneously entertain and provoke audiences of all ages.

“Siyasebenza!” features professional local artists from KwaZulu-Natal as well as other regions of South Africa. It has recently toured in Underberg, Johannesburg, and Cape Town. During Celebrate Durban, Clowns Without Borders will be collaborating with local community organisations in the eThewkini Municipality to bring the celebration directly to children in marginalized areas.
