THOKOZANI NDABA GOODWILL AND ACTIVISM
My experiences as a young woman provided the scaffolding for the journey that led me to where I am. My journey was not an easy one, and at a very young age I found refuge in theatre, which helped me cope with traumatic experiences. I’m fortunate that my work is also my passion. From the time I was a little girl, I was the one entertaining others, as it was always my desire to make people happy and to make things better. Later in my life, I discovered applied drama (interactive theatre for therapeutic purposes). This made me realise how I could help transform, heal and make a difference in communities. My work as an applied drama and theatre practitioner has allowed me to be part of a process that makes a difference, and facilitates the development of skills that equip young women and alter their current realities. It’s so fulfilling to bear witness to the shift in people’s lives as a result of this, and in the change in the broader community as well.
