(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Kim, a naive, poorly educated English girl, is enjoying the delights of London in the `Swinging Sixties' when a chance encounter takes her on a journey to South Africa. Travelling as an actor with a touring Shakespeare company, Kim is irrevocably drawn to the `beloved country', but her abhorrence of the oppressive system of apartheid forces her to return home. This experience changes the direction of her life, and now, having achieved a longed-for education, she is on a mission: to stop the spread of HIV. She creates the Themba HIV&AIDS Organisation in Johannesburg and recruits and trains young people from the townships to deliver a unique programme of interactive theatre workshops.
AUTHOR: Kim Hope is a freelance theatre practitioner and drama teacher. She founded the Themba HIV&AIDS Organisation in South Africa, and was its first Executive Director. The NGO trains young people to become 'actor-educators' and to use experiential theatre practices for HIV prevention and human rights. Kim has been an actor, theatre director, journalist, public relations officer, voice coach and fundraiser. She teaches drama and theatre skills to adults, and helps young people prepare for their auditions for drama schools. Kim completed her MA in Creative Writing at the University of Chichester in 2014. She lives in West Sussex, UK.
