We Say Our Names When We Pray

We Say Our Names When We Pray explores the tapestry of four transgender identities across three different generations. The women navigate their lives in secret and gather at Madibuseng’s house as a form of communion to relieve themselves from the world’s violence. Their peace is disturbed when a massacre imposes itself on them and they are confronted with legal implications of being ‘men who cross-dress’.

The play confronts love, loss and the meandering routes of becoming. We Say Our Names When We Pray is a choreopoem that borrows from the African ritual and praise poems such as Ditlhaloso or Izithakazelo. It encapsulates heightened text and movement through physical theatre
