“I was a girl and that was something to be”
Full Stops On Your Face (FSOYF) is written, directed and designed by 2014 Fleur du Cap winner, Penny Youngleson. FSOYF speaks to the rapid rising incidences of gendered violence and social neglect in a local and international context.
In this solo theatre performance a South African female takes an aggressive stance in response to her outrage at the violence endured by women. FSOYF features the captivating Iman Isaacs, who transitions smoothly between 5 different characters. Not once losing the attention of the audience.
Isaacs’ performance is unapologetic and the script innovative. With this one-woman show Isaacs takes the audience on a journey through the narrative landscape in which the protagonist and the other characters find themselves, an uneasily familiar setting. A community filled with unchecked violence and where words are used as weapons.
Full Stops On Your Face is a must see!
