Lights Up commission
Sabrina was commissioned as part of Lights Up in November 2020 to create a piece of work on the theme of ‘relationships’.
Sabrina has written a theatre piece for Zoom, performed 11 & 12 December 2020.
At an intergenerational gathering of the women in her family, a night before her wedding, bride to be Namatama partakes in age old ritual, receiving no holds barred wisdoms of sexual satisfaction every bride should know. New to this club she will also be entrusted with secrets. But with an age old family rift, should all secrets be told?
