In April 2015, a student revolution at the University of Cape Town rocked South Africa and made waves around the world. The movement sought to bring down the statue of colonialist Cecil Rhodes, in protest of the white, Euro-centric cultural experience which dominated South African student life.

Rising from the #RhodesMustFall movement, The Fall - All Rhodes Lead to Decolonisation is a collaborative piece of theatre emerging from the heart of South Africa, written and performed by seven students who were involved in the uprising. Race, class, gender, sexism, colonialism and ideologies of patriarchy – core to global conversations and interventions today - are recounted in personal experiences and tackled head-on, seeking to unpack discrimination in all its forms.

The Fall is part of Big World, Up Close - a powerhouse performance series showcasing the most compelling new works from across the globe. Tapping urgent energies from Africa to the Middle East and Australia’s own shores, each piece in the series reveals profound and personal stories told by vital voices in music and theatre.
