"Blood Knot is the story of two South African brothers whose lives are twisted by the madness of apartheid…. The powerful allegorical story continues to resonate deeply in a world still unable to deal openly with issues of race and wracked by seismic shifts in response to social injustice from the Arab Spring to Occupy Wall Street. Featuring J. Alphonse Nicholson and Lucius Robinson, and directed by Joseph Megel."
Acts of Witness features two theatrical events about living under social injustice, performed in rotating rep: Blood Knot, a classic play by Tony Award-winning playwright Athol Fugard, and Poetic Portraits of a Revolution, a world-premiere multimedia slam poetry performance by Chapel Hill’s Sacrificial Poets.
