A Refugee Lives to Survive

A Congolese refugee manages to make it to South Africa, thousands of miles away, where she uses hope as a thin ladder, despite living through genocidal violence and rape. Based on a true story.

For one woman, 8-10 minutes.

Performed at the Ronald Feldman Gallery in NYC as a part of the Violence art show by Remember the Women Institute.

    This should be included in any festival on refugees and undocumented immigrants.
