February 2018 Supper Club
The 2018 Supper Club programme had a wonderful start with the legendary Fatima Dike taking the microphone on the storyteller’s easy chair at the District Six Museum’s Homecoming Centre. Playwright, performer, poet, cultural activist, educator and mentor, are some of the ways in which Fatima – Sis Fatts – has been described. The 2018 series is themed around ‘Conversations in and about our city’, and in thinking about this Sis Fatts shared her thoughts about what was happening in her hometown, Langa. She had been moved by current happenings in Langa: on that day lives had been lost as a result of shootings at the Langa taxi rank; earlier in the week she had facilitated a dialogue about the cultural sensitivity / insensitivity of the controversial film, Inxeba: The Wound. Thoughtful discussion emerged from her provocation in a reflective environment. Thank you Sis Fatts!
Sharing points of view at Supper Club, and inviting Fatima to end the session with her poem ‘Madam, please’ which she did. A fitting end to a lovely session.
