Third World Bun Fight / Brett Bailey (South Africa)
Third World Bunfight has a mission to create and present groundbreaking, multi-layered, deeply considered performance and installation works of excellence, both locally and internationally. Works that show the beauty, the wonder, the darkness and the tragedy of our world.
The belief in the potential of art and performance to activate people, energise depressed situations, integrate the marginalised, transform and heal, underlies their ethos.
The works foreground issues, stories and situations that are all too often overlooked, suppressed or ignored. They unpack and expose the machinations of power that crush so many people or render them voiceless.
The main focus areas are the post-colonial situation in Africa, and historical and contemporary relations between Africa and the West.
