Third World Bunfight has a mission to create and present innovative, multi-layered, deeply considered performance and installation works of excellence, both locally and internationally; works that reveal the beauty, the wonder, the darkness and the tragedy of our world. Our belief in the potential of art and performance to activate people, energise depressed situations, integrate the marginalised, transform and heal, underlies our ethos. Our 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. Our main focus areas are the post-colonial situation in Africa, and historical and contemporary relations between Africa and the West. We have a strong orientation towards fostering and exposing the talents of both performers and non-performers from disadvantaged and previously disadvantaged communities. We have trained and worked with several thousand performers in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Haiti, New Zealand, Chile and several European countries."
Major support for the co-presentation of MACBETH has been provided to FringeArts by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, and to Opera Philadelphia by the William Penn Foundation and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
