Mmi’eva is a word that derives from the Setswana and isiZulu words meaning thorns, ( ‘Mmitlwa’ (Setswana) & ‘Ameva’ (IsiZulu)). Mmi’eva is a series of deconstructed monologues and poems performed by four women in the two respective languages. Mmi’eva explores the silences that abused women and children have had to endure from their loved ones, fathers, pastors, uncles and partners for the purposes of survival.
We are taken through a journey of a six-year-old, who has had to endure sexual abuse by her uncle, her mother’s older brother. She has continuously told her mother about these traumatizing events, only to discover that her mother has endured the same abuse from the same man for years.
