Drama for Life

Drama for Life, based at the University of the Witwatersrand, is an arts centre for social transformation and healing. We work closely with the founder and former Director, Warren Nebe and the current Head, Dr Petro Janse Van Vuuren.

Drama for Life is internationally recognised as representative of the University of the Witwatersrand’s unique postgraduate academic, research and community engagement division that brings together the disciplines of Applied Drama, Drama Education and Drama Therapy within the context of a critical reflexive praxis. Their ethos is driven by the key question: What does it mean to be human and how can we learn to be resilient, without compromising our humanity, as we engage with the enormous challenges of change in the 21st century?
