British-Nigerian playwright Mojisola Adebayo collaborates with South African dancer Mamela Nyamza on a physical theatre piece, 'I Stand Corrected', about two black African lesbian lovers. Created as a response to the epidemic of 'corrective' rapes of gay women in South Africa, as well as the anti-gay marriage lobby in Britain, the piece uses text, dance, music and comedy to tell its story. Nyamza is an unconventional choreographer, using her background in ballet, contemporary and African dance to take on political themes. She has performed in London before, appearing at Dance Umbrella festival last year, and was recently voted one of the world's 25 most groundbreaking women by the South African edition of Oprah Magazine.
