Moratiwa raises awareness on HIV/AIDS

One of the most celebrated female contemporary dancers and multimedia art director, Moratiwa Molema, showcased a life changing production titled, Of Mind And Matter at Maitisong on Saturday.

The production was mainly made to raise awareness on HIV/AIDS. The production is influenced by Barolong Mouwane’s poem titled aids (written in lowercase on purpose to show how people living and affected with AIDS were belittled and discriminated against in the community).

Moratiwa, as her fans know her, successfully put her imagination to the challenge, and skillfully shaped into to a beautiful piece.  She blended dance, movement, face expression and sound using her signatory multimedia projection incorporated with music to come up with a beautiful art piece.
