Third World Bunfight (South Africa)
THIRD WORLD BUNFIGHT (‘TWB’) is a performance company that has maintained its position at the forefront of South African performance throughout its nineteen-year history.
TWB presents the diverse works of South African artist, Brett Bailey: theatre productions, installations, operas, house music shows, and site-specific performances. His idiosyncratic, iconoclastic works focus a probing lens on the world we live in; in particular the post-colonial landscape of Africa, and the historical and contemporary relations between Africa and the West.
The company 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.
