Performance: “Souvenirs” – torture remembered ‘live’ on stage in Bath

"Torture, hatred and political rhetoricstoke the flames."

“Torture, hatred and political rhetoric
stoke the flames.”

Hasani, who writes protest poetry and advocates for recognition of human rights and justice in his homeland, Zimbabwe, was recently on stage at the Bath Literary Festival as a cast member for the play “Souvenirs”.  The piece was written by the cast, all members of Freedom from Torture’s creative writing group – Write to Life.  

The following is a link to the article Hasani wrote for The Independent about taking part in the performance:
