Slave: A Question of Freedom

Slave: A Question of Freedom

This exceptional award-winning production tells Mende Nazer’s inspirational story.

Performed by an outstanding ensemble of eight actor-musicians it is a feast of storytelling, music and dance.

It celebrates Mende’s indomitable spirit, the beauty of the ancient Nuba culture, and as a famine of the inhumanity and horror of trafficking and modern slavery.

In the heart of the remote Nuba Mountains of Sudan, life is still a good fire around which stories are joyfully told, until the men on horseback come.

They murder and rape, burn the village and abduct the children to be sold into slavery. Twelve-year-old Mende was one of them.

In 2000, after seven years she was passed on to a diplomat’s family and trafficked to London.

She finally escaped only to face a new struggle for political asylum, and sanctuary.

Mende’s story transcends borders and her voice beckons us to consider the essence of freedom, and to question why fifty million people around the world are enslaved today.

Conceived and produced by Feelgood in 2010 for a national tour, this play was also performed in the House of Lords, won critical praise and many awards including: the first Human Trafficking Foundation Media Award, the Pete Postlethwaite Manchester Evening News Award, Best New Play, Arts Review Awards: Best Director, Best Actress and Best New Play.
