Benefits to the broader community
RFTL is a project addressing a global issue of self-sustainability, conscientising people to prevent HIV AIDS, and developing the moral responsibility and health of communities. RFTL has the potential for further regional, national and international impact via performance, TV broadcast and DVD sales of the performance.
After the premiere we plan to perform Requiem for the Living in major centres to raise awareness of critical need and to build co-operation between privileged and disadvantaged communities. RFTL aims to channel any funds over and above the production cost towards support of a beneficiary called the Siyakhana Food Garden Permaculture Project, a WITS Health Department Initiative which is educational and entrepreneurial, supporting the needy in the inner city of Johannesburg.
