Eye of the Storm 2015: Performance

‘Of Cows, Women and War’ was written by Ajak Kwai (depicted) and Bagryana Popov, based on the unpublished book by Ajak Kwai, with music written by Kwai.

The stories touch on all the areas of Dinka people’s lives before and during the war in Sudan. Stories of landscapes and courting rituals, of family traditions and pride. Stories of forced marriage and why cows are a curse for girls. Stories of loss, and the high price women and children pay in war.

Performed by Ajak Kwai
Director/Dramaturg: Bagryana Popov
Music by Elliott Folvig and King Marong
Designed by Adrienne Chisolm
Assistant Director: Bridget Balodis
