Specific motifs and notions are foregrounded, such as power-relations in families and society, gender, Afrikaner identity, disability theatre, the slave narrative, anti-patriarchal AIDS and breast cancer elegies, Cape Flats elegies, the discourse on decoloniality, as well as motifs and notions associated with liminality and rites of passage. Texts published shortly before and after the turn of the millennium are scrutinised.
