Soulclap to Save Darfur for introducing us to Rebecca Davis, an entrepreneur, dancer and activist who has used the arts to bring attention to violence against women in Darfur. As Creative Director of her own ballet company, Rebecca choreographed and premiered the first contemporary ballet about the conflict in Sudan, entitled DARFUR - the proceeds of which fund humanitarian work in-country.
In DARFUR, a woman is brutally raped by a group of Janjaweed soldiers. The ballet explores both the attack itself and the long-term emotional and relational repercussions of her attack. Through dance, Rebecca educates her audience about this important issue.
