Havel Prize Acceptance — Silvanos Mudzvova, 2017


In a country with only one, government-run television station, performing artist Silvanos Mudzvova uses the power of theater to give a "voice to the voiceless" in Zimbabwe. Despite the numerous arrests and torture he has faced at the hands of the Mugabe government, Silvanos continues to speak truth to power through his art. Silvanos was a 2017 Václav Havel International Prize for Creative Dissent laureate and accepted his award at the 2017 Oslo Freedom Forum.
