At Her Feet is a one-woman play that effortlessly combines monologue, hip-hop and poetry to evoke the experiences of four muslim women in Cape Town whose lives are profoundly touched by the events of September 11 2001 and an 'honour killing' in Jordan. These events lead them to tell their own emotive, funny and painful stories.
