More Details

Founded in 2000, Isango Ensemble creates performances with a distinctly South African flavour, either by re-imagining Western theatre classics or by creating new work reflecting their South African heritage.

Set in the modern-day South African township of Khayelitsha, with the libretto translated into the Xhosa regional language, the film was created by Mark Dornford-May, Pauline Malefane and other members of the ensemble.
