Conceived and directed by Joburg City Theatres’ Artistic Director Makhaola Ndebele, Bantu is a brand new play that reflects on the writing, legacy and untimely death of the South African Black Consciousness leader Steve Biko.

Ndebele describes the new work as "composed of strong music and performances, with a driven cast of young South Africans who engage, and reflect, upon the levels of consciousness in present day South Africa". Timed to coincide with Heritage Month in South Africa, Bantu seeks to highlight possible lessons for a new generation of South Africans about how to build and contribute to a more humane global society and forms a part of Joburg Theatre's ongoing dedication to staging new productions that reflect on the legacy of South Africa's most prominent and influential leaders.

The new production stars a vibrant young and talented cast of local actors and performers including two-time Naledi Award nominee Katlego 'Kaygee' Letsholonyana (nominated for roles in Egoil and Itsoseng), actor, singer, dancer, performance artist, sangoma and LGBT activist Albert Silindokuhle Ibokwe Khoza (pictured centre) and pianist, rapper and composer Alpea.

Show starts at 20:00, 15:00 on Sundays. No performances on Mondays.
