Speelheater Holland Studio recreates the legendary story of Nonqawuse, the young girl who prophesied that the Xhosa would be rid of their enemies if they killed their cattle and burned their grain. A migratory stork is one of the narrators in this vibrant revisiting of the story to determine if she really was the cause of the disaster that ensued. Audiences will be fascinated to discover if a bird with homes in both hemisphere is able to offer insight.


The production features powerful performances from highly experienced and skilled performers and puppeteers: Macebo Mavuso, Thami Mbongo and Roshina Ratnam.


They are supported by an exciting ensemble of young and talented perfomers, including Sisipho Mbopa, Sabelo Khosa, Xolela Tsili, Nancy Masaba and Sheralynn Addriaansz
