The objective of the musical production is to offer opportunities to develop skills and gain performing experience to vulnerable youth of Soweto. Youth with amazing talent but limited opportunities will share their culture with others. The production will engage 10-12 young urban dancers and musicians and create sustainable employment opportunities in South Africa and abroad. As an addition to the production, partnerships with performing arts centres in the UK will be established in order to offer dance workshops and talent exchange platforms.
Developed by Simply Soweto Encha members, under the artistic direction of Morgan Njobo, who have had the opportunities to see the world owing to their great talent and determination, the musical gives back to the community that raised Morgan, Lwazi, Zenzele, and Sbusiso. The spirit of Ubuntu lives on.
