A story about the rhythms that connect us across time and continents

In South Africa, “ubuntu” refers to the spirit of community and the belief that humanity is tied together. In this collective creation, a young Canadian woman begins to unravel the legacy of her mother, when she meets a young South African man searching for his father. Drawn together by chance and circumstance, they relentlessly pursue the truth, only to realize it will turn their lives upside down. Through spirited storytelling, music and dance, this international collaboration of Canadian and South African artists traces the ties that bind us all.

A co-production with Citadel Theatre

Running time: 95 minutes
There is NO intermission during this show.

“The brilliant physicality, the imaginative scene transformations, and the sterling performances by the three Canadian and two South African actors make Ubuntu (The Cape Town Project) a poignant and exhilarating theatrical experience, both at the same time. - The New Classical FM, Toronto


Bob says: “This is a truly exciting project that has been produced all over the country. It’s a succinct illustration that, despite seemingly huge differences, the connection between us – no matter where we are – is incredibly strong, regardless of different belief systems or the crossing lines of family dynamics. And it’s so imaginatively staged, it’s not just a great story, it’s also a theatrical event.”
