Isango Ensemble – A Man of Good Hope
“A Marvel” – The Guardian
“Spirited….wrenching and sublime” – The New York Times
Award-winning South African theatre company Isango Ensemble has garnered worldwide acclaim for vibrant productions that reimagine the classics in inventive new contexts. They stormed the world stage with thrilling productions that bring together music, dance, and theatre, all performed by a true ensemble cast.
Within Isango Ensemble's feast of music and dance there always runs a thread of fervent political commentary – A Man of Good Hope is no different. This story reflects current issues and political problems: refugees, xenophobia, and the violence of civil war; while the music imbues the viewer with "the resilience of humanity and the importance of hope."
