Humble Heroes is an installation-performance, celebrating the lives of three iconic leaders who fought for freedom in our Country. Employing poetry, dance and music, the performance is presented in the form of a ceremony and concludes with the Xhosa ritual of Ukubekwa kwelitye - the laying of stones next to the caskets.
As part of a process of healing and remembrance, audience members are invited to participate and pay their respects to heroes Nelson Mandela, Chris Hani and Steve Biko.
