Nguvu Ya Mbegu: The Cleansing
An offshoot of the Abengcongolo Collective’s theatrical production entitled Nguvu Ya Mbegu, The Cleansing attempts to invite the ghosts of the 1921 Bulhoek massacre to unearth the traumas of the past. The aesthetic of this visceral, sensorial and transformative production draws on African traditions of storytelling – dance, song, music, and ensemble work. The voices of Abantwana Bomgquba (children of the earth) whisper into the ears of the present and future child, a reminder that they have never been alone. A reminder that it takes the weeds to grow the strength of a seed, regardless of the pain, and historical, racial and colonial injustices.
Mentored and directed by Mandla Mbothwe.
