Our mission is to create African original children’s theatre inspiring, empowering and connecting young people’s hearts to care for nature, community and culture. We are an established NPO with more than 20 years’ experience. Our artistic team is skilled in creating, performing and facilitating theatre for children and families. Drawing on our diverse cultural heritage we find connections to our environment and human nature making theatre that brings together music, dance, masks, puppets, clowning and multi lingual storytelling. We make proudly South African theatre that speaks to our present experience; can powerfully inhabit non theatre spaces; is accessible to a broad audience and generates exciting future possibilities. Our management team supports the organisation in terms of compliance; project management; marketing; impact assessment; finances & fundraising. We are based in Muizenberg, Cape Town and tour to all over South Africa and beyond.
