Sister Earth

Zabalaza Baxter 2013 Sister E Lorraine StaceyThe directorial debut of Ntombifuthi Mkhasibe for Jungle Theatre Company, Sister Earth is a coming of age story of a rural teenager who moves to a city to start anew. Filled with morals, values, dignity, pride and the law of nature, she holds the key that unlocks her ancestors’ guidelines for life. Subjected to peer pressure and materialism, she loses herself in the city and loses her connection to the earth. Struggling with her journey, she seeks to rediscover natural beauty and acceptance of being oneself.

“There is a lot awareness of how do you respect yourself as girl and that is needed by our communities big time …the nation needs those stories. I would love to see it being played at Ukhanyo [Primary] and Masi[phumelele] High.”  Yandiswa Mazwana eMzantsi carnival and community building project.

Created by an all female team including designer Monique Fagan, Sister Earth explores the challenges and consequences teenage girls face growing up with social pressures; cultural imperialism and the desire to be popular. The production debuted at the Zabalaza Festival, Baxter Theatre in 2013 and was performed in Vrygrond for ASSITEJ SA on Human Rights Day.
