Mhayise Productions would like to thank the African Culture Fund for their contribution towards the preparations of staging and presenting ABOMHLABA(THI).

ABOMHLABA(THI) features an abridged version of a full-length dance theatre piece inspired by the late Honourable Credo Mutwa’s stories around the creation of abantu, the earth, land and landless, the displacement of the black bodies and their continuous search for belonging in a land torn by political borders and boundaries.
