A journey to a new world full of song and discovery. When faced with a new culture, visiting a new place, what do you bring with you? What do you leave behind?

This international collaboration brings together original music intertwined with traditional South African and Geordie songs, verbatim testimony and storytelling.

This World Here…Nomhlaba Le will take you on a journey exploring community and belonging, celebrating diversity and uncovering our unconscious biases. Asking…where is home?

Created and performed by:
Sanele Mzimela, Phelelani Mzimela, Velaphi Mthimkulu, Samu Khumalo, Sam Bell, Alice Blundell and Stan Hodgson
Directed by Amy Golding
