Ubizo (The Calling), a piece which infuses both dance and physical theatre brining life to the truth and beauty of the African ritual, Ubizo.

This piece follows the story of a young man who has the
powers of his father’s ancestors bestowed upon him and now finds himself having to heed their call and search for his roots. However he is challenged by his Mother’s disapproval towards this pursuit.

Ubizo is inspired by the desire to remove the misconceptions that exist within society that surround most African rituals, that being, they are painful and brutal experiences. It also aims to inspire black people to not resist The Call leaning towards understanding one’s roots and beliefs but rather to embrace the call and all purposes embedded upon their souls.
