About Mother Africa-Khayelitsha-My Home

Two million people call the Khayelitsha (the Xhosa word for 'new home') in South Africa home. The Township is plagued by endless power cuts, but nothing can get in the way of the rhythm and energy.

Dozens of acrobats, dancers, and musicians from seven African nations blend spectacular circus feats, shimmering costumes, and jaw-dropping dance, to bring the pulse of daily life in Khayelitsha to the West End.

26 on stage including 8 band, 2 singers/dancers and other artists.
