Pamela Nomvete is currently promoting her theatre production at the Johannesburg Civic Theatre, Braamfontein.

Actress, playwright and director Pamela Nomvete is currently promoting her theatre production Ngiyadansa.

The play is currently on stage at the Johannesburg Civic Theatre in Braamfontein, it is based on her memoir Dancing to the Beat of the Drum: In Search of My Spiritual Home.

The story follows Pamela's life in the public life, trying to find her roots, her abusive marriage, alcohol abuse and her finally accepting herself.

"When Pamela contacted me to be part of the play, I was honored because I had read her memoir," said actress and poet Lebo Mashile who plays one of the leads in Ngiyadansa.

Pamela (49) says her decision to write and direct the play stemmed from encouragement by friends and fans who had read her memoir.

"People kept saying this would be great in theatre and after a year of planning we finally did it. that’s  why  Iam back in the country, to create the type of craft that I love and hopefully resonates with many."

She has been out of Mzansi’s showbiz limelight for a while, making her mark in one of Britain’s top soapies, Coronation Street.

But Pamela Nomvete says South Africa remained her spiritual home and was never far from her heart.

Now she’s back, and this time she says it’s for good.

Ngiyadansa opened on the 30th of April and runs till 4 May at Joburg Theatre in Braamfontein, tickets cost R120
