THE stage production, Ubuntu Nest - The Musical, is based on Makhubalo Ikaneng’s myth.
According to the myth, Ubuntu Nest is a magical nest where all souls go when we sleep.
It is at this nest that the souls get encouragement, inspiration and atonement.
This story is told with music, dance and narrative about ubuntu.
The cast and crew of this production are college students from Pietermaritzburg who are excited about the opportunity to grow in the industry.
“Working with the Creative Arts College was a great experience.
“We meant to encourage other professionals to work with colleges and universities to give young people in these institutions a platform to test what their learning in a professional environment,” Makhubalo Ikaneng, show director said.
