Are we more than our bodies?

Talking Souls explores the fragility of human life. This interdisciplinary performance weaves together vocal expression, visuals and physical movement. It presents rituals that help us transcend tangible reality, restoring hope, despite our fragility.

This international collaborative production will be directed by Mandla Mbothwe, the Fleur du Cap award winning Artist Director at the Steve Biko Centre.
