BHAMBATHA KAMANSINZA! (article first published : 2006-12-2)

In celebration of The Day of Reconciliation, Ikhwezi LeAfrika will present the musical epic Wars of Resistance Ö Bhambatha Kamancinza! at the BAT Centre for a short season from December 16 to 18 at 19h00.

This powerful and touching theatrical work is written and directed by Durbanís up-coming director Howard Msomi.

The production marks the 100th anniversary of the Bhambatha (Zulu) Uprisings of 1906. The Bhambatha KaMancinza Centenary Commemoration 2006 is an important historical tribute honouring what many consider as a major step in the liberation struggle and growth of national self-determination in South Africa.

Inkosi uBhambatha KaMancinza is considered a deserving hero, the epitome of the revived indomitable struggle against the intensity of colonial oppression in South Africa at the time. His resistance undoubtedly gave contribution to the modern day African political thought, consciousness and self-determination.

Bhambatha Kamancinza! is a music-driven, fast-paced story told by interweaving complex narratives to re-enact a highly stylised and unique approach to the true actualities of this time. Its unfolding has much educational, nation building, moral regenerative values and recreational aspects.

More information and bookings from the BAT Centre on 031 332 2213 / 082 502 9703.
