Xhosa classic

■ The classic Buzani Ku Bawo is one of many stories that will be staged at the Artscape Theatre to share the Xhosa culture and language. Directed by Thokozile Ntshinga, Buzani Ku Bawo is a drama about love, family relationships and conflicts that arise when traditional expectations clash with changing values. The production, written by Witness K Tamsanqa, runs from now until Saturday July 29. Ms Ntshinga, director for Artscape’s Inclusive Arts Unit, said: “There are many of the isiXhosa classics that were written and shelved and we feel the messages that were brought by them are relevant now. By showcasing this classic, we want to show the difference in view of the youth to the older generation with particular reference to isiXhosa culture which does not always make sense to the youth when compared to the older generation.” The show is at 7pm during the week and 3pm on Saturdays. Ticket prices range from R40 to R80. Book at Artscape Dial-a-Seat on 021 421 7839 or Computicket. Pictured are Zwelakhe Moni and Lulamile Nikani in Buzani Ku Bawo.
