ILIFA, THE INHERITANCE
A lively, interactive and highly entertaining family theatre show brings to life a richly themed story of self discovery and the unveiling of a great inheritance which appeals to all ages.
When Themba loses his grandfather he embarks on a bizarre adventure to unearth the vast inheritance that has been promised to him. With his mind firmly fixed on the wealth that is coming his way he sets off in search of the magical Mzantsi Tree where his treasure is being kept safe for him.
Part Alchemist, part Alice in Wonderland, the engaging story of Themba’s journey weaves a tale of excitement, danger, intrigue and a new reawakening to all things of true value. Inspired by the 40th anniversary of the National Arts Festival and the 20th anniversary of our democratic constitution this show uses interactive storytelling, dance, song, physical theatre and an array of unusual characters to unite the themes central to these events in a colorful, captivating, engaging and multilingual performance piece that appeals to an audience of all ages.
Many thanks to the generous contribution from The National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund (NLDTF) for the creation of this piece.
