DANCE – THEATRE – MUSIC – FASHION

Where do you come from? How did you reach this place in your life? Where are you heading? Where is home?

A new twist on a 1000 year old fable, presenting great music and dance from South Africa, mixed with urban culture from London and Los Angeles.

Soweto, late 80s. A young man struggles against the security forces, confronts tribal tensions and deals with the death of his own mother. He falls in love with a girl from the wrong neighbourhood and together they decide to run away from home and everything they have ever known...

Where Is Home? is a universal tale, investigating themes of global human migration and displacement. In this quest for adventure, freedom and love, the characters seek their fortunes, experience war and oppression, fall in love, discover the price of fame, and travel to distant lands only to find that what they seek was right under their noses all along.

Choreography: Bafana Matea, Michael Joseph and Dumisani Ngubane. Original score: Steve Marshall and Grammy winner, Wouter Kellerman. Costumes: Natacha Lacosse (Acossi Jeans NY).

The show marks State of Emergency's 30th anniversary as a producer.
