Isango Ensemble is a South African theatre company that draws its artists mainly from the townships surrounding Cape Town. Our stage productions and films have played to sold-out audiences across the world, and we’ve received numerous international awards. Isango’s productions re-imagine classics from the Western theatre canon, finding a new context for the stories within a South African or township setting thereby creating inventive work relevant to the heritage of the nation. Our company’s structure embraces artists at all stages of their creative development allowing senior artists to lead and contribute towards the growth of rising talents.
New Victory presents South Africa's Isango Ensemble, whose production interweaves Britten's ethereal opera of Shakespeare's most famous comedy with the rich choral traditions of African folklore.
