THABA BOSIU – THE MUSICAL
Cabaret & Musical Theatre / Great Hall

What if bo-nkgono-nkgono re-birth themselves as this mountain we can climb, see, hear, touch, and feel? Could it be that through dipina, diboko, dithoko, difela le ditshomo bo-nkgono-nkgono re-birth and reincarnate as Thaba Bosiu (the-mountain-of-the-night)...to display a rainbow of diverse cultures and traditions that are a cross between the existence, experience, screams and dreams of Morena Moshoeshoe (I) the founder of Batho-Ba-Sootho?

 

Is it possible for bo-nkgono-nkgono through narrative myths and magic to mirror the imaginative face of Morena Moshoeshoe (I), the one who drew together the scattered Sotho peoples who had been driven apart by both the Zulu and Ndebele raids, and created Lesotho, the Basotho Kingdom.

 

Imagine three strong feminine voices re-tell of Thaba Bosiu (the-mountain-of-the-night) echoing to us to go tell it on the mountain! For the mountain remains the same — unstoppable, unchangeable, and unmovable. Then imagine if one day the Thaba Bosiu (the-mountain-of-the-night) turns around to bite, push, and throw you back down...so damn hard that you recoil with pride in who your people are.
