The Soweto Theatre is proud to announce a three-week musical tribute to culture luminary and godfather of South Africa theatre, Gibson Kente.
Where Robert Sobukwe, Mirriam Makeba and Nelson Mandela left an indelible mark on our imagination, the late Gibson Kente played an equally consequential role. Plays like ‘How Long’, ‘I Believe’ and ‘Too Late’ amongst many others spoke to the heart of what indigenous South Africans experienced under a repressive and foreign regime.
Gibson Kente is referred to as the father of township theatre. It is from the townships that legends like him have gone to influence the cultural, economic and political landscape of South Africa.
