About the Artists

Isango Ensemble is a South African theatre company that draws its artists mainly from the townships surrounding Cape Town. Isango’s stage productions and films have played to sold-out audiences across the world and have received numerous international awards. Isango’s productions reimagine 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. Isango’s structure embraces artists at all stages of their creative development, allowing senior artists to lead and contribute towards the growth of rising talents. Isango Ensemble is committed to creating accessible theatre for South Africans and to contributing to building a truly mixed audience, reflecting and uniting a diverse South African nation.
