Forbidden entry to heaven, respected tribal Chief Zanenvula calls on his ancestors for an explanation. Reviewing his life and actions as they advise, he begins to understand how he has offended the Spirit of Africa.
What did he do, and how can he redeem himself?
Fifteen performers and musicians from South Africa and the UK use elaborate body puppets, gauze screen effects, brilliant acting and wonderful songs in the latest visual feast from Dodgy Clutch. Elephant celebrates Ubuntu (humanity) through an enchanting exploration of the themes of captivity, freedom and redemption.
