Isango Ensemble is a South African theatre company that draws its artists 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 township setting, thereby creating inventive work relevant...

“The Isango Ensemble, one of the world’s most unusual, interesting and important theater and opera companies, doesn’t distinguish between African theater and European opera.”
Mark Swed, The LA Times
“Spirited, wrenching, and often sublime… [The ensemble] is part of what makes the show so powerful… With their frank and flexible acting, they show how easily a person might slide from vulnerability to cruelty… A reminder of what a mighty force empathy in the theater can be.”
Alexis Soloski, The New York Times
“Music is the story. Isango Ensemble is a marvel.”
Susannah Clapp, The Guardian
“I am captivated by the ensembles extraordinary versatility and the sheer joy each performer brings to each production.”
Sunday Times, South Africa
“It is, quite simply, an example of artistry of the highest form. Miss it at your own peril. See it and you will not soon forget it.”
