Living in a time where they find themselves endangered, the women of Ubukho-Ville conjure alternative ways to stay alive and ways to demand space in their communities. The fury the women of Ubukho-Ville feel, due to the injustices cast upon their bodies, gives birth to the spirits of uNogwaja and uMvundla. uNogwaja and uMvundla refer to themselves as ‘the carriers of news’ and ‘the alchemists’. They re-tell the tale of the women of this land, and disrupt the ‘peace’ when they offer the women of Ubukho-Ville a remedy.
