Thaba Bosiu

Thaba Bosiu interrogates the influence of Eurocentric philosophies as an intervention towards African ancestral practice that has been existing for many moons. We get to understand the issues of this interventions through the character of Mohale whom finds himself between a spiritual warfare, culture, Christianity and African customs as the tale unfolds. Mohale is a young city boy who takes a journey to Quthing (Lesotho) to meet his father (Masimphane) for the first time in his life, in search of his identity and sense of belonging. we find him as a man who knows himself but he has to find a missing puzzle in his life. In the context of post-colonial South Africa, men are still battling with issues of masculinity and identity. There’s an ongoing trend of fatherless homesteads which still prevails. The discourse of Thababusiu explores those issues, which I myself have also been affected by.

What a fantastic show, there was so much authenticity about the story that blew my mind and the setting really brings you into the story and you’re also just so invested in the story.
