The Market Theatre presents Frontieres – a Pan-African testimonial about migration. A deeply thought-provoking piece, this is a must-see for the season. Catch it on stage from Friday, 14 June – Saturday,7 July 2019. 

What Is It?

The Market Theatre’s Contintental Season kicks off with Frontieres this month. Frontieres is a personal testimony of African migrants who have fled their native countries in hope of a better, more prosperous future. Performed with a unique ‘authenticity of voice’, the actors re-tell personal testimonies. These testimonies have been collected by writer and mentor director Bobby Rodwell. Testimonies from migrants from Zimbabwe, the DRC, Cameroon and Somalia provide a Pan African perspective on migration.

Ultimately, Frontieres asks: What impact does migration have on young people’s lives? And, how are they received in South Africa? 

Directed by first time theatre director Mmabatho Montsho, mentored by Bobby Rodwell.
