The true story of one refugee’s epic quest across Africa, brought to life with music from the world-renowned Isango Ensemble.
Asad is a young Somali refugee with a painful past, miraculously good luck and a brilliant head for business. After years in a refugee camp and then learning to hustle in the streets of Ethiopia, he sets off for the promised land of South Africa. But when he arrives, he discovers the violent reality of life in the townships – and his adventures really begin.
The critically-acclaimed South African Isango Ensemble return to the Young Vic after the Olivier Award-winning The Magic Flute. This adaptation of Jonny Steinberg’s riveting book is told through roof-lifting songs and dance accompanied on the marimba.
A collaboration with the Royal Opera House.
“An extraordinarily thrilling ensemble”
“A powerful testiment to the resilience of humanty”
“Reading Baraka’s script today is like watching an expert butcher at his bloody chopping block.” – The New Yorker
