Based on the book by Jonny Steinberg
Isango Ensemble / Young Vic
Directed by Mark Dornford-May
The musicians of the Olivier Award-winning, Cape Town-based Isango Ensemble are renowned for their ravishing adaptations of classic works, reimagining everything from Bizet to Britten to the Bible in a contemporary South African context. In A Man of Good Hope the company stays closer to home, taking up Jonny Steinberg’s riveting book about a young Somali refugee who fled his country’s civil war, only to find himself in a new violent reality in South Africa. Driven by Isango’s powerhouse vocals and signature marimba, this dynamic new work delivers a clear-eyed portrait of resilience amid the challenges of displacement.
