About this show

Elephant, both a poignant theatrical work and a visual feast of African song and exultant tribal dance, is a co-production between Dodgy Clutch of the UK and Johannesburg's Market Theatre, creators of the Broadway hit musical Sarafina (1988 Tony® Award nomination for Best Musical). Multi-talented performers from the UK and South Africa come together to present a powerful tale of family, redemption and 'Ubuntu' (humanity). Featuring enormous elephant puppets that are unbelievably lifelike and tender, Elephant is a "spectacular foray into cross-cultural story-telling, music-making and physical theatre...a vivid saga that is engagingly, movingly universal." (The Herald, UK)
