A stunning dance production drawing on Nguni mythology - part of Afrovibes Festival 2012.

Thirst depicts the fortunes and misfortunes of three water carriers from an African village that has run out of water. On an eventful journey to find the source of their dried-out river they encounter mysterious characters, riddles and provocations.

This is magical, innovative theatre based on Baldini’s The Water Carriers: a mythic tale resonating with both past and future, its ecological message chiming with our times. It’s enriched by dance, physical theatre, song and African storytelling.

Thirst was nominated for the Naledi Award 2010 for Best New South African Play.
