Mamela (‘Listen’) follows a group of remarkable young women from the Eastern Cape of South Africa: the opinions, experiences and aspirations of those born towards the end of the Apartheid era, the “born-free” generation.

A fusion of European and African theatre, this cutting edge, verbatim piece is moving personal testimony and storytelling, with traditional dances and songs that complement the spoken word. It’s a compelling and uplifting narrative for the 21st century.

The show premiered at the National Arts Festival, Grahamstown in July 2013, receiving a Standard Bank Ovation Award for Innovation and Artistic Excellence.


There will be a short pre-show performance by young women from Salford who have been working with Tandem Theatre, Mamela cast, and director Amy Golding.
