The Sibikwa Arts Centre sponsored by TotalEnergies are excited to announce that the Sibikwa Sisters will be kick-starting the year with a tour of their newest production IFINDO – THE KNOT.
Most women dream of their wedding before they even find their life partner. In the African culture, finding the love of your life and planning your dream wedding are not the only components required in officially uniting the couple, their families and communities. For centuries, lobola negotiations have also had to take place. But have we considered what role lobola plays or the role we want it to play in contemporary South Africa? And what lobola symbolizes when a union has to be put on hold due to a lack of the resources required for the negotiations to take place?
IFINDO – THE KNOT follows the love story of SHE and HE. A couple head over heels in love, trying to navigate their way around the process of spending the rest of their lives together and the implications that seem to arise. A compelling production that uses dialogue, movement and soundscape to engage the audience as the story of the young couple unfolds. IFINDO will leave you with questions and perhaps some answers by igniting conversations about the practice of lobola in contemporary South Africa.
IFINDO – THE KNOT is a 50-minute performance designed to be performed anywhere in Gauteng in an indoor space for a minimum of 50 audience members. The admission fee is R50 per person. There will also be a post-performance discussion with the creative team after each of the performances. The tour commences on 13 March and concludes on 5 April 2023.
