U’ya bizwa derives from a Zulu word that simply means “you are called”. The tale is about how the human body answers to a drum beat. There’s a spiritual connection/ bond between the two worlds. Does the body become receptive? Which world’s kiss is more dominant than the other? Is there a competition or do they simply coexist? Well, we are about to find out.

The purpose of the play is to clear the negative atmosphere surrounding religious issues. We choose what we want to believe in and we shouldn’t omit each other from it.  In this musical that we will exhume hidden agendas, but respect sacred episodes.

There are a lot of societal and religious feuds between the two worlds.

And this play aims to clarify the misconceptions. As humans it’s our personal choice to believe either world, and it’s within an individual to refute any misconceptions arising from their beliefs.

There is interdependence between the living and the dead. We are marrying the two together. The story was inspired by the late Catherine Mabidikane
