What does it mean to be the "Hero of the people" in a valley terrorised by a great snake? The lost son of the chief must find his way back home and reclaim his birthright. Told through a cast of puppets, exquisitely designed by The Masiphumelele Community Theatre group and produced by The Handspring Puppet Company, this production of a traditional Xhosa tale captivates and engages.

By mid-1910, the race to be first to the South Pole had intensified after Shackleton’s ‘furthest South’ in 1909. Robert Scott (Royal Navy) believed he would be first, but found himself facing supreme polar explorer, Roald Amundsen from Norway. In this presentation, Amundsen’s preparation, previous experience and planning are discussed, along with his expert use of dogs. Amundsen reached the South Pole on 14 December 1911 – Scott followed 34 days later on 17 January 1912. In a fantastic duel, Roald Amundsen, took the prize. The story contrasts Amundsen and Scott, ending starkly with the death of Scott’s entire polar party.
