In South Africa, “ubuntu” refers to the spirit of community – the belief that humanity is tied together. In this international collaboration of Canadian and South African artists, UBUNTU tells the tale of a man and a woman, separated by oceans and both haunted by ghosts, who are drawn together to uncover the secrets of their pasts.

In UBUNTU, Jabba comes to Canada from South Africa in search of the father who abandoned him when he was a child. Weaving storytelling, music and dance, this critically acclaimed production celebrates these two cultures in a uniquely Canadian way.
