SIBUSISO KHWINANA THEATRE   

Xova (Ukuxova), a Xhosa word meaning "to prepare dough for home-baked bread", is used as a metaphor for the responsibility of raising a child. The endured hardships of solo parenthood and father absenteeism is brought to stage for examination. Set on a dry and dusty village on the outskirts of Pretoria, Xova follows a young woman in a heavily disadvantaged family, giving birth to a healthy child and having to raise the child without the husband. Her husband abandoned the family after being retrenched from his job and is unaware of the birth of his child. His wife, in her early twenties, is left to be the sole breadwinner of the family. A tale with blended text between Xhosa and English, body language and emotions carry the story through performance art. The story is told through melody and movement, designed with a 3D feel and enriched by symbolism and minimalism.
