UNDERMINED mashes up comic book and African storytelling, to tell the true tale of Madlebe, an ordinary man with an extraordinary gift, who came from Mozambique to find a job and take a better life home to his father and wife to be. However his uniquely finely tuned sense of hearing leads to some interesting developments along the way. Told against the backdrop of urban Jozi and the deep of the mines, it is a story of hope, perseverance, and an unexpected hero.
UNDERMINED premiered at the Kalk Bay Theatre in April this year. After a very successful run, UNDERMINED will perform only two shows at Alexander Upstairs before heading to the National Arts Festival with Cape Town Edge.
