Ankobia is directed by 2017 Standard Bank Young Artist For Theatre, Monageng ‘Vice’ Motshabi. The title is inspired by Marimba Ani’s Yorugu which serves as a critique of whiteness within a black context. Ankobia stretches into the future as a way of reflecting on the present. It allows for its audience to search inward and look at blackness seen from the lightness of their hopes, pride and dignity.
