Broken Chord

Author(s): Gregory Maqoma
Running time: 1h 00min approx

The story of a South African chorus whose tour through North America and England in the late 19th century was marred by the realities of racism.

The production charts the journey of a group of singers known as The African Choir who travelled by boat in 1891 to collect donations to build a school. Despite the tensions between South Africa and the colonial power Great Britain, the tour became a success and the choir performed for Queen Victoria.

Maqoma and Sibisi give an overdue voice to a significant and often disregarded story in South African and British history.
