IGNITE Stage: Finding the Fable

  • Time and Date: Thursday 12 May (17:30 - 18:00)
  • Speaker(s): Michael Murphree & Clara Bocchino,
    African Centre for Disaster Studies


On a quest to write an updated version of an age old fable, director/playwright Nicholas Ellenbogen accompanies consultant Michael Murphree on journey along the Limpopo river through farm land, tribal land and military held areas along the South Africa/Zimbabwe border.

A journey to find a new fable.

Finding the fable looks at issues of climate change and adaptation through the eyes of a very diverse group of people. The Limpopo border area is a fragmented landscape, which influences the lives and livelihoods of its inhabitants. Ordinary people tell how the Limpopo river, social and land issues, wildlife and cycles of drought and flood affect their everyday lives.
