iMumbo Jumbo
By Jason Best for The Stage


"You think you are watching a drama show," declares a member of South African theatrical troupe Third World Bunfight at the start of their vibrant production iMumbo Jumbo. Then he enlightens the Barbican audience. "We are doing much bigger work here."

Written and directed by Brett Bailey, iMumbo Jumbo is a riot of singing, dancing and colourful spectacle. But the 21-strong company is not simply putting on a show, its members are enacting a dramatic ritual with a deep spiritual purpose.

One we missed:

Spectacular trip to a realm of magic and mysticism
Dominic Cavendish for The Daily Telegraph reviews iMumbo Jumbo at the Barbican

You'll see nothing quite like it on the London stage this year. iMumbo Jumbo: The Days of Miracle and Wonder, presented by South African company Third World Bunfight, descends on the Barbican with so much colour, noise and teeming vitality, it's as though the tip of the African continent had coming crashing through the roof.

Their last excursion brought Big Dada to the Pit, a riotous retelling of the Idi Amin story that made an all-singing, all-dancing carnival out of the despotic cannibal's rise and fall.
