Ukwanda Puppets and Designs Art Collective

Luyanda Nogodlwana, Ncedile Daki, Sipho Ngxola and Siphokazi Mpofu had and urge to extend their new-found passion for puppetry arts to the community of Masiphumelele and so the the Ukwanda Puppetry and Design Company was born.

They have travelled abroad to perform at schools, theatres, festivals, and significant UWC events , won awards at the National Arts Festival, and through workshops and other interventions have made invaluable contributions to the CHR’s ongoing commitment to re-imagining a post-apartheid city. Their work was at the heart of the annual Barrydale Puppet Parade and Performance through a decade-long partnership with Net vir Pret.
