“Theatre is our church, this is where we pray, this is where we laugh, this is where we cry but more than anything this is where we mirror our communities. So with this amazing festival, it was during the week when I had a breakdown and my team sent me home, Tebza who is the musical director said it's no longer about you, it's a movement, it's about all of us.”
Napo revealed that a friend reminded her of her creativity when she was going through mental challenges and anxiety and took the audiences through her state of mind when she had a nervous breakdown and the support system that held her together in those moments.
“It was Ntate Mpho Molepo and his wife Rose when I was scared to be by myself they opened their home and they fed me and always they'll make sure when we are riding that all doors are locked so that I don't jump off.”
Herstory Festival started on August 1 and will end on August 7.
