His ID card did not say ‘Belgian’ or ‘South African’, it said VADERLANDLOOS (STATELESS), in capital letters. So as a child he created his own country, where he went to live with all his demons.

In this exciting and captivating performance, Junior Mthombeni and his musical companions take you on a trip. A trip that weaves together his family history and his own story, which he shares with the audience. Sometimes subdued, serene and vulnerable, sometimes loud, raw and combative. Junior’s words and the live music penetrate your soul, but they also offer a warm sanctuary for anyone who is looking for their place in life and in this world.
