Tau is set in the Free State where cultural norms and traditional practices still play an important part in the community. Tau lives in a conflict of modern and traditional norms deeply rooted in African history and mythology. His father is a traditionalist and a community elder and his mother a neo-traditionalist with the ability to be swayed. Confronted by this conflict, Tau embarks on a journey of discovering his manhood, himself and his Sesotho culture.
- Tau was a big winner at this year’s Naledi Awards: it won in the categories Best Ensemble and Best Original Choreography (Nhlanhla Mahlangu), Best Lighting Design (Hlomohang Mothetho)
