Horn of Sorrow is an extraordinary piece of physical theatre that focuses on the plight of the endangered rhino.

If you’re interested in conservation and the very topical issue of rhino poaching in South Africa, this production’s a must. Created in the mid 1980’s by Nicholas Ellenbogen, with a cast of imaginative and dynamic actors, it tells the story of the plight of the rhino from different perspectives – as seen through the eyes of a predator vulture, the story teller, as well as from the point of view of poachers and local communities who see poaching as a means to earn a living, rather than the destruction of South Africa’s natural heritage and its devastating effect on the tourism industry.
