The performance The Last Breath addressed issues surrounding immigration and xenophobia in South Africa. The Last Breath took the audience on the journey refugees take to get to South Africa. This production was based on the story of Chilishe Nelson Musonda from Zambia, a former student of the Art and Media Access Center. It addressed his arrival in South Africa, his struggle to stay in the country, anger, frustration and xenophobia. It was about the love for the family he left behind that gave him the strength to keep fighting for a better life for himself and his family. The Last Breath was performed as part of the Ikhwezi Theater Festival in Cape Town. This festival provides a platform for community theatre groups in South Africa and Cape Town in particular.
