The Vukallective is a collective of young artists who are disruptors, innovators and inclusivity driven change-makers in South Africa. The company has a global perspective and drive to revolutionize the way the performing arts sector operates on the African continent. We create multi-disciplinary work with artists and companies who think and do things differently.
The Vukallective was established in 2014 as an artist collective, primarily working on projects on a part-time basis. Over the past seven years the organisation has grown, evolved and integrated its perspectives around the performing arts in South Africa.
The collective was born out of rebellion in a province of South Africa plagued by corruption and inequality to serve as a beacon of hope to artists and the community.
We have a proven talent for creating work under various constraints. The limits are always there, but we do it anyway. Collaboration is at the heart of what we do and over the years, we have built a reputation for delivering the highest quality productions and projects. We are growth-focused thought leaders with expertise in theatre production, design, event management, social media, content creation and anything we set our minds to.
Our aesthetic and perspective on current trends and social consciousness have translated into award-winning productions such as Liv Die x Vukallective (2020) TEHUIS (2019), AVU (2016) and Let's Eat Hair (2015). Our motto Creativity through Diversity is the driving force behind our work encouraging us to push boundaries in the arts by offering audiences works that are entertaining, exciting but most importantly, thought-provoking.
Vukallective’s team consists of founders Michelle Kim Hoffman and Jane Mamotse Mpholo. These two females from two totally different backgrounds, both using art to create a safe and fair space for all individuals are the heart, mind, and soul of the company whose passion and drive animates the work of the Vukallective. Our other founders Mark Antony Dobson and Michael Garbett are currently pursuing other passions outside of the collective.
Ironically our act of rebellion has served as the launchpad for our careers and has opened many new opportunities for us and those we work with. Every artist has a herd that they are trying to inspire and show that there is more to this thing we call life. Partner with the Vukallective. Let’s make it happen.
