Ingcwaba Lendoda Lise Cankwe Ndlela ("The grave of the man lies next to the road") is a workshopped piece created by director Mandla Mbothwe with the cast, consisting of Faniswa Yisa and members of Magnet Theatre's training programme.

A multi-media work structured around the African notion of home, and associated with the loss of the umbilical cord, as well as graves, histories, clans, and ancestors, the play explores the physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual dislocation of young black South Africans whose origins lie a long way down the N2 in the Eastern Cape.

Choreography was by Xolani Rani and choral direction by Nolufefe Mtswabe.
