THEATRE4YOUTH Forum Comes to Cape Town

Submitted by

ASSITEJ SA will be hosting a day-long Theatre4Youth forum at the Masambe theatre, Baxter theatre complex, on Friday 31st January from 8h30 – 18h00. The forum aims to sustain an active dialogue between artists, educators, government and supporting bodies in order to engage with how theatre and the arts can best contribute to learning.

Inspiring a Generation is an ASSITEJ SA and Theatre Arts Admin Collective initiative that aims to inspire theatre practitioners to make innovative, cutting edge theatre for children in South Africa.

Cape Town audiences are in for a treat this festive season when two of South Africa’s sexiest and most popular actors, Maurice Paige and Theodore Jantjies, take to the stage to entertain audiences in Platform 9, from 2 December 2013 to 25 January 2014 in the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio.

  • I just saw the guy I wrote about in a play. I just saw him walk past my house as I sat in the winter sun pretending. He was real. His sunglasses shut out his window eyes Like tinted glass on gangsters’ cars. His hand brushed the low wall before he saw me and the […]

  • I am picking up the script for Drive With Me again. I have a proper two week run at Alexander Bar from 30 June to 12 July, the exact time of the Grahamstown festival. It is intentional irony. The show is set in Grahamstown, at the festival. Anyone who knows me knows the metaphorical death […]
