The Playhouse Company commemorates KZN theatre in October with its first ever KZN Arts Showcase, showcasing 10 home brewed productions!
Created to celebrate authentic local drama and dance works, this showcase has been co-curatored by The Playhouse Company with K-CAP, Umsindo Theatre Projects, The University of KZN Drama Department and an independent panel, who recommended productions based on pre-set criteria. This included nominations of the best productions from their respective programmes, festivals or competitions.
The KZN Arts Showcase will run from 6 to 21 October 2017 at the Playhouse Loft Theatre featuring productions identified for excellence at varying levels, including student productions and those that have been celebrated for their extended runs in festivals across South Africa.
The programme will also include master classes on directing, writing and marketing/publicity, facilitated by experts in these respective industries. In addition each weekend will include a Sundowner Concert & Poetry session with acts drawn from KZN’s own talent pool.
This showcase presents an opportunity for local artists to network and enjoy each other’s work, and be a part of a festival celebrating all kinds of theatre. The entire event is free but booking is essential for master classes and all productions. The full schedule is available on the Playhouse website www.playhousecompany.com
