taking-theatre-to-the-people

Over the last two years Splitbeam has built a strong relationship with ASSITEJ South Africa, an NPO focused on promoting theatre for children and young audiences, benefiting not only the theatre practitioners and community arts groups that they support, but also thousands of young people for whom they make theatre accessible every year.

Splitbeam have made generous contributions of theatrical equipment and crew to ASSITEJ-SA’s projects such as their venue at the National School of the Arts’ Festival of Fame, and at the Family Festival of Theatre at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival, amongst others.

ASSITEJ-SA are hosting the ASSITEJ World Congress and Performing Arts Festival “Cradle of Creativity” in Cape Town, South Africa, between 17 – 27 May 2017 and Splitbeam are very pleased to have been awarded the job as technical suppliers.

40 top international live theatre, dance and music productions specifically aimed at children and youth from 0-19 years old, an international conference and a diverse program of workshops, presentations and discussions make up this very special event.

Splitbeam and ASSITEJ-SA are taking theatre to the people, with a selection of the best productions being performed in community venues in Langa, Atlantis, Phillipi and Vrygrond to make them accessible to these communities. More than 100 pre-schools, schools and youth groups will be directly engaged in the programs of performances and workshops and more than 10,000 children and young people and over 7,500 family members, teachers and theatre practitioners will experience performances.
