ASSITEJ SA has over the past few years identified a number of weaknesses and absences in our current theatre for young audiences landscape, which include:
- theatre for the very young (0-4 year olds),
- dance theatre for young audiences (of all ages), and
- quality, non-didactic theatre for teens.
ASSITEJ SA has a number of showcase opportunities in 2015. We are calling for new productions for children and young people (0-18 years) to present at our platforms at:
ASSITEJ Family Venue at National Arts Festival (2-12 July) in Grahamstown, Observatory Family Festival in Cape Town (20-28 March); Naledi Theatre for Young Audience Showcase 25-26 April, amongst others
Deadline for applications: 12 January 2015
(PLEASE NOTE: With National Arts Festival, you also have to apply to the Festival Fringe: deadline - 16 January 2015)
