UCT Student Theatre to National Arts Festival

The annual creative pilgrimage to the National Arts Festival is fast approaching, where thousands of artists descend upon South Africa’s largest arts festival in the small settler town of Grahamstown. A staple of the festival is the Student Theatre Programme, in which student artists and representatives from theatre schools and learning institutes across the country come together to showcase new work. The student theatre at the festival has gone on to propel many young artists into the professional industry. Last year the production from UCT, “Don’t Shoot the Harbinger”, which was directed by then UCT final year student Kei-Ella Loewe, was awarded with ‘Best Script’ in the National Arts Festival Student Theatre Programme, which was written by then UCT final year students Katya Mendelson, Ameera Conrad, and Thando Mangcu. This year the theatre-making students will be showcasing their new collaborative and devised work “Figs” at the festival, but not without challenge.
