Season 6 Episode 8

Tue, 4 Apr 2017 10:00pm

“We started this particular type of project…taking the theatre to the people….to implement our constitution…[we asked ourselves] how do we bring our people together that were divided….so we use the theatre as a tool….putting all our cultures on one stage”

Artscape Theatre is Cape Town’s principal centre for the performing arts. Every year, they travel to the rural areas of the Cape bringing with them art, entertainment and performing. In this episode, the programme’s coordinators describe the unifying effect that the Arts have on people and how this is such a necessary development in a country once divided.
