A broad range of disciplines, will be considered. The festival will include all types of theatre, including drama, physical theatre, dance theatre, music theatre, puppetry, site-specific performances, storytelling performances, and performances using multi-media, circus and other skills. The festival champions work which speaks to inter-cultural exchange and we encourage collaborative productions.

Join us in giving South African audiences a rich experience of work from across the globe and ignite the possibilities of theatre for children and young people.
