Kuvanyori vemitambo yekuyedzesera


Musahoti hamuna kunge manzwa hokero yemitambo yakareba kwemaminitsi gumi. Intwasa Arts Festival koBulawayo iri kukukokai mose vane chipo kuti muvatumire zvinyorwa zvenyu. 

INTWASA ARTS FESTIVAL koBULAWAYO’s

SHORT PLAYS PROJECT

2014

The project seeks to breathe new, fresh life into the theatre sector by encouraging experimental and thought provoking plays by new and experienced theatre writers and directors. By seeking to reach out to new and old theatre directors, playwrights and actors the project encourages the spirit of collaboration.
Playwrights are invited to submit 10 - minute scripts of their own choice. The scripts should have a maximum of 3 characters. Selected scripts will be given to selected directors (old and new) to cast, direct and produce. The best four plays will be slotted for a run during the 2014 edition of Intwasa Arts Festival koBulawayo in September where the best play, best script, best director, best actor and actress will be awarded prizes.
The Short Plays project is in its 2nd year.  Last year exciting pieces like Shoes, The Madalas, The Miracle of Crocodile Flats, and The Preposition were produced by several writers and directors.
This year’s project is being implemented in collaboration with Nhimbe Trust’s WIT LAB and Amakhosi’s Plays on Sunday. The project will see a two months continuous programme of play presentation at Amakhosi Cultural Centre from June to August 2014.
The Short Plays Project is part of the in-between festival activities that Intwasa Arts Festival koBulawayo undertakes as a long term audience building initiative. During its first year the project saw 12 new short works being created and performed at Amakhosi Cultural Centre. It also encouraged new and old actors and directors to collaborate and work together. Audience attendance increased from about 20 people per show on day one to about 200 people within a month. This clearly showed that there is potential for more people to patronise theatre if artists produce products that are relevant and of high quality. 
Another objective of the project is to identify potential good ideas in the hope of reworking them into full length plays. Playwrights and directors are also encouraged to continue to produce new good works for actors and audiences.

Deadline for registration is 20 April 2014
