Theatre & Performance Studies News

Woza AfricaOn 15 April, via the African Women Playwrights' Network project, Yvette Hutchison launched Woza Africa: Theatre in the African Context, a free digital education resource which she designed with Kenyan playwright JC Niala and Public Engagement Consultant Flo Swann, to introduce teachers, theatre groups and students around the world to a wide range of African approaches to storytelling, alongside historic and cultural frames of reference.

It has had good take-up, with some 82 schools, theatre groups, public sector organisations and Universities from 19 countries uploading it so far. Theatres like the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry and Birmingham Mac have signalled their intent to use it with their youth drama groups.

So please use or pass on the link to anyone who you think may want to explore aspects of theatre specific to the African contexts, especially with the challenges of remote teaching and home schooling right now

One of the smartest emerging companies in British theatre, Breach Theatre are interrogating the nature of veracity on stage. Against the backdrop of the post-truth era, their work often interrogates the limits of documentary theatre and re-enactment. Following the success of It’s True It’s True It’s True, a verbatim piece fashioned out of transcripts from a 17th century rape trial, two of the company’s co-founders Billy Barrett and Ellice Stevens join Helen Gush to discuss the topicality of the show and their approach to devising.
