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 https://warwick.ac.uk/awpn

Bear Jam Productions proudly presents The Hibernation Film Festival. A festival born out of the recent events that have unfolded across the globe. However, despite being confined to our homes, we are turning this pandemic on its head and want to celebrate filmmakers’ work from around the world. So, we have decided to not only “Do More Video,” but to host our very own online festival.

SHUT DOWN BUT SCRATCHING
