The Shakespeare Schools Festival SA is hosted for the 8th time this year, and we are excited to extend our Outreach Programme to new communities in Cape Town, such as Mitchells Plain and Manenberg, where many learners will be experiencing live performances on the professional theatre stage for very first time, while they master performing the Shakespeare’s plays. The festival is an additional education program aimed at improving language and social skills through the performing arts. The Shakespeare Schools Festival Southern Africa, is Educape’s flagship project, piloted in 2010 by Kseniya Filinova-Bruton with the objective of revealing the link between the arts and education. Each year the festival encourages schools to perform abridged 30 minute versions of Shakespearean plays in local professional theatres. The festival is non-competitive, providing a platform of equal opportunity where there are no boundaries to participation.
