Marlene le Roux has always maintained: a house is just a house. It is its inhabitants that will turn it into a home. Artscape is a home: a home for all. Annually, it is the home of close to 1000 productions and events including festivals, workshops and seminars.

With its emphasis on inclusivity, development and on nation building, the diverse programmes including its flagship programmes, are second to none. The annual Women’s Humanity Festival, the emphasis on youth development in youth month, the cultural diversity of programmes run over the September Heritage month and the giving of voices to young aspirant theatre makers with our New Voices programme are but some of the flagship projects that typify the “home for all” slogan.

What an exciting year 2023 indeed was. Artscape could bring you world premieres like the sensational songstress from India, Pratibha Singh Baghel, in Symphony of Love; the incredible Operalia, with Placido Domingo, the South African premieres of Pauline Viardot’s 1904 opera, Cendrillon (Cinderella) and Elvis Sibeko’s Manyano: Spirit of Ubuntu, as well as the first official A-capella Musical Festival, among a host of other national and international stars and events.

All of this, while it also plays home to Fine Music Radio, Cape Town Opera, Unmute Dance Company, Cape Town City Ballet, Jazzart Dance Theatre, Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, Zip Zap Circus and the newly-opened Woman Zone.

Says Artscape CEO, Marlene le Roux: “We are indeed excited and ready to host our thousands of patrons during 2024 for the most entertaining and culturally relevant events that we have secured from a host of independent producers, associated companies, highly skilled amateur theatre production companies as well as collaborative ventures with stakeholders and NGOs. We promise to maintain your theatre experience to the highest of integrity while we remain ever thankful for your continued support.  Without you the theatre is but an empty shell. We look forward to welcoming you home for an exciting 2024 and beyond.”
