Twist Projects are looking for new theatre groups

Twist Projects is ready to start a new programme cycle, and are looking to meet with community theatre groups based in KZN.

They can only accept four groups into the project, and know that there are many more who would wish to be part of the programme.

“We will be visiting interested groups around KZN over the coming months, to find the groups we think will benefit most from being part of Twist. We will be selecting the four groups based on their artistic potential, community spirit, potential for sustained growth, and strength of leadership,” said a spokesman for Twist.

Criteria for selection of the groups include:

a) having been working together as a group for at least one year,

b) being based in one geographical area,

c) group members being out-of-school and not in permanent employment, and

d) be a theatre or drama group (not a dance or choir group).

Please email info@twistprojects.co.za with a short profile of your group, and your contact phone number if you are keen for them to come and visit you in your area.
