SECOND THEATRE DOUBLE BILLS FESTIVAL FOR YOUTH MONTH CELEBRATIONS
The City of Ekurhuleni will host the second Theatre Double Bills Festival at Dumisani Masilela Theatre in Germiston on Friday, 03 June and Saturday, 04 June 2022. The productions form part of an annual Ekurhuleni Youth Month celebrations.
This festival is meant to develop young aspirant artists so that they grow into fully fledged artists who are able to take advantage of economic opportunities in the art space and build their own livelihoods.
This is in alignment with the National Government’s 2022 theme for Youth Month, which is the following: “Growing youth employment for an inclusive and transformed society”.
The Ekurhuleni Youth Month Programme is supported by Ekurhuleni Public Employment Programme EPEP, an initiation of the National Treasury and Presidential Employment Stimulus. Currently, more than 115 youth and adults are employed in the arts and creative sectors through the EPEP in the region.
This city has held developmental workshops, masterclasses and training for the same theatre groups in the past five years as an aftercare incubation programme for the theatre groups in the region.
All performances will take place in the afternoons and entrance is free. The public is encouraged to book their seats by emailing email@example.com
