Mount Havila and Tshimo ea Morara, both written and directed by Thabo Ramiane, are two of the 40 productions
that will be showcased in the Community Theatre Practitioners’ incubator programme in 2017. The Mythology Theatre Organisation from Khutsong Township participated in the programme and attended the auditions at The Market Theatre Laboratory in Johannesburg on Saturday, 6 May. The purpose of the programme is to improve the skills of writers, directors, designers and actors. It empowers them to create and produce local content of a high standard and trains the next generation of community arts leaders, arts entrepreneurs and administrators and exposes them to both the creative and practical sides of producing a professional theatre piece. The group leaders (usually writers and directors) receive specialised training and resources to improve the quality of their work and their leadership, ultimately benefiting the entire group. The incubation programme aims to help emerging practitioners hone their skills through mentorship and propel them from amateur to professional status. The process also places a strong emphasis on home-grown content to, hopefully, generate exciting new productions for the theatre-going public.
