ASSITEJ South Africa presents Cradle of Creativity 2019, a series of theatre productions for young audiences.
This Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) is held at the Baxter Theatre Centre in Rosebank; Theatre Arts Admin Collective and Magnet Theatre in Observatory; and Guga S’Thebe in Langa.
Cradle of Creativity is a biennial festival and conference of theatre for children and young people. It celebrates inspiring international, African and South African theatre, dance, music and puppetry.
Each show is created especially for its young audience from teenagers to babies. Teachers can make block bookings for learners to attend a full day of performances and workshops. Delegates and artists can sign up for seminars, workshops and discussions; extending their professional development and adding to the TYA conversation.
Over the weekend, there is a special family focus and attendees are encouraged to bring along grandparents, uncles and aunts to join all the children and young people for two days of fun, entertainment and imagination.
There’s a giant puppets parade in Baxter’s gardens as part of a show from Barrydale called River and Redfin. Francois le Roux performs a concert of Ha!Man and food stalls are available.
The programme includes work for every age.
