A quick course on how to not get yourself in the shit when making a theatre show… This course will focus on the basics of producing: that is how to fund, market, stage and tour theatre productions. As most South African theatre practitioners self – produce their work, this is an essential skill of the South African theatre maker.

The workshop will take the format of a one day crash course from 10am – 5pm. Bring yourselves and a notebook. Fee: R 400 per person. We’re bringing this workshop back by popular demand in November. Send a mail to popartjhb@gmail.com if you are keen to attend.

Mondays at 7: 15pm at POPArt

A play space where we can come together and work on our improv skills. These weekly sessions are geared toward keeping improv muscles tight, and is not geared working toward any public performances, but the focus rather on skills training and practise. It is open to any advanced improvisors from any groups that feel they would like an extra opportunity to do this. Any participants must have improv training. Please email popartjhb@gmail.com to register to be on the group mailer, and confirm attendance.
