The annual student drama festival, Krêkvars-Kopanong, is set to take place on UP’s Hatfield campus from 18-23 July.
The festival promises a wide variety of shows and genres, many of them performed, written or directed by UP’s own students. The festival program runs all day with the Lier, Masker and Bok theatres at the heart it, along with two other venues: a film studio and an “open-air” theatre. Tickets cost only R20, making it cheaper and more unique than your typical night out.
According to a press release, “This year’s highlights include a physical theatre piece by Mozambican artists, Giftig performed by Micia De Wet and Bailey Snyman, 2012 Standard Bank Young Artist of the Year, and If these Bodies Could Speak performed by Nicola Haskins and Bailey Snyman, both fresh off the Prague Fringe Festival.”
