The Market Theatre Foundation is thrilled to announce the 29th edition of the Zwakala Festival, showcasing the most exciting and talented artists in South Africa.
This year, the festival is bringing an innovative new approach by appointing the dynamic Momo Matsunyane as Festival Director. Under Momo’s guidance, the festival is set to be bigger and better than ever.
As a foundation that prides itself on bringing the theatre to the community, the Zwakala Festival has a long history of discovering and nurturing talented artists from underprivileged communities. With past success stories like Isithunzi, Dikakapa, and Tau, all of which have earned recognition and awards on a national level, this year’s festival promises to continue this legacy.
This year’s festival will tackle important social and cultural issues through four powerful productions. From a story about preserving African history and mental slavery, to a play about the challenges of pursuing one’s passion, there is something for everyone at the Zwakala Festival.
Join us on the 10th and 11th of February 2023, with showtimes starting at 9 am and immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage.
The festival is sponsored by the Department of Sports, Arts, and Culture Incubation Program. Free tickets can be accessed online via Webticket or at the door.
For any questions regarding the festival, please reach out to Festival Coordinator Sipho Mwale at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t miss out on the chance to be a part of the magic of the Zwakala Festival and support the next generation of South African artists.
Time: 13h30 – 18h30 Friday and Saturday
