Soweto Theatre has risen to the occasion during the pandemic and found an innovative way to bring the 2021 School Setworks to learners. Using ground-breaking means to merge theatre and education, to stimulate creative and individual thinking. This is a great opportunity for all schools in Gauteng to see their isiZulu set books, Ubhuku Lwamanqe and Icala Kaliboli, come alive as Soweto Theatre takes the School Setworks Festival to schools across the province from March – December 2021.
This theatre initiative which was staged and filmed in front of a live audience will be screened at schools for only R50 per learner. The live screening of the setworks: Ubhuku Lwamanqe and Icala Kaliboli will be an opportunity for students to partake in developing their skills in analysis, interpretation and self – expression of the books set in this year’s curriculum by the Gauteng Department of Education.
Soweto theatre will come through to schools that have booked with all their equipment for a live screening. Set up in the hall and let learners and educators experience the storyline of their set book in an entirely different form.
Should learners want to watch from the comfort of their own homes, Soweto Theatre has an option for them to buy a ticket for R20 to stream it online. They can logon to the Soweto Theatre website and purchase their very own ticket.
