BLUE MONDAY PLATFORM (article first published : 2004-08-13)

PANSA (the Performing Arts Network) is increasingly consicious that there is a strong need to actively build new emerging audiences in order for the local industry to survive in the long term.

This initiative is for the 18 28 year olds and is an attempt to address the artistic needs, aspirations and goals of younger theatre-goers and performers. Although there are many shows which the younger audiences support, many of the productions on the professional circuit tend to be geared more for the thirty-plus age group and are not always appealing to school leavers and tertiary education students.

One of the projects that PANSA is looking to run is aimed particularly at encouraging 18 to 25 year olds to explore coming to theatres. The younger members of the PANSA committee are running with the project which is taking the form of "Blue Monday Platform" - to be held at the Catalina once a month on a Monday night. The idea is to develop this into a theatre club - geared both at audience building and showcasing new work for and by 18 - 25 year olds.

With this in mind, PANSA invites all interested individuals to attend the first of these forums taking place at the Catalina Theatre, Wilson's Wharf on August 16. Anyone who would like to perform on the evening is also very welcome and should contact S'celo on 072 910 8567 or e-mail smbonambi@cybertek.co.za

Entrance is R20 and the forum kicks off at 19h00. See you there.
