AARDKLOP 2003 (article first published : 2003-02-3)

The closing date for proposals for productions in all genres for this year’s Aardklop National Arts Festival is April 30, 2003. This year’s festival will be held in Potchefstroom from September 23 to 27.

Prospective participants can apply for two types of productions: commissioned or box-office productions.

For commissioned productions, the festival organisers pay a set fee, but all the takings at the door go to Aardklop. For box-office productions, the participants pay their own expenses, but a large percentage of the takings will go into their own pockets. The aim is to have a total of 75 productions (compared with last year’s 95): 30 commissioned productions and 45 box-office productions.

"Aardklop urges the artists to present new and cutting edge work – that would compliment the festival’s development and future vision. However the challenge exists to still ensure that these productions are financially viable and successful, since that would guarantee the continuation of the festival and that of the arts," says Giep van Zyl, festival manager.

Like last year, Aardklop will accept tenders. More information on tender procedures will be available on the website shortly as well as in the media. Commissioned and box-office productions are announced simultaneously and bookings for both open on the same day, which place all participants on an equal footing.

Prospective participants can obtain application forms from Tineke van der Walt at 018 294-7509 or e-mail admin@aardklop.co.za or visit www.aardklop.co.za
