WANDERING WORDS (article first published : 2001-08-31)

Kwasuka Theatre recently hosted an afternoon of original poetry from school pupils titled Wandering words/Wandelwoorde.

Organisers Retha Durose and Jean Parsons as well as the audience were impressed with the standard of the material submitted. Professor Pieter Scholtz, artist director of Kwasuka, opened the poetry reading and well-known actor/playwright John van de Ruit was the guest speaker. “John commended the poets on their courage,” says Retha. “He knows how difficult it is to share what one has written with others and especially with strangers.”

The participants went onto the stage in groups of three and read one or more of their own poems. “In view of the success of the afternoon we feel that similar poetry readings should be considered - perhaps combined with original music,” adds Retha, who is a trustee of Kwasuka Theatre.
