AARDKLOP 2004 (article first published : 2004-04-2)

New, contempory and cutting edge work is encouraged for this year’s Aardklop National Arts Festival will be held from September 28 to October 2 in Potchefstroom. The closing date for proposals for all productions in all genres is April 30.

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. Box-office productions can expect a percentage sharing deal with the festival this year.

The aim is to have a total of 75 productions: 30 commissioned productions and 45 box-office productions.

"Aardklop once again urges artists to present new, contempory and cutting edge work that would complement the festival's development and future vision. However, the challenge exists to 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, business development manager.

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.

Application forms from Marijke Greeff on 018 294 7509 or e-mail: admin@aardklop.co.za or visit www.aardklop.co.za
