Twist Theatre Development Projects is a dynamic networking project that focuses on the development of community theatre groups in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa, and on the creation of sustainable relationships and networks for theatre development, both locally and abroad.
The Twist Project works with established community theatre groups in different regions of KZN and links them with local institutes such as theatre organisations, the drama departments of theatre schools, theatre festivals, mentors and experienced theatre practitioners.
These professionals and experts work together with the community groups on ten different projects annually. The projects include festivals, writing workshops, directing and performing projects, and international exchange. The projects are designed to assist the selected community theatre groups to develop the quality of their work artistically, and to develop their capacity to build their groups into self-sustaining bodies.
