Res festival turns ten

04 June 2007

From 21-25 August, students from 15 residences will take to the planks for the 10th anniversary of the Res 4 Res Theatre Festival.

The festival was launched in 1997 and is organised by the UCT Student Development Office and the Department of Drama. The brainchild of drama's Associate Professor Gay Morris, who is now the supervisor of the project, the vision she had was "–of a festival that is not directed towards the small group of students studying drama here at UCT, but toward the student body as a whole: all those who wish to try out their talents".

Ten years later that is still the focus of the festival.

The 15 residences taking part are Baxter Hall, Tugwell Hall, Leo Marquad, Graça Machel, Kopano, Groote Schuur Residence, Fuller Hall, Smuts Hall, Clarinus, Rochester, Forest Hill, Varietas, Liesbeek Gardens, Glenres and Medical Residence.

They are all in different stages of the process now, says Ntokozo Madlala, festival co-ordinator. "Some have chosen their plays and started rehearsals; some are still in the process of finalising their choices and are hoping for a few rehearsals before the June vacation."
