Kim KerfootAt the helm: Kim Kerfoot, winner of a 2011 Emerging Theatre Director's Bursary

UCT graduate Kim Kerfoot had a special guest on the opening night of his staging of Athol Fugard's Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act at the Theatre Arts Admin Collective in Observatory - the legendary playwright joined the director on the stage.

Statements was first written and performed in 1974, but has rarely been staged in this country. Kerfoot was able to helm the play - which enjoyed a sold-out five-day run in November - thanks to the 2011 Emerging Theatre Director's Bursary he won from the collective.

Kerfoot is one of four young directors to have won the bursary, also known as the GIPCA Baxter Theatre Centre Theatre Arts Admin Collective Emerging Theatre Director's Bursary, this year. It is offered through a partnership of UCT's Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA), the Baxter Theatre Centre and non-profit organisation the Theatre Arts Admin Collective.
